In a very competitive final, Charlie finished closer to medal action than ever before as he was squeezed into 5th place at the European Championships. It was the home favourite Holusa who snatched the gold with a deadly final 200m sprint. On analysis of the race, Charlie made a few tactical errors and was forced wide on the last lap, being too far away from the action. However he still ran a new PB of 3:39.43 and a new Phoenix indoor record.
