Scottish Eilish McColgan Breaks European Record

This is a blissful year for Scottish runner Eilish McColgan as she has broken another record again. Just few months ago she broke half marathon national record, but earlier today she went big by broken European 10km record after taking 2nd place at the Great Manchester Run on Sunday, May 22.

The 31-year-old McColgan coached by Liz McColgan, shaved two seconds off Paula Radcliffe’s record of 30 minutes 31 from 2003.  She crossed the finish line in 30 minutes 19 seconds, just four seconds behind Olympic and World Champion Hellen Obiri of Kenya.

Kenyans Ruth Chepngetich clocked 30:29 and Sharon Lokedi ran 31:05 to place third and fourth, respectively.

New Zealand’s Jake Robertson won the men’s race in 28:06, ahead of Australian Jack Reyner.
