Well done to Rachel Ayreton who won both the 800 metre and 1500 metre races at the JCC Maccabi Games in New Jersey, USA.
Both races were slow tactical affairs – although several girls claimed to have similar PBs to Rachel.
In the 800 metres Rachel took the lead with 300 metres to go and ran a negative split – the winning time was 2.40.
In the 1500 metres race (the following day) it was a similar story – a slow opening 800 metres – Rachel took the lead with 500 metres to go and won in 5.37.
Then in the 400m relay, Rachel ran a PB of 67.41 – electronic timing.
