There was 'dancing on the dais' for the K&P competitors at the BMAF Championships at Birmingham's Alexander Stadium over the weekend of 28th/29th July.
(Apologies for the naff headers - could not resist trying to outnaff some of the irritatingly naff headlines in AW & on the UKA website recently!!)
Camilla Thrush's successful return from injury continued with triple W35 gold - SP 10.14/HT 36.69/WT 11.46 - though it was her competitive 33.52 discus silver which,apparently, gave the most pleasure.
Our men-in-the-sprints mirrored Camilla's exploits - Pat Logan confirmed his rich vein of form,taking both M45 100&200 comprehensively in 11.54&23.40(Club Vets record) after heat wins;Mike May,sadly,was the only non-medalist but would have been happyish with a season's best at 100(13.36);Chuck Isetts,recently moving into his new M65 group,took the 200 in style(28.08) and was a tad unlucky not to have taken the 100 as well as the Electronic Timing/Photofinish malfunctioned and he was given 2nd in a manual 13.8 when others reckoned he got the nod;and,not least,evergreen Charlie Williams came out,as he has done for 30 competitive years in the Vets ranks,and added another British Record to his collection,takng the M75 400 in a fine 69.51.
