Andrew Thomas took gold in the M40 Discus at the British Masters Champs in Birmingham. He needed to nudge his PB up a few more centimetres to do it, but is still chasing his training best at more than a metre further. Perhaps as a youngster of 43 in his first competitive season for 25 years, he can be excused a few nerves on the big stage! Brilliant throwing , Andrew.
Dave Bedwell also struck gold - twice - in the M60 age group with perfectly executed races in the 800 metres which he won in 2:20.23 (to win by .26 of a second in a season's best) and in the 1,500 metres which he won in 4:53.61 (this time just over a second clear).
