Caroline Powell’s Treble Gold and Dave Bedwell’s Double Silver

Running in the British Masters Indoor Chmapionships at Lee Valley on Saturday 17th March 2012 Caroline Powell won three gold medals in her age group. A PB 8.81 saw her win the 60 metres, a season’s best of 28.63 was good enough to take the 200 metre title while 62.87 saw her win her speciality event the 400 metres. Well done Caroline. Dave Bedwell had to be content with second in both the 800 and 1,500 metres with a 2.20.75 clocking in the shorter distance and 4.38.59 in the longer race. As he thought he was in 4.45 shape I am sure he will be pleased with his sub-4.40 clocking in the 1,500 metres.

At the same meeting Nick Rose suffered his first defeat in the M60 category in a very close finish over 3,000 metres with David Oxland clocking 10.08.41 to Nick’s 10.08.92 as the pair finished over 30 seconds clear of the thrid placed runner.
