CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Fresh off an impressive freshman campaign with Harvard, rising sophomore Will Battershill competed at the European Athletics U20 Championships held in Grosseto, Italy this past weekend (July 21-23).
Battershill, a native of Devon, United Kingdom, qualified for the 3000m steeplechase final with the third fastest time of the day (9:07.97) on Friday, but was unable to compete in the final on Sunday due to injury.
Competing for Harvard in the spring, Battershill qualified for the NCAA East Preliminary meet in the same event after a podium finish at the Ivy League Outdoor Heptagonal Championships (5th). He set a new personal record in the event, finishing third at IC4A Championships (8:55.84), the third fastest time in school history.
