Golden Girl Kimbeley

A brilliant gold medal for Kimbeley Baptiste was the one of just two medallists for Sussex at the combined English and CAU championships at Bedford over the weekend.

The Crawley sprinter has certainly struck a purple patch and after a fine fifth place in the 100 metres on Saturday in 11.70s she tackled the 200m, where she seems to be in her element. There Baptiste eased to an impressive victory in her heat on Sunday in a nippy 23.88s.
