Exeter Harriers athletes Finley McLear and Molly Canham were both celebrating Gold Medal success after the English Schools Track and Field Championships at Gateshead on 8th & 9th July.
McLear running in the Inter Boys 1500m Steeplechase won with a time of 4:19.74 (NS), a new PB for him placing him first in the UK and AT rankings. His success has meant selection for the SIAB Track & Field International at Ashford on 16th July.
Canham running in the Junior Girls 800m, and also ranked UK No 1, won with a time of 2:10:07 (NS), a little short of her PB 2:07.84. No doubt she’ll be chasing Tilly Simpson’s AT record time of 2:06.22. She now has her sights set on the U15/U17 EA Champs at Bedford on 27th & 28th August.
The very best of luck to both athletes.
