Jake went one better than his fourth place finish in the 800m to bag a brilliant 1500m bronze on the final night of track and field at Gold Coast 2018. He made his move down the back straight and chased down Kenyan’s Elijah Manangoi and Timothy Cheruiyot, who finished one-two at the 2017 World Championships, to take bronze.
He was in fantastic form through 2017, taking Diamond League victories over 1500m in Oslo and the mile in Birmingham, followed by selection for the World Championships in London were he made the semi-finals of the 1500m.
