British Masters AF Regional Challenge (South)

Lee Valley Sunday Aug 1, 2021

The BMAF South Challenge has been introduced this year as a temporary replacement for the South of England Masters Championships using an open meeting format with events seeded on performance rather than age-groups. No medals are awarded.

It was a very good day for all three Cambridge Harriers competing as they all managed to leave Lee Valley having set either a season's best or personal best.

Competing for the third time in the week, the previous events must have been beneficial, as Wole Odele stormed to a lifetime best of 56.1s to win the second 400m race and move back up to No. 1 position on the national M55 rankings for 400m.

Edmund Adigwe was competing for the second time in the week, this time over 800m in the A race. He was well clear of everyone else in the field, getting to the bell at 58 seconds and working hard in his solo effort on the second lap to finish in a season-best time of 2:01.57, over 7 seconds clear of the field. Edmund remains in second spot on the 800m rankings for the M45 age group.

In the field, Natalie Mann, also competing for the second day this week, competed in four throwing events, recording a PB in the Discus throw with a new best of 18.91m.

There was also the familiar voice of Richard Mann on announcing duty.
