WELLINGTON (NZL): Nick Willis is aiming to contest the 1500m and 5000m at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast next April, informs the New Zealand Herald. "I'm hoping October, November and December I can keep a consistent 100-105 mile week average going until Christmas, and that should lay a really good foundation to have a crack at a successful 5000/1500 double at the Commonwealth Games. It's something that I have been wanting to do after Rio, but with all my injury setbacks it wasn't even really an option for this year," he said.
