Australian Oliver Hoare has entered home to claim a remarkable victory in the men’s 1500m final at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

Hoare was fourth straight on top of the final to win in three minutes and 30.12 seconds, lined up to beat 2019 world champion Timothy Cheruiyot of Kenya by 0.09.

Defending world champion Jake Wightman of Scotland was third, with the first seven runners breaking the all-game record.

It was a remarkable turnaround for Hoare, who had failed to make the final at the World Championships only two weeks earlier.

Hoare’s victory provided Australia with a winning end to the mixed season at the Alexander Stadium.
