UK 10K Trials Run Through A Bar: Total Unknown Jess Andrews Sets Huge 83-Second PB To Win British 10,000m Trials And Qualify For Rio; Jo Pavey And Andy Vernon Falter
There was drama and excitement at the British 10,000 Trials as in front of thousands of spectators and bar-goers, Andrews went from nobody to Olympian, beating Kenya's former World champion Linet Masai in the process. The night was less kind to 42-year-old Jo Pavey who most likely misssed out on qualifying for her 5th Olympic Games.
