In Bydgoszcz (Poland) over the weekend Lucy BRYAN achieved a superb Bronze Medal in the Pole Vault matching her Club Record of 4.40 metres in the European Under-23 championships. After returning to the UK following a spell at an American University Lucy has turned in some great performances and set herself up for this performance with an easy third place 4.20 clearance in the earlier qualifying competition. Lucy who has been dogged with setbacks in the past few years was delighted with her medal and hopefully will move on to greater performances in the future.
Not to be outdone Bristol and West stalwart sprinter Chris STONE was a member of the Silver Medal winning 4×100 metres Relay Team in Bydgoszcz with the team running a remarkable 39.11 seconds in the Final. Well done Chris – yes it was all worthwhile in the end.
