Another Great show by Lisa
ASHFORD AC’s Lisa Dobriskey has had the season of her life and goes into a well earned rest after this weekend having retained her Great North Run mile title in storming fashion at the weekend. First, the Great Britain international returns to her home track on Sunday to start the Givaudan Ashford 10k road race and children’s races. Lisa followed up her Fifth Avenue Mile success a fortnight ago with victory in the Bupa Great North Mile on Tyneside. She had to overcome illness to retain her title on Saturday in a time of 4min37.8secs after staging a strong finish to see off the challenge of Ukrainian Anna Mischenko and Slovenian Sonia Roman. “I was planning to go for it from the beginning, but I had a cold so sat back and kept something in reserve,” said the Ashford middle distance runner. “When you are warming up sometimes you feel worse than you actually are, and I actually felt great in the race.” The former Southlands pupil has really come good this yearand established her international credentials post ed by her Commonwealth Games gold medal.
