Athletics: Geordie Beamish adds to New Zealand's golden day at World Indoor Championships with 1500m victory

Geordie Beamish has delivered New Zealand's second gold medal of the day at the World Indoor Athletics Championships in Glasgow, winning the men's 1500m title.

Just hours after high jumper Hamish Kerr claimed the men's high jump gold, Beamish added another Kiwi triumph at the meet, with a final lap surge to the finish line in a time of 3m 36.54s.

Sitting 10th at the halfway point, Beamish produced a late charge that saw him overtake American duo Cole Hocker and Walker Kessler, and achieve the biggest win of his career.

Beamish's triumph is New Zealand's fourth medal of the games, to go with Kerr's gold, and a silver apiece from Eliza McCartney and Tom Walsh in the pole vault and shot put respectively.

The win also moves New Zealand to third on the medal table, with the two golds and two silvers leapfrogging the Netherlands, who have won two golds, one silver and two bronzes so far.

Only USA (six golds, nine silvers, five bronzes) and Belgium (three golds, one bronze) are ahead of New Zealand on the medal table.
