World Masters Indoors

Posted: March 28, 2014 by RSCAC in Race reports

Great performances by Fred Tremblay and Donald Brown at the World Masters Indoor Athletics Championships in Budapest. Fred ran a fantastic time of 1.57 to finish 6th in the final of the M35 800m. The race was won by GB athlete James Thie in a time of 1.53. Video of the final from Paul Osland is here.

Donald Brown ran close to his club record to reach the final of the 60m hurdles. His time of 8.88 was close to a PB and apparently was achieved despite having a cracked rib put back in place earlier in the week!!! Donald also put in a great performance in the 60m where he ran 7.78 in the semi’s.

Well done guys!
