A set of medals at weekend's National Championships

Thanks very much to Martin Etchells who had a very busy weekend as Meeting Director for the Sussex Indoor championships and then produced reports while I was sans computer for several days.

There were few medals for Sussex athletes at the weekend’s National Indoor championships at Birmingham and the BUCS Championships at Sheffield.

Just one gold medal and that fell to County 400m hurdles record holder Bethany Close who forsook the hurdles and raced to a clear cut 200m victory in 24.35s.

Indoor Championships Update

On further scrutiny of the results from weekend Indoor Championships, another Championship Best has been identified. It came in the last event of the weekend, the Under 17 men's Triple Jump, where Brighton's Louis Goffin exceeded the old record (12.26) in each of his four valid jumps. The first of these was his best at 12.75 - just 1 cm below his pb. That makes 10 new names from the two days of competition to be added to the list of CBP's.

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.
