Hercules Wimbledon: Charlie Wyllie hits personal best at British Milers Club Grand Prix

A quieter weekend on the circuit didn’t stop some standout performances from Hercules Wimbledon Athletic Club athletes.
Charlie Wyllie travelled up to Sport City, Manchester for the British Milers Club Grand Prix on Saturday, making the most of the long trip to leap three places higher up the Hercules all-time 1500m list with a new personal best of 3:45.24. It was good enough to place him third in the B race, the same position he now holds in the all-time Hercules rankings.
Wyllie was well in contention coming off the final turn and even looked like he might take the victory down the home straight but Daniel Brookling of Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow held firm, Wyllie himself being consoled with a new personal best by over a second.
Wyllie is currently chasing the qualifying standard of 3:44.00 for the British Championships on the weekend of 28th June and will go again on Wednesday 29th May on his home track in Wimbledon Park for the Hercules 1500m night.
At the South London Athletics Network meet in Tooting Bec on Saturday, a number of sprint performers recorded new personal bests.
Thomas Whorton led the field in the 300m, the only athlete under 40 seconds in a new best of 39.44s. Alex Hughes was fourth in the same race (41.37s) with Kishon Cisse winning race two in 42.62s.
Kristina Frost went under 45 seconds for the first time in 44.96s, finishing fourth in race two. Beatrice Eminson won race three in 45.31s, not a bad debut over the distance for the U15!
Over 100m, U20 Eli Amusan took two-tenths of a second of his previous best mark to finish second in race one in 11.59s. It was the second fastest of any 100m performances on the day.
Tommaso Crosara is still only an U15 but has already broken 12 seconds as he ran 11.97s for second in race two. That time ranked him fifth on the day overall. Crosara came back to finish second in race two of the 200m, in 24.66s. Dylan Siow was not far behind in third in 25.53s
U17 Imana Remedios had a breakthrough to run 13.00s in race four over 100m, again earning her second place. Remedios’ previous best of 13.1s came last summer.
The biggest improver on the day has to go to Ross Dunipace, the U15 took over half a second off his previous best to run 13.25s, winning race six by a full second.
Over 400m Torin Cox finished third overall with a new personal best of 58.34s.
In the 200m races, Freya McAndie recorded a new personal best of 27.72s. Rheana Parmar, competing in race eight won her heat in a new best of 30.11s.
