Edinburgh AC / Loughborough
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 Kenya'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 where he made the semi-finals of the 1500m.
Jake rounded out a hugely successful 2018 by taking bronze in the 1500m at the European Championships in Berlin. 2019 saw him make the final of the 1500m at the World Championships, finishing 5th, while in 2020 he followed up with a Scottish record of 3:29.47 at the Monaco Diamond League. A second place finish behind Edinburgh AC clubmate Josh Kerr in a thrilling Olympic Trials race saw him claim his place at Tokyo 2020 where he made the 1500m final, finishing 10th.
He comes into Birmingham 2022 as the World Champion over 1500m after a stunning win in Oregon.
