    But Burgin has run much faster than Coe, Ovett, Cram, Elliot, Kzcozcot, and the WR holder Rudisha ever ran at that age.

    However, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.

    There have been precocious teenaged 800m runners in the past, like Kaki and Timothy Kitum.... But both of those athletes, Kaki just turned 30 and Kitum, not even 25 years old yet, have completely disappeared from the scene. (Kaki hasn't run at all since 2016, and Kitum hasn't run at all this year and last ran sub 1:44 in 2016.) Let's just be careful with this Burgin lad.
    My cautions to this would be, do we *really* trust the ages given by East African athletes? I watched Aman at World Youths in 2011 and couldnt find a coach who believed his true age was the age documented.

    Didn't realise that Max Burgin is a North-Easterner. He still has 2.49s to improve to get the North-Eastern 800m record.

    Ethan Brown goes top of the 2019 European U-20 ranking lists after winning the U-20 400m final in a new personal best of 46.45, taking 0.40 off his prior best and again well under the U-20 qualifying standard for the Euro U-20s.... He's looking like quite a talent.

    We've got some great youngsters in the Men's 800m at the moment. Ben Pattison of Basingstoke in 2nd 1:46:71. Brilliant.

    Max Burgin!!!!!


    1:45.36!!!!!!


    WHAT?!?!?!

    (That time from Burgin takes him to #7 on the WORLD all time list for U-18 800m athletes, and is #2 only to Yuriy Borzakovskiy on the European junior all time lists. The time is so good that Burgin has also attained the outright qualifying standard for Doha! AND he is currently ranked #1 in Britain in all age groups, junior, U-23 and senior!!! Crazy!)

    But let's not forget about Ben Pattison, who reached the final of the European U-18 400m last year. He's stepped up this year to the 800 and he was dragged along by Burgin's amazing run to a huge personal best of his own, the 18 year old going sub 1:47 for the first time with a 1:46.71 clocking, a time that before today would have been regarded with some wonder as well! Pattison took over 2 SECONDS out of his previous best!

    In 3rd place getting the bronze medal was Finley Mclear who already had the qualifying standard but in this special race was like Pattison, dragged into new territory, smashing his personal best by a second to new figures of 1:47.33 and ensuring he's on the plane to Boras with Burgin and Pattison.

    Amazing!!

    Amber Anning is worth watching for sure now. She won the U-20 400m final with a dominating run, and she lowered her PB to 52.54, going top of the 2019 400m rankings in Europe and moving up in the UK all time lists too.

    Louise Evans who came 2nd, looks like she has absolutely obliterated her prior PB too (54.58), looking like she was well under 54 seconds and possibly under the 53.90 U-20 qualifying standard as well. And indeed Evans gained a fabulous new personal best of 53.55 along with the U-20 quali time. Excellent stuff!

    In the men's U-23 200m final, Shemar Baldizar edges out Toby Harries to the gold medal and in the process runs a huge new PB of 20.65 (subject to wind speed) and a qualifying time for the U-23 championships in Gavle in a couple of weeks. Harries, returning to the form that got him the European U-20 200m gold medal in 2017 (ahead of Efoloko btw), also sets a potential new lifetime best, running 20.75 (again subject to the wind speed) and going beneath the U-23 qualifying standard (20.80). Great race!

    Efoloko, clearly not in the form that got him gold in Tampere at the World Juniors last year, faded to 4th place, pipped on the line by Jahde Williams for the bronze medal.

    No Aliu in the women's U-20 semi final heat... Hopefully just a precaution.

    Just found him! He was on the U-17 listing as you say. The commentators also mentioned that he's just 16 years old. He certainly has made a quick start in the TJ.
