But the accomplishment was even more impressive: With his time of 3:48.87, he not only broke the European mile record, set in 1983, he also set a British 1500m record en route to the finish line. Longines is delighted to announce that this talented runner is part of its Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team and looks forward to timing every breathtaking step in Birmingham. At home on the Commonwealth Games stage Josh Kerr has been distinguishing himself on middle-distance tracks since 2015, when he won gold at the European Junior Championships and he has moved from strength to strength, capturing a bronze medal in Tokyo in the summer of 2021 in a field that included the world’s best runners. While best known for his successes in 1500 metre and one-mile events, the Edinburgh native also competes at the 800-metre, 3000-metre and 5000 metre distances. Although Josh now trains in Seattle, Washington (USA), he is looking forward to representing Great Britain and Scotland at the World Championships and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

    Peter Bol, Australian 800-metre sensation, Joins the Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team

    Longines is excited to announce that Peter Bol, the brilliant Australian middle-distance runner, has joined its 2022 Commonwealth Games Team. A specialist in 800-metre races, Peter already holds the national record in this discipline and distinguished himself on the tracks in Rio and Tokyo. But his ambitions go far beyond what he has already accomplished. We’re pleased to introduce you to an extraordinary competitor.  Overcoming adversity Peter Bol has a bold ambition: he aims to become the greatest 800-metre runner in the world. And no one who has seen the new member of the Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team doubts that he can achieve that goal. Peter’s story is compelling. As a child, he relocated with his family from Sudan to Australia. At school in Perth, he was a standout basketball player but he was also required to participate in school athletics. He regularly won his races and was ultimately convinced by his teachers to swap his basketball kit for track shoes. He won the junior men’s 800-metre event in 2015 and never looked back. Peter looks forward to adding to his legacy – and continuing his relentless pursuit of his goal – in Birmingham in August. "Get to know the person instead of the assumptions" Peter Bol is one of those rare sporting talents who has lit a fire that burns beyond the track, field or arena of his achievements. His successes have fired the imaginations of his fellow Australians, who look forward to seeing what new barriers he breaks and what milestones he achieves next. Peter is articulate about what it means to have moved to a country and to be representing it on the world’s most prestigious sporting stages. He says, "I don't think people should be seen as a refugee or a migrant or something like that . . . get to know the person instead of the assumptions." Peter Bol has been defying stereotypes, overcoming obstacles and breaking records for years, a trend that continued at the Diamond League event in Paris in June, where he set a new personal best time of 1:44 in the 800-metre run, breaking his own Australian National Record. And the best is yet to come!
