Hanžeković Memorial in Zagreb

There were a number of excellent performances in the Hanžeković Memorial in Zagreb, Croatia. The men's 800 was the race of the evening resulting in British 1-2-3. Daniel Rowden ran a PR of 1:44.09 to beat Elliot Giles (1:44.75) with Jake Wightman third in 1:44.85 with Bryce Hoppel (1:44.95) fourth.

Rowden said afterwards: "It was a great field. To come out on top was incredible and to run a PR even better. The atmosphere, even with a few people here, was great. The organization has been great and the track amazing".
