Eilish gets closer to mother Liz`s record in California

Eilish McColgan set a new personal best in California

Eilish McColgan just fell short of her mother's Scottish record with a new personal best in The Ten 10,000m race - but met the Olympic qualifying mark.

McColgan was third in 30 minutes 58.94 seconds, behind Americans Elise Cranny and Karissa Schweizer in California.

She now has the second-best time for a Scot, with Liz McColgan's 1991 time of 30:57.07 still the record. The 30-year-old's run was almost 30 seconds under the time set by British Athletics for participation in Tokyo.

The British record is the 30:01.09 set by Paula Radcliffe in August 2002.

Meanwhile, at the same meet, Marc Scott went second on the UK all-time list over 10,000m behind Mo Farah. His time of 27:10.41 was also a Tokyo qualifying standard.
