HANNAH England said she was satisfied with her seventh-place finish in Birmingham yesterday, despite being out of her comfort zone.

The Oxford City athlete, who reached the finals of the Commonwealth Games and European Championship 1500m events, was running over the shorter 800m distance.

And although she was well behind race winner Lynsey Sharp, England was happy.

“I was really hurting with 300m left as I am not used to going through at that pace, but I am glad I gave it a go,” she said.
