Euro Standard for Rodger - - Bronze for Evans

Sebastian Rodger from Eastbourne made a cracking start to his track season at the Loughborough International meeting on Sunday in the 400 metres hurdles.

In recent seasons Rodger has been chasing the standard for major championships until well into the season but with a fluid run in good conditions on Sunday the Eastbourne runner hit the “European Standard” with an impressive 49.80s.

Rodger said “It’s nice to run sub 50 seconds, I know it should be normal, but to achieve the European Standard so early in the season makes me very happy.”

Olympian at Steyning-London Games

Double Hungarian Olympian Gyula Dudas made his debut on the Sussex Race walking scene at the weekend when he finished second in the Steyning Athletic Club’s “Open” 15km road walk.

Dudas who raced in both the 2000 and 2004 Olympics has been living in Brighton for the past decade and his walking has been restricted to training and walking the Brighton Marathon for the past two years.

He met his match however in the person of super vet Ian Richards M65 who has been ruling the roost in Sussex for several years.
