Jo Pavey and Gemma Steel are views into different generations of British distance runners. Jo Pavey, after over 22 years of racing, won the bronze in the Commonwealth Games 5,000 meters, and then, the gold in the European Champs 10,000 meters.
Gemma Steel is not a track athlete. She will tell you that. Gemma has come through rigorous cross country racing and found that, as the distance gets longer, she gets better, with a 68:18 PB at the half marathon. Gemma is considering her marathon debut at Amsterdam in October 2015.
This presser was done on Friday, 8 May. Jo Pavey is pretty chatty, but Gemma is not comfortable yet with the interview process, but she did pretty well considering that.
Both Gemma Steel and Jo Pavey will be racing the Manchester Great Run 10k on Sunday, May 10, 2015.
Thanks to Gemma Steel and Jo Pavey for their time and answers.
