Reid happy with 2019 season after 7th-placed finish in British final

Manx athlete believes he's put down "solid foundations" for 2020 campaign

Manx athlete Joe Reid says he's thoroughly enjoyed the 2019 season after reaching the men's 800m final at the British Athletics Championships.

Reid finished 7th in yesterday's race, having not made it out of the heats in the same event last year.

It caps a season that also saw the athlete claim the British indoor and England outdoor titles, while also taking almost 0.7s off his personal best.

Reacting on social media, Reid said he's happy with how the year has gone, and believes he's put down some solid foundations for 2020.
