Another Gold Medal for Richards

On a very good day for racing Ian Richards of Steyning, after his 3 Golds in Malaga, easily retained his Sussex Men’s 10,000m race walking title at Broadbridge Heath on Saturday, in 55:18.8s. Although in a slower time than last year, after receiving a couple of warnings early on in the race, he finished well clear of fellow 70 year old Paul Gaston (Surrey Walking Club) who clocked 67:59.1s.

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.
