Despite dreadful weather, Vale athletes have been in competition both indoor and outdoor over the past few weeks.
Andy Rolt represented the Southern County in a Vets Inter-area indoor match held at Lee Valley; the last indoor event of the season.
He won his M35-49 1,500m in 4:33.50 in what was an interesting race tactically – the second half was approximately 9.5 seconds faster than the first! Back at Lee Valley this weekend for their outdoor Open Event and Ethan Luck had a great day. He reported conditions as very windy, but still managed another PB of about two seconds in the 800m, though at the time of writing the official results are still to be published. His day finished perfectly with a chance meeting and photo opportunity with Sally Gunnell, Olympic gold medallist at 400m hurdles.
