After the excitement of the exploits of Blackheath & Bromley’s athletes at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, this week it was the turn of some of the club’s other internationals to take centre stage.
Scott Overall, who represented Great Britain at last years Olympics, continued his preparations for the Berlin Marathon in six weeks time with another race in the small German town of Schortens.
He finished in fourth place in the 10 mile event over a four lap course in a time of 48.44. This was a little slower than he had hoped for but it was just preparation for his main target over the marathon distance.
Like Scott a number of the club’s athletes who were in action at the Inter Counties will be looking at gaining selection for next years Commonwealth Games.
Serita Solomon, who was unfortunate to miss out on a place at the World Championships, won the 100 metre hurdles in 13.17s. She remains third ranked in the country this season.
Also third ranked is Shaunagh Brown in the hammer and she claimed victory in her event with a distance of 63.44m, over four metres clear of the runner-up.
Montell Douglas’ season has been hampered by injury problems but the British 100 metre record holder cruised to victory in 11.72s, despite running into a -1.4 headwind.
Craig Morten set a new best of 53.96s in the 400 hurdles, while Krystal Galley was fifth in the 400 metres and Tom Parker ninth in the hammer.
