Nicola Sanders - superb run in Rethymno
23rd July

There have been some excellent performances in recent days as the track and field season reaches its summer crescendo with a huge amount of changes to the Power of Ten rankings as athletes reach their seasonal peaks. 

Top of the list has to be Gemma Prescott (Challenge Disability Sports Club) has threw a world’s best of 12.11m in the F32 Discus at the German Disability Games in Sindelfingen.

There was also a great outing by Nicola Sanders (Windor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow) who showed a timely return to form in Rethymno with 51.21 to claim the A standard for the World championships in Berlin, while Tyrone Edgar (Newham & Essex Beagles) sped down the track at the same venue in 10.09, another A standard. David Greene (Swansea) has sustained his early season form with a world-class 48.78 in Lucerne.
