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.”

Another Busy Weekend.

Following last weekend’s successful County championships where twelve Championships Best Performances were set and it looks like 39 English Schools Standards were achieved, it is back to League athletics this weekend and the Loughborough International meeting.

The Loughborough match is on Sunday and Sussex have two athletes in the GB Junior team as well as several athletes in invitation events.

Five victories for Crawley at Yeovil

Despite losing many of their top athletes to the BUCS on Saturday the Crawley team did well to avoid the relegation area in the first of this season’s British Athletics League matches at Yeovil.

In what was a very tight Division two match just 70 points separated the top seven teams with Bournemouth winning with 322 points from Havering’s 303 with Crawley finishing just ten points adrift of Kent’s fifth place on 272 points and Crawley placing sixth ahead of Glasgow and Rugby.
