VIS distance runner Jordan Williamsz is back on the winners list after he crossed the line first in the men’s mile at the 2019 Great Northern City Games in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK.
Williamsz pipped fellow Australian Ryan Gregson to win by a whisker, both recording times of 4.10.95. Sweden’s Suldan Hassan was third in 4.11.68.
The VIS scholarship holder took the victory for the third consecutive year - “Third time’s a charm” he said on his official Instagram page (@jordywilliamsz) after the race.
