Please find the below results of the League Cup Finals at Stoke yesterday. Our small team of Andrea, Sandra, Fiona, Lorna, Richard, Graham, Paul, Ed, David, Kevin and yours truly put in some great performances with quite a few pbs and two new club records from Graham. We ended up in third place in the C Cup Final although a few of the performances would have won the A Final and several would have finished in the first three.
Ed competed in 5 events which he says is good preparation for the British Masters Decathlon which he competes in at Alexander Stadium on Sept 20/21st for which we all wish him a great competition. We will all be cheering for you!
It was great to see Sandra competing again after 2 years absence.
Paul had us all shouting out for him in the Combined Finals M40 1500m . Fifteen meters down from the first two at the bell he went storming past them at 200 meters and just kept going away from them. What a run! I am told it compares to my lead off leg of the 4x100m relay. Seriously it was great to be running again.
Kevins victory in the M35 Discus was an inspiration to us all as he has two slipped discs and today is in hospital for a procedure to ease the problem. Very shortly Kevin moves into the M50 age group when the Discus drops down to 1.5Kg. New club records beckon.
- High Jump 1.10m (replacing Jhalmans 1.04 set in 2004)
- Hammer (5kg) 23.27m ( replacing his record of 22.73 set earlier this year)
