Middlesex 3km track Walking Championships, Lee Valley 24th May 14
On Saturday Shaun Lightman was the Club’s only representative at the Midddlesex chanpionships where it was cool and breezy after heavy overnight rain for the 6 contestants. The first and second places were well clear of each other and of the rest, both being, by coincidence, European internationals from Portugal and Lithuainia. Third and fourth places saw much more of a battle with Shaun in the lead early on but Artur Domingos coming past to lead by some 20 metres mid-race. Shaun’s experience told in the last third and he regained the lead with 600 metres to go and held a convincing lead of 10 seconds at the finish not far from his 17 minute target.

1. F.Reis (Ilf M50) 14 min 8.34 sec; 2. G.Narviliene (Belg W40) 14 min 44.7 sec; 3. S.Lightman (Sy WC M70) 17 min 10.56 sec.
