id1699-Great Result for Phoebe Law at Milton Keynes Cross Challenge

Written by DBl   

European Cross Country team gold medallist Phoebe Law (Richard Holt) showed her class as she won the U20 women’s race.

The Kingston AC & Poly athlete bided her time on the opening lap but went with the first significant move of the race as Bronwen Owen (Andrew Henderson), second in Cardiff, opened up a lead. However, Law quickly shut the move down and raced away to claim a Cross Challenge win after second place in Liverpool last November.

Law commented: “It was amazing today – I don’t usually win races so it’s nice to do it here. I’ve been ill this week but I’ve still managed to do my sessions but I’ve just been very slow and sluggish. I wanted to see what the pace was like on the first lap and decide from there what to do. I just gave it everything in that final stretch.

On Euro Cross team gold medal: “It gives you confidence because when you are warming up you are thinking, come on, you’ve represented GB, and if I can run in Bulgaria I can run anywhere.”
