A near miss for Grice in Berlin

Charlie De’Vall Grice (Phoenix) just missed a medal in an exciting 1500m final at the European Games in Berlin last night.

Having qualified comfortably behind Edinburgh’s Chris O’Hare on the Wednesday, Grice ran a sensible race and was always in contention.

Amazingly the talented 17-year-old Norwegian, Jakob Ingebrigtsen, the youngest of the three siblings who had all made the final, led by the half way point and instead of his elder brothers pulling through to win, he kept his nose in front to take the title in 3:38.10s.

Double Gold for Baptiste at Manchester

Crawley’s Kim Baptiste achieved a double gold medal in the English Championships, which incorporated the Inter-county Championships, at a wet and windy Manchester over the weekend.

The Crawley sprinter is certainly enjoying a purple patch at the moment and were it not for excessive winds she would have again improved the Sussex 100m record.

Baptiste eased through her 100 and 200 metres heats before cruising to impressive wins clocking a windy 11.35s for the 100 metres title and 23.40s for the 200 metre crown.

European Games and the Weekend.

Sussex athletes Sebastian Rodger and Charlie Da’Vall Grice have both been included in the in the United Kingdom team for the European Games in Berlin next month.

Rodger, from Eastbourne, takes the third place in the 400m hurdles while Grice (Brighton Phoenix) also takes the third spot in the 1500m.

At their best both could find themselves of the final.

Sussex domiciled Jade Lally from Broadbridge Heath leads the British Women’s discus line up.
