Birmingham Games – 4/5 February

Posted: February 5, 2012 by megsamaniac in Race reports

Well done to everyone who performed at the B’ham games at the NIA this weekend. Day 1 results are now available here. I’m sure it won’t be long before todays are up too. There was a notable win for Charlotte Newman in the 200m – her 1st ever indoor competition. Stefan flew as he always does around the 200m and the 60m. As did Luke Flemming in the 200m. Adam Barnes ran against Richard Buck, which is quite a claim, and I ran alongside an Olympic Champion! Can you believe it, I raced Christine Ohuruogu in the 60m. She came third…..I came last. But I enjoyed it, which is the main thing. I also got 3 no jumps in my long jump (all over 5m though, which is quite a positive). So all in all a good day! I wasn’t there today, but I know there were more Sutton athletes there again. Hopefully there have been even more good performances.

Next week it’s the Midlands indoor. Good luck to anyone who is competing. I’m leaving that one to the pros!

Update

Day 2 results are now available here with Nicholas Pryce and Kathryn Smith both in action.
