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.
