Also moving up the all-time rankings, Ellie Buckley (23) won the 1600m competition by negative splitting her race. After coming through the 1st 800m in 2:35, she finished with a time of 5:08.03.

Other notable performances in the 4-lap race included a 4:33.92 effort from Rhys Pullen (22) and a 1st-time sub-5:40 finish from Caroline McCool (23).
