A Club Record and a National Champion Indoors

03 Feb

Two significant results from abroad that were missed from our reports last week were as follows:

Silvia AMABILINO became the Luxembourg National Indoor Champion in the Pole Vault with a superb clearance of 3 metres 70 centimetres.  Silvia obviously travelled back to her home base to compete in these Championships and made the journey all worthwhile with her first National victory.

UK Under-23 International Bethan KNIGHTS smashed the Club Indoor 5,000 metre record held previously at 16:24.70 set by her near namesake Holly KNIGHT in 2012 with a scintillating run of 15:45.94.  Bethan ran this time in Seattle WA USA where she is at present at University.
