Oliver Hoare Wins 1,500m Gold for Australia at Commonwealth Games

Australia’s Oliver Hoare storms home to claim a stunning victory in the men’s 1500m final at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

Hoa was fourth at the top of the final straight but won in 3:30.12, overtaking 2019 World Champion Timothy Cheruiyot of Kenya by 0.09.

Reigning World Champion Jake Wightman (Scotland) was third, with the first seven runners all breaking event records.

It was an amazing turnaround for Hoare, who had failed to reach the finals at the World Championships just two weeks earlier.

Hoare’s victory gave Australia victory in a mixed session at Alexander Stadium.
