British Athletics 10km Championships, Hillingdon Cycle Circuit, Hillingdon, Saturday 20th July

Tom Bosworth (Andi Drake) cruised to victory in 41.46 on a hilly course that had two big climbs per 2 km loop.  He was never opposed and took his second national title of the year to go with his 20km title in April. Daniel King (George Nibre) despite having a 50km in his legs from Dublin only three weeks ago got the better of his twin brother and London 2012 Olympian Dominic King (George Nibre). Ilford AC took the team title, whilst the Kings led Essex to the CAU team championships.

In the Women’s race Bethan Davies (Andi Drake) looked set to build on her victory and Welsh Record over 5,000 metres at Birmingham last weekend. But she found the hilly course not to her liking and was removed by the judges at the 8km point whilst comfortably in the lead. This led the way for Michelle Turner, who was only 4th at Birmingham to take her first national title ahead of Heather Lewis in second who finished in the same position as last weekend. Alana Barber (Andi Drake) in 3rd place led both Hyde Park Harriers (Leeds) and Yorkshire the club and Inter Counties team championships.

Kierra Barker (Andy Sleap) equalled her PB in the high jump to win with a leap of 1.75m which also puts her third. Stefan Amokwandoh (John Vernon) was first in the triple jump with a PB 14.44m which puts him top of the under-17 rankings.
