Michelle at the Finchley 20

A very successful Saturday at the Surrey Indoor Championships saw four of Walton’s senior athletes compete and bring home five medals.

Helen Williams led the way with two medals,  winning the long jump with 5.51m and coming 2nd in the 60m sprint with a time of 7.90s. Jo Regan achieved what we think is a pb, since she entered the masters ranks, of 4.76 to pick up the long jump silver medal.

Walton had another winner in Adam McCarthy, who claimed the 60m hurdles title in 11.48s. Adam also ran 7.69 for 3rd place in his heat of the 60m sprint, failing to progress beyond the heat by only nine hundredths of a second.

Last , but certainly not least, was Craig Timmings in the pole vault. Craig vaulted 4.00m, for the second time in his life, equalling his outdoor pb and claiming a new indoor pb and also the silver medal.

Congratulations to all four.

Andrew at the Masters Indoors

Andrew Kennard travelled to Cardiff last weekend for his first competition as a 40 year old, entering three events in the British Masters Indoor Championship.

He was fairly pleased with the results of his first masters outing, given his lack of competition over the last couple of years and he’s hoping to build on them and have a succcessful summer on the track.

Andrew ran 55.94 in the heat of the 400m, finishing 5th fastest overall and just missing a place in the final. He then went overdistance with a run in the 800m, recording 2.13.49 for 8th place in the final and rounded off the weekend by showing his versatility with a long jump of 5.16 for 5th place.
