Bryan Hawkins and Mark Burgess

It is with great regret that we have to announce the deaths of two stalwarts of Sussex athleties. International race walker Bryan Hawkins was based in Middlesex before moving to Sussex in the late fifties. He already had a stream of Middlesex walking titles, several Southern and an Inter-county crown as well as placing fifth in the European 10,000m track walking title at Berne in 1954. Once established as a Sussex walker with the then Brighton Athletic Club, he added many Sussex titles including the 2-mile track walking championship record.
