Illawarra runners bow out of world titles


Albion Park runner Jessica Hull has clocked a PB in the 1500 metres semi finals but narrowly missed out on qualifying for the final at the World Athletics Championships in Doha.

Hull ran in the quickest heat where the top five runners automatically advanced along with the next two fastest.

She finished 8th in a time of 4.01.80 to miss out by just under three tenths of a second despite the top five runners in heat one clocking times between 4.14.69 and 4.15.49.

Fellow Aussie Linden Hall was 10th in Hull's race.

Illawarra veteran Ryan Gregson failed to progress to the semis in the men's after finishing 11th in his heat.
