Sprinters Operating at Pace

Leon REID (coach: James Hiller) shot up rankings to second in the under-20 men over 200 metres with a win in Belgium in a new personal best of 21.23 (into a -0.2 wind) having already represented GB under-20 4x100m at the Bedford International clearly if Leon continues his form he’s sure to secure a spot on the GB team at this years the under-20 European Championships.

There was an easy win for Omar SIMPSON (Dan Cousins) who clocked another personal best of a time 47.43 over the 400 metres also in Belgium – it shouldn’t be too long before he breaks the 47second mark. Omar is up to 21st on the Power of 10 rankings.

Also congratulations to Alyssa SMALL (Lloyd Rice), Greg SMITH (Lloyd Rice) who have been invited to compete in their first international competition in Ireland along with Leon REID (James Hiller) on 25th June. We will let you know how they get on.
