Gauson looks to World Indoors

Kris Gauson

Kris Gauson has ambitions to feature at the World Indoor Championships in Turkey in March – and he kept those hopes firmly on track over the weekend.

The 23-year-old delivered one of the best runs over 3000 metres indoors by a Scot in a number of years at the Gladstein Invitational in Indiana.

Kris clocked 8.01.40 for a Personal Best and to finish third in a race won in 7.58.20 by Team Indiana Elite athlete Matt Elliott.

With Gauson aiming for the 1500 metres in Istanbul it was a decent effort over the longer distance following New Year training in Mexico. His target will now be the British Indoor trials for Turkey which take place in Sheffield on February 11/12.

David Bishop returned to form with a seventh place finish in the same race in 8.07.65 – not far off his PB for the distance. David also has his eyes on the Indoor trials in Sheffield.

The third Scot involved in the Gladstein Invitational 3000 metres was Callum Hawkins with the Butler University student finishing 19th in 8.23.58.

Chris O’Hare was another Scottish athlete in impressive form over last weekend in the United States.

The 21-year-old University of Tulsa student won the J.D.Martin Invitational 800 metres race at Oklahoma University last  Saturday.

Chris (pictured) triumphed in 1.52.60 with a margin of more than three seconds from Matt Russ from North Texas.

‘Chris was reasonably satisfied with his 800 metre run and although not particularly fast the victory gap was enough that he didn’t need to force it over the final few stretch,’ said his father, Terry O’Hare.

‘He was second in the National Collegiate Indoor Mile last year with a time of 3.56.4 and he has targeted that event again later this spring.

‘Before that he has an invitation to race in New York at the Armoury in the Millrose Games event. It is a prestigious meeting  but probably only the Americans could call the race the ‘Wanamaker Mile’ !

‘My wife and I are planning to be in New York for that one and we’re looking forward to seeing Chris race. He has trained hard this winter, doing cross country training while not actually taking part in that as he keeps his focus on indoor events.’
