Extract from BMC Report

The men's 1500m A race was dominated by overseas athletes, but Birchfield Harrier Adam Cotton was the pick of the Brits with a BMC under-20 record in fourth.
He clocked 3:41.33 behind Spanish winner David Bustos to gain the qualifying time for the European Under-20 Championships in Tallinn, one of five athletes to do so.
In eighth was 17-year-old Charlie Grice, whose 3:42.86 took nearly six seconds off his best. The Youth Olympic Games 1000m bronze medallist thus closed in on the UK age-17 best of 3:40.09 held by Steve Cram.
Last but by no means least in the A race was U20 Jonathan Hay, with 3:43.61, while Richard Goodman (3:46.84) and Tom Curr (3:46.82) also set marks for Tallinn in the B and C races respectively.
