Sub-2min 800m for Anton
I mentioned at the junior awards on Sunday that the most promising newcomer award winner Anton Kobus had come agonisingly close to breaking the 2 minute barrier for 800m several times and had a few opportunities left this season to achieve it. Well he has done it with a 1.59.48 run at the Livingston Open Graded last night which puts him top ten U17 in Scotland. It is also marginally ahead of Kobe Steven's 1.59.75 from earlier this summer. Not bad for his first season and for someone who is a mere 6 days off still being U17 next season.
