Hayley and Clare are British Masters Champs!

Two golds, a silver and a bronze at British Championships

It was a great weekend of performances at the Alexander Stadium for five of our athletes in the British Masters Championships.

Hayley Cargill, returning after a long break, scorched round her final lap in the 800 to take the W35 title in 2:25.07 off a first lap pace that would have looked casual in a 1500.

Clare Ridd matched this with a 1.55m PB  to take the W35 High Jump title, improving her masters record and inching ever closer to the overall club record.

Joe Eastwood showed his consistency and class in the M65 javelin, throwing 31.47m to take silver in this event.

Martin Willis fought his way around a 3000m steeplechase to collect a well deserved bronze medal, as well as throwing 8.06m in the shot put for 6th place.

Debbie Singleton was also in action, competing in the W60 heavy hammer and hammer throws, coming 6th in both events including a PB of 9.48 in the heavy.

Congratulations to all on an exceptional weekend’s work!
