Katie and Donald both win bronze

Posted: August 1, 2017 by RSCAC in Race reports

Here’s the latest update from John T on some great performances by Katie, Donald and Shem:

Katie Ingle took the bronze medal in the 3K Steeplechase at Bedford today in the England Senior Champs in a time of 10.10.73 which is Katie’s second best ever time.
Donald Brown took the bronze medal in the M50 100m at Aarhus (Denmark) today at the European Masters in a time of 12.12 . He ran marginally faster times in his heat (12.05) and semi final (12.06).

Shem Nelson took third place in the 400m A race at the Cheltenham Open on Wednesday in a time of 51.7.

Muninder at the worldsHere’s Graham’s report of Muninder’s fantastic trip to Denmark:

Royal Sutton Coldfield athlete Muninder Singh Hayer won 5 medals at the Racerunning World Championships in Denmark. In the 100 metres he made a poor start but came through to win Bronze Medal. At 400 metres he knocked 12 seconds off his PB and won Silver and in doing so beat the previous World Record, now one of only 2 athletes to go sub 2 minutes. At 800 metres a 17 second PB and won Silver, beating the old World Record. In both the 400 and 800m he was beaten by Henrick Errikson from Sweden, if you have to lose to someone then Henrick is the man, a true friend and a great athlete, well done Henrick. In the 200 metres Muninder set a World Record of 52.19 seconds in the heats and then won gold in the final in another World Record of 52 00 seconds. In the 60 metres Muninder won Gold in a new PB. So to summarise: 5 events, 5 medals, 2 Gold, 2 Silver, 1 Bronze. 4 PB’s and 4 World Records. Coach Graham Felton said I’ll settle for that but he is disappointed about the 100m which he knows should have been Gold, that’s the mark of a true champion. So proud of you.
