“Saturday 3rd January saw a good start to the year in terms of club records when Samantha Coleby set a new 800 time of 2:12.61 at the Comsport Open meeting at the EIS, Sheffield.
This replaced the previous record of 2:12.78 which was set by Seonaid Murray at Bedford in the British Universities Championship of 2006.
It is worth noting that both of the above performances were electronic timings – which UKA rules require for record purposes.
However, it is worth noting that Chloe Price has a hand timed performance of 2:12.4 (Jarrow, North East Track League, 2013). Chloe’s fastest electronic timed 800m performance is 2:14.92 (Bedford, English U/20 Championships, 2013).”
