Another GB callup for NIcholls

A great run from Nicholls in the National Road Relays (25.39 long leg) and another one in last weekends Manchester 10k in difficult conditions has earned Phil a call up to represent Great Britain in the European Challenge 10,000m held in Madeira, Portugal on June 6th.  Phil Wicks of Belgrave is the only other athlete selected.

Nicholls was a little dissapointed with his time at Manchester 10k (29.21) espescially having cruised through the first 5k in 14.07!  But running into the wind in the 2nd half took its toll.  In typical Nicholls fashion he didnt sit behind anyone and had 27.57 10k runner Andrew Lemoncello sitting on his shoulder the whole way, who outkicked him the last 100 metres.  Nicholls is clearly in sub 29min shape and hence has been rewarded with the call up.
