Rio Calling for Kajan After Personal Best Run

In other athletics news from overnight, Selma Kajan has clocked a personal best of 2:01.27 in Barcelona (ESP) to qualify for the women’s 800m at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Kajan’s result is reward for continued effort at the two-lap race, with her 2016 resume featuring thirteen starts at the distance, with many of those within striking distance of the 2:01.50 required for nomination for selection.

The result also ensures that Australia has at least one female athlete qualified in every track event at the Olympic Games for the first time since Sydney 2000.

Competing in the same race, Brittany McGowan ran 2:02.12, while Nicholas Hough clocked 13.59 (w: +0.9) in the men’s 110m hurdles for second.
