ENGLAND ATHLETICS U23 & U20 CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013 EUROPEAN TRIALS

Bedford Stadium

Saturday/Sunday 15-16th June 2013

 

Grant Plenderleith performed well at his first British Championships to lower his 400m PB to 47.90 secs winning the bronze medal. I believe this will be the VIC’s first male medal in these championships as they are relatively new. They have probably only been going about 10 years but never the less a fantastic achievement and moves him to No 3 in the Scottish Rankings this year. Grant won his heat on the Saturday and was third quickest qualifier for the final.

Myra Perkins was also competing in a very high quality Under 23 ladies hammer and finished 4th after a 5th round effort of 56m 04 cm with the event won by Sophie Hitchin the current British No 1 who was 12th in last year’s London Olympics!
