Veterans’ Inter-Area Match 2km Walk, Lee Valley Stadium 23rd Feb 14
Sunday saw a keenly contested Inter-Area match indoors at Lee Valley with 4 SWC representing their area clubs – Shaun Lightman, Sandra Campbell and Peter Hannell walking for Vets AC and Angela Martin for Southern Vets. Angela’s time was by far the best performance at new distance and difficult indoor track worth among her best. Shaun, easily SWC’s fastest, also was ahead of equivalent recent times for other events and although faced with much younger competition scored well for Vets AC whose team 3rd place was most satisfactory.
