|The European Masters 3km Indoor Walking Championships was held in San Sebastian, Spain, and lasted a week to cover all age groups and events. As usual the UK contingent for the walking event was considerable at almost 20 including another Gold medal for UK ex-international Arthur Thompson in the M75 group with a time many much younger walkers would struggle to achieve especially against a background of very strict judging and several disqualifications. SWC had two men present in Spain both of who successfully negotiated the judging with Roger Mitchell obtaining bronze in the M65 group in a good time and John May the same colour of medal in the M80s. Johnís time was a minute or so below expectation but well done to both in such a high profile event.|
