Wednesday 30th July – Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

Ex-Otley AC member Racheal Bamford made her Commonwealth Games debut in the women’s 3,000m steeplechase finishing seventh in 9:45:51 to earn a well deserved PB. The winner was Purity cherotich Kirui of Kenya in 09:30.36.

Full results and the Telegraph & Argus still thinks Racheal is a Black & White. Shhh, don’t tell them! Here’s a newspaper race report (from Kenya – sadly nothing in the UK papers).

  1. Incredible performance. The girl has done well – 6 years ago I could beat her.
    Congratulations to Rachael.

  2. We were lucky enough to be there to watch Racheal race and she was magnificent. Kept her head, ran her own race and was closing down that Scottish lass! She did herself and her local town proud!

  3. Congratulation to Racheal B. for racing at the Commonwealth Games and I agree with Ursula that everyone in Otley is proud of her achievement to compete in such a major and global Championship . Well done indeed.
