Oxy USATF HP Meet – Mullett Hits B Standard


Rob Mullett, ex-Butler student-athlete, went a second quicker than at Stanford a few weeks ago and in doing so became the only British male steeplechaser to have an Olympic standard. He was 0.38 seconds inside the B standard.

Rory Fraser fell less than a second outside the 5000m B standard for the second time this season in a 5000 won by Mo Farah, only a matter of hours after he had won the 1500 in 3:34.66, another A Standard. The only British collegiate competing was Chris O’Hare who consolidated his 3:37 PB from Stanford with a solid 3:39, just behind fellow countryman, and another Butler alumni, Kris Gauson who dipped under 3:40 for the first time.
