MORE SUCCESS FOR STELLAR ATHLETES
Stellar athletes are celebrating success at the 2020 Müller British Athletics Championships.
Harry Aikines-Aryeetey ended a 12-year wait to win gold in the men’s 100m with a season best time of 10.35. Laviai Nielsen, meanwhile, retained the 400m women’s title with a UK leading time of 51.72, shortly after watching her twin sister Lina claim silver in the 400m hurdles.
At the Manchester championships there were also silver medals for Isabelle Boffey (800m), Georgina Adam (200m National Senior Champs), Cameron Fillery (110m Hurdles), Abigail Irozuru (Long Jump), Rosie Clarke (Steeple Chase) and Adam Hague in the Pole Vault.
Speaking about his win Harry Aikines-Aryeetey said: “This means so much. British sprinting is at its peak at the moment. I have won and I am British champion, for the first time after all these years. It bodes well for next year.
He added: “I am enjoying life and doing more things off the track but I am working hard and lockdown has taught me you have to persevere. I have won because of my mental attitude.”
