British Masters Championship, 25-26 July

There were gold medals for Martin Ford, Michael Gardiner and Jane Horder at the British Masters Championships in Birmingham. In very blustery conditions on Saturday Gardiner won the M45 400m in 52.64 seconds and Jane Horder picked up the W55 300 hurdles title with a 50.80 clocking as both athletes made their final preparations for the August’s World Masters Championships in Lyon. Ford meanwhile took silver in the M70 1500m in 5:24.79 before returning on Sunday to win the 5000m for his age group in 20:06.47 and then claiming another silver medal in the 800m in 2:46.40.
