John Topliss reports on a successful weekend at the British Masters Championships:
“Royal Sutton athletes were among the medals at the British Masters Championships. Fiona Ellis took the silver medal in the W35 100m in a new club record time of 13.06 (Sandra set the old record of 13.1 in 1998). She followed this up with a bronze in the 200m with a seasons best of 27.85. (Incidentally Fiona holds the club Under 13 100m record of 12.8. I have told Fiona she will have to keep working hard if she wants to break Maureen’s W50 record of 13.0!!).
Lorna Foster was just 1cm away from the bronze medal in taking 4th place in the W50 Shot with a new club record of 9.63m.(Maureen set the old record in 1999). She was 5th in the Discus with a PB, 4th in the Javelin and 10th in the Hammer.
Jhalman Singh also set a new club record of 3.25 in taking the bronze medal in the M75 Long Jump (Bill Morrow set the old record in 2004). He also won another bronze medal in the Shot put with 7.85m
Paul Thompson put in another fine run in taking 6th place in the M40 800m in a large field but unfortunately his training partner Rob Andrew was not able to finish his M50 1500m due to injury. An event I would fully expected him to have won based on his early seasons times. Lets hope he is able to get it sorted out.
David Price also just missed out on the bronze in taking fourth place in the M70 javelin. His distance of 30.33m was not far off his club record. More practise in those fields of yours David! By the way those of you who do not know David makes a round trip of about 300 miles to compete for the club. Well done everyone”
