Hi Everyone, Just seen the results of the W55 Triple Jump at the European Masters Indoors in Madrid and am delighted to report that Janice Pryce (in her last year in this age group ) took the silver medal with a jump of 9.65m .This is a new British Indoor record beating the old record of 9.43m set by Teresa Eades in 2014 and of course this is a new Club record.Janice now holds both  the British outdoors record (9.75m) and the Indoors record.

On the last day Champs Donald Brown, running the lead off leg for the Great Britain M50 4x200m relay team, came away with a bronze medal when taking third place behind Italy and France. The time set by Italy was a new European record. Earlier in the week Donald Brown made it through to the semi finals of the 60m and 60m Hurdles but just missed out on a place in both Finals. His 60m Hurdles meeting record set in Turin in 2015 still remains as the meeting record.

Well done Janice and Donald.
