Amazing symmetry thrown up by Joseph Deng in a sensational 800m PB run in Szekesfehervar Hungary on 3 July in stopping the clock at 1:47.06. A time run twice by Simon Lewin (Finland in again in Australia) and for many many years the SKAAC Club Record. Joseph’s race contained no less than the world record holder David Rudisha!!
Joseph has backed up a super run on the weekend as pacemaker (400m of 800m) for Peter Bol’s successful London World Championships qualifying time and new PB of 1:45.21.
Joseph now finds himself sitting alongside SKAAC Legend and Life Member Simon Lewin and Atlanta Olympian Paul Cleary in on the Australian All-Time list.
An amazing week for Joseph, Peter, JR and the SKAAC Community.
Keep up the good work – all at SKAAC are right behind all of our athletes that are overseas at the moment, doing so well.
