Midland Masters Championship, 10/6/12

At the Midlands Masters Championships in Nuneaton Jane Horder set two over 50 championship records as she claimed two gold medals. The world indoor 60m hurdles champion won the 200m in 29.1 seconds and the 80m hurdles with an impressive 13.4 clocking that was faster than the current British record for the age group. Unfortunately though, hand timed performances are not eligible for records. Horder clearly looks set for a record breaking summer when she races with electronic timing as her hand timed 300m hurdles of 49.4 at the previous weekend’s Brewer Games was just three tenths of a second outside the world record and two seconds below the European record. In Nuneaton there was also medal success for vet 60 sprinter John Steel who claimed gold in the 100m in a season’s best time of 14.2 and finished second in the 200m with a 29.3 clocking.
