Sue Phillips showed her class in the 1500m finishing 1st F55 in 2:57.0 breaking the Championship record while multi eventer Pauline finished 6th V55 in 3:40. Sue made it a double gold as she finished 1st in 12:21.3 in the 3000m. Sarah Johnson, who like Pauline competed in a number of events threw 7m 93 in the shot put for 1st and 21.78 in the javelin which was good enough for 2nd place to make it a very successful day for our athletes.

Higher claim athletes Hayley Richardson (top photo far left) and Francis Barlow both won their age group in both the 100 and 200m events.
Well done all of you.
