Max Burgin set the U20/U23 English record on 26 June 2019, when he blasted a fine 1:45.36. In his 4 races of note this season, Max, all of 17, has won his first four events. In the Birmingham Diamond League, against many of the finest in the world, Max took tenth in 1:47.99. It was not what he expected. For the promising seventeen year old, there are many more races in his future.
