The provisional results are now available for the third Midland Athletics League fixture (click here) and they show that Royal Sutton recorded a win in an incredibly close match.
Everyone competed superbly in blistering hot temperatures. Highlights included Lorna Foster setting a new W50 club record in the shot putt of 8.63m (4kg shot), and Rob Andrew (on his first run for the club) getting into the top 3 in the British rankings with his time of 4.20.9 in the 1500m. Nicholas Pryce was just one tenth of a second off his club records in the 100m and 200m, which shows he is in great form ahead of the UK Trials this weekend. Also, the women’s 4x100m team of Joella, Charmaine, Fiona and Kanisha came close to the club record which was set over 30 years ago.
Special thanks as always to all our match officials – We really appreciate your time and support!
The result moves us up to third place in the league with the final match to come at home on 10 August. Let’s have a great turnout – absolutely no excuses!
