World call-ups


NA­TIONAL record holder Ryan Greg­son is among three Aus­tralians to earn late callups for the ath­let­ics world cham­pi­onships be­gin­ning this month in Bei­jing.

The NSW run­ner broke the long­stand­ing Aus­tralian record with his time of 3min 31.06sec set five years ago in Monaco.

The other ad­di­tions to a team num­ber­ing 45 are Heidi See in the women’s 1500m and James Nip­per­ess in the 3000m steeplecha­se.

Fur­ther va­can­cies from the roll-down process meant Jeff Rise­ley was able to add the 1500m to his rac­ing pro­gram af­ter au­to­mat­i­cally qual­i­fy­ing for the 800m.
