Danny Eckersley also had a good weekend,qualifying over 800(1.57.3),and then placing 4th in a SF in 1.55.69,very close to his alltime PB, whilst Draco Mkpa,in his last M35 season,ran a nippy 24.14 over 200.
The attempt at the same meeting by a British M45 4 x 100 squad,includng our President Pat Logan, to improve the UK standard was half a second short,though a National M35 team did break the world mark.

13th - UK Champs D2 - Dominique Blaize duly won the UK crown with a fine 6m25 effort but had to play 2nd fiddle to Eire's Kelly Proper who took the competiton with 6m35. Although UK Champion,with the European Champs standard at 6m40,sadly,she is unlikely to be selected.

19th/20th - Sheffield - BUCS Champs - Chris Hall was well pleased to run PBs twice in the 200,off some recent hamstring trouble,too - 22.53(2ht) and 22.50(4sf). He also qualified for the LJ Final(6.48) but this clashed with his 200s.
19th - Alton Towers - National CC Champs - On a total morass of a course,on which all 8 scheduled races had to be shortened after 12 hours continuous rainfall,a total of 1302 Seniors completed,and K&P's Richard Mathie(383rd 45.34) and Ant Budarkiewicz(591st 48.54) deserve our highest praise for their determined performances in the wilderness of Staffordshire.
