Throwback Thursday: Gabrielle Wilkinson Breaks 1500m Meet Record

By Cory Mull, MileSplit

Friends Central (Pa.) High's Gabrielle Wilkinson, running for a Philadelphia-based track club, was out for a big performance at the AAU Junior Olympic Games in 2016.

Wilkinson took out the pace in the girls 17-18 division 1500m from the gun and never let up, closing in a 70 second last lap to post a meet record of 4:25.04. She surpassed a record that held for 24 years, eclipsing Becki Well's 4:28.95 effort in 1992.
