Max Burgin is one amazing 800m runner. At 18, Max has run 1:44.75. This piece was done post Stockholm last weekend, and Stuart Weir thought it was a good piece to let you learn about the young British star.

Max Burgin finished sixth in the 800m at the Bauhaus in 1:46.02 but was disappointed with his performance. The 18 year-old had run 1:44.75 less than two weeks ago at a local meet. Last year he set European and UK age-group 800m records. He is coached by his grandfather and father.
These are his thoughts on Stockholm:
