Posted: March 8, 2020 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Last weekend M55 Donald Brown continued his excellent indoor season by taking first place in both the M50 60m and the M50 60m Hurdles whilst representing Midland Masters at the Inter Area Challenge at Lee Valley. Donald also took third place in the M50 Shot. The meeting was won by the Midlands.

Donald’s 60m Hurdles time of 8.94 is a new M55 CLUB RECORD beating his previous time of 9.02 set in 2019. He also set a new M55 CLUB RECORD in the 6Kg Shot with 10.71m beating Graham Felton’s record of 9.85 set in 2004.

Last Sunday was the regional sportshall final.

Very well done to the following RSC athletes who were selected to represent Birmingham:

There were some great results! The u11 boys team, u11 girls team and u13 boys team all won. The u13 boys have now qualified for the national final!

The u13 girls, u15 boys and under 15 girls all came second.

In the u15s, there were individual victories for Gabby Godsell and Charlotte Prince in the 4 lap and Gabby Godsell and Tilly Strachen in the paarlauf relay. Noah Edwards got bronze in the 4 lap.

There were medals in the u13 boys for Jayden Humphreys in speed bounce; Harrison North in 2 lap; and Alfie Hall in the obstacle relay and 4 x 2 lap relay.

There is a chance that some award winners have been missed from the above. Apologies if so – there was so much going on it was hard to keep up!

This beats the previous Club record of 7.60 jointly held by Ron Taylor (1990) and Donald (2019) himself.
