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.”

Entries Up Again for this weekend's Sussex Championships.

Entrants for this weekend’s Sussex Track & Field championships at the K2 Leisure centre at Crawley are up for the sixth successive year.

For, what it is believed is the first time more than 1000 entries have been received from 640 athletes. However the increase is in the young athlete’s age groups as there is still a general trend amongst senior athletes to give the championships a miss.

Tremendous results for Sussex at Loughborough

A tremendous day for Sussex, at the Inter-counties cross country championships at Prestwold Hall in Loughborough, on Saturday saw one gold medal for Bethany Cook and four Top Ten team places.

Both the U17 teams finished a splendid fifth place, the senior men a remarkable seventh and the U15 girls filled ninth place  - all significant team performances.

The course was really tough with mud that Dave Leach, the men’s team manager, described as, “the worst I’ve seen this century”.
