and Under 23 athlete Scott Beattie, currently studying in Tulsa, America, both facing the starter.
In an event won by Scotland’s Sol Sweeney, who posted a finishing time of 8m06.90s, Leonard finished tenth in 8,18.80s, with Beattie coming home in twelfth place, posting a finishing time of 8m26.24s.
This represented a new personal best for Leonard, who took approximately six seconds off his previous best for the distance, which he had set in a BMC event in Leeds at the end of April.
It was also a new personal best for Beattie, taking around two seconds off his previous figures,
set at Stretford in August 2016.
