Belgrave’s Nick Goolab was crowned English 10k Champion by winning the Brighton Marathon Weekend 10k on Sunday.
His time of 28:22 was a personal best, a course record and the fastest road 10k by any Briton since Mo Farah ran 28:04 in Cardiff in 2016. Only Farah and Chris Thompson have run quicker this century.
Nick finished comfortably ahead of a strong elite field that included GB internationals Adam Hickey (28:53), Andrew Heyes (28:56) and Ben Connor (29:03).
The result completes a string of seriously impressive performances on the road this year, including a 64:34 HM debut in Bath and the fastest long leg at the Southern Road Relays in Milton Keynes.
