Midland League, 9/6/13

Richard Tremblen claimed a sprint double and lowered his 200m personal best as Cheltenham Harriers finished sixth in their Midland League Division One match at Loughborough. The Cardiff Metropolitan University student knocked 0.28 seconds from his previous best, despite a headwind of 1.9 metres per second, to register a 21.63 winning time. Tremblen then went on to win the 100m in a time of 11.10 with the headwind now at 3.2 metres per second.

Annabel Sherry scored well in the throwing events as she won the shot with 12.35m, finished second in the discus with 30.09m and finished third in the hammer with 37.33m. Commonwealth Games javelin thrower James Campbell made a surprise appearance for the club. In the early stages of rehabilitation after surgery, and with a personal best in excess of 80m, the Scottish record holder was content to throw a controlled 57.57m to take the win and maximum points for the team.

In the 3000m Rhys Park was happy to sit in the pack until the 2k mark which he passed in six minutes before pulling clear of the field in the final kilometre to take the win in 8:54.55. In contrast Dan Owen left his opponents trailing from the early stages of the 3000m steeplechase which he won in a time of 9:47.41. Further good points from the men’s middle distance team came through James Miller placing second in the 1500m A race in 4:05.45 and Harry Mahoney taking third in the 800m A race in 2:00.04. There was also a third place in the women’s 100m hurdles for Emily Pascoe in a time of 15.43 seconds.
