Veteran Athletics League Meetings Update
Here are the men's and women's results from the 3rd May meeting, a bright evening with good competing conditions. Although in the event we had only four competitors in the men’s team, undertaking six out of 16 possible events, our positioning was still good enough to put us in fourth place overall in the division. So this is good news indeed!
We welcomed back Rob Peers as a Sevenoaks competitor after some years, which he celebrated with first place in the M35 pole vault (albeit an M45) with 2.40m, whilst David Simpson took second place in the M50 event with 1.35m, ranking him nationally at present as third in the M70s.
John Denyer took third place in the M50 3000m race with 11 minutes 38.3 seconds which, at this stage of the season, could be enough for a top ten national ranking, so John looks to be back in form. Many thanks also to John for juggling his race with joining Geoffrey Kitchener in officiating at the triple jump. Geoffrey’s commitments were finished in time for the last event of the evening, the 2km walk, where he won the M50 competition in 12 minutes 32.4 seconds.
Happy Fisher joined us as a guest runner in the women’s 3000m, achieving a PB in 14 minutes 12.2 seconds.
