The 2nd Midlands Counties Athletics Association open meeting saw some fine runs and PBs galore for the sprint squad. For Tyrique Grant Fagan and James Griffiths, both u 13 boys this was their major indoor competition. In the first round, the boys ran together and came 1st and 2n respectively in heat 2 of the 60 m sprint. Tyrique's time saw him placed in heat 1 of the second round and James in heat 2. Both boys improved on their first round times, achieving 9 seconds and 9.16 respectively. Fantastic runs from both boys and I am sure there is more to come. Cameron Harris (u 17 men 7.82 seconds) and Rachel Iliffe (u 20 women 8.54 seconds) both set new PBs. Kane Howitt (u 23 men) recorded a time of 7.19 seconds, a new PB and Nick Pryce 7.08 seconds in their first 60 m run of the season. A surprise was in store when Cameron and Rachel unexpectedly met Mo Farah making a flying visit to Birmingham. They both managed a signed photograph and Cameron a photo with the man himself. In case you are wondering, it is Cameron in the foreground!
