K&P athletes were involved in 'fun' & 'games' in Austria at the World Masters Indoor Championships.
Camilla Thrush justified her trip into the Alps with a Gold medal in the W35 Weight,edging home late on with a 12m.67 throw in a largish field. In the SP,an indoor PB of 11.04 gave her 9th whilst,outdoors in 9 inches of the white stuff,2 identical 34.12 throws saw her 6th & 7th in the Discus & Hammer - the WMA put on these events to attract the throwers who might otherwise not travel round the world just for SP & Weight.
On the track meanwhile,Pat Logan continued where he left off in San Sebastian,running lifetime PBs all over the place - he ran 7.35/7.37 & then 7.33 over M45 60m to snatch a bronze in a real tough field;in the 200 it was 23.91/24.11 and then 23.97 for 4th;and added a silver in the M45 4x200 for good measure.
Chuck Isetts ran 8.65/28.17 over 60/200 but was sadly denied a relay medal when the GB team were disqualified for taking over outside the box. Mike May ran a PB 200 of 27.00 plus an 8.63 60 but dislocated a shoulder in a fall - mind you,it did not stop him jetting off again to Melbourne to the Commonwealth Games!!
