Saturday 29 August 2015

Katie Palfreeman produced a brilliant performance to take the bronze medal and run a new pb in the final of the U17W 3k on the opening day of the England Athletics championships.

Katie was rewarded with the bronze and a new pb of 9:54.44 with Niamh Brown (Aldershot) taking the silver in 9:54.39.

Cameron Bell successfully negotiated the heats of the U17M 800m. Having led his heat through most of the race, Cameron took the third automatic qualifying spot with a time of 1:57.62 for a place in the final on day 2.
