Euro 10k team 2013


09 June 2013

Great Britain and Northern Ireland came away from the 2013 European Cup 10,000m with a team medal yesterday following a strong performance from the women’s trio.

In hot conditions Sonia Samuels (George Gandy) led the British Women to a superb team silver medal finishing in ninth in 34:00.51. She was swiftly followed across the line by Alyson Dixon (self coached) and Stevie Stockton (George Gandy) in 11th and 12th – 34:03.05 and 34:03.88, Stockton making her debut over the 25 lap distance.

It meant the women were second only to Spain, and even then by just seven seconds as their team aggregate of 1.42:07.44 was just slightly slower than the winning 1.42:00.90.

In the men’s race Jonny Mellor (Dave Evans) was the only GB finisher in 29:56.38, with Joe MacDonald (John Nuttall) unfortunately recording a DNF.
