Mekhissi earns golden redemption


ZURICH: French athletics bad boy Mahiedine Mekhissi managed to keep his vest on as he completed a show-stealing redemption run with victory in the men’s 1500m finals on the closing day of the European Athletics Championships in Zurich on Sunday (Monday in Manila). Three days after he was stripped of the gold from the 3,000m steeplechase finals after removing his singlet in the home straight, the 27-year-old produced a stunning last lap to claim the 1500m title.
