Berwick athlete Guy Learmonth has booked his place on the British team for next month’s European Indoor Championship in Prague after running the 800m qualifying time.

Learmonth and James Bowness both guaranteed their spots on the British team in the 800m, running inside the qualifying time of 1:48.00 despite finishing seventh and eighth respectively at the Sainsbury’s Indoor Grand Prix in Birmingham.

The 22-year-old’s time of 1:47:38 was an indoor personal best.
