Erme Valley’s Battershill sets new PB on his Diamond League debut in Monaco

ERME Valley Harriers’ Will Battershill moved up to 13th on the British all-time 3,000m steeplechase list as he set a new personal best on his Diamond League debut in Monaco on Friday night.

The new British champion clocked 8:22.64 to finish 12th in a high-quality field.

He did beat former Olympic and world champion Consesuls Kipruto, 2022 Commonwealth Games medallist Amos Seren and American number two Benard Keter.

The race was won by new Kenyan champion Simon Kiprop, who smashed his PB to win in 8:04.19.

Battershill did miss out on the tough World Championship qualifying time, but he has knocked five seconds of his best in the last couple of months.
