Apparently Andrews wasn't eligible for the UK title which UK Athletics have now awarded to Scot Beth Potter, according to Scottish Athletics - can't see any other confirmation of this. There was a snide remark on FB after her win about Andrews not running in an official club vest?
"It has also now been confirmed by British Athletics that Potter, Scottish National XC champion for 2016, earned the British 10,000m track title at the Highgate event with race winner Jess Andrews not eligible for the gold."
Jess used to run for Aldershot Farnham & District (AFD) but as she lives in Spain/Andorra now she is not a first claim member of a UK club, which is a requirement to win the UK title.
