Eilish McColgan set a new personal best in California

Eilish McColgan just missed her mother’s Scotland record with a new personal best in The Ten 10,000m race.

McColgan, 30, finished third in 30:58.94 behind Americans Elise Cranny and Karissa Schweizer in California.

She now has the second best time for a Scottish female over the distance, with Liz McColgan’s 1991 time of 30:57.07 still the record.

British Athletics have set a time of 31:25.00 for participation in this summer’s delayed Tokyo Olympics.

The British record is the 30:01.09 set by Paul Radcliffe in August 2002.
