Southb of England AA Indoor Championships

At Lee Valley over the weekend 6th/7th January three Chichester Runners sprint/hurdlers started  their 2018 campaign at the South of England Indoor Championships posting personal best performances along the way.


In the U15 age group Fleur Hollyer conquered her new 60m Hurdles stride pattern with a PB of 10.88s. In the 60m sprint, despite being drawn in an outside lane, a confident start along with a good drive and finish phase, saw her set a 60m PB of 8.51s taking nearly half a second off her previous mark, but missing the final by just 0.02sec.


Sophie Dudman competing as an U15 for the first time, looked very strong in the 60m hurdles stopping the clock at 10.31s. Later in the 60m Sprint, and also drawn in an outside lane, she ran what was technically her best sprint race of her career to date recording an encouraging PB of 8.71s.


Competing in the U17 age group and making her Indoor Athletics debut, Phoebe Pontet, displayed all her usual good hurdling technique, with a fine 60m hurdles clocking of 10.47s.   


They return to the same venue later this month for the London Indoor Games.
