Lee Emanuel powers home to take the 3000m title at the UK Athletic Indoors Championships

Performance of the day one (puely personal opinion here) at the UK Indoor Athletics Championships today at the EIS Sheffield was Lee Emanuel.  The Sheffield & Dearne athlete (coach - Joe Franklin)) notched up his second indoor 3,000m title and a seat on the plane to Portland after taking to the front with just over one lap to go.

The 2015 European Indoor silver medallist was delighted with his win, saluting his home crowd 'Steve Ovett' style as he cruised home to gold in a season’s best 7:55.61 ahead of 5000m British outdoor champion Tom Farrell.
