Archie Davis has clocked up some significant results over his various races to date, and as an Under-23 group competitor, he’s still only at the start of his running career.
While Davis has had injuries over previous seasons that have affected his performance, everything came together in 2019. He achieved a personal best in the 1500m, beating his previous time by 3 seconds, gaining a record and boosting his ranking to 23rd in the world for his age group. Other achievements included competing in his first Senior British Championship final and, despite being the youngest racer in the competition, finished 6th. Davis even found energy to spare to test himself in 5k and 10k road races.
2020 is a pivotal year for Davis, with ambitions to get spots on both the Olympic and European Championship teams.
