Sussex best for Phoenix at West London

Brighton Phoenix set a Sussex best at the South of England cross-country relay championships at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday with a fine fifth place.

Sussex participation in this event has never been very strong and for many years no Sussex club has travelled to the event.

Phoenix, who missed the County event the previous weekend, made an excellent showing at the West London course.

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.

Four golds amongst Masters medal haul at Malaga

The World Masters Championships are held every two years and the event brought together over 8000 athletes from 101 countries across five continents, to compete in four stadiums in five-year age bands from age 35.  Despite the use of multiple stadiums, the atmosphere and crowds were very motivational for all taking part.
