Will CHRISTOFI finished thirty-third in 23:58 on his Great Britain & Northern Ireland debut at the Euro-Cross in Chia, Sardinia on Sunday 11th December 2016. Will started at the back of the pen and made his trade mark cautious start but on a flat dusty course over several 1,500 metre laps there was never any real chance to move forward significantly in a field of that class in such fast conditions. However, he finished strongly as always to help the team to bronze medals in a race which saw UK’s Alex Yee, one of the pre-race favourites, pushed to the ground twice before finishing eleventh. Knowing Will he will have learned a lot from this experience and apply that knowledge in any future internationals he races.
