Revee Walcott-Nolan wins breakthrough award

Revee Walcott-Nolan is the BASC Brealthrough athlete from the European Team Championships following her victory in the 3000m in her debut GB&NI appearance. Revee ran a superbly timed race. As the pace picked up throughout the contest, the Briton kept a close eye on the leaders and on the final lap came through to earn a memorable victory for the British team.

Afterwards, she said, “I’m really happy to get a win. My last 3000m was eight weeks ago and my training has dropped down more to suit 800m/1500m, so coming into today I was a bit nervous as I wondered if I still had it there over 3000m. I felt good the whole way round, but it started to bite a bit on the last lap. I just knew if I could hold onto the girl in front, it would be anyone’s game.

“It is really good to be up against girls who have run quick times over the distance, it was a good test against them, and I’m really pleased to get the win.”
