ATHLETICS DEENA Kastor tied the US and World 5K Masters record of 15:48, winning the women’s Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose 5K.
Having placed third overall, Kastor said: “I gave it my best and there was not one point on the course I could have pushed harder to get a faster time.”
Kastor, 42, set the World Masters half marathon record of 1: 09:37 in the same event, held in Philadelphia, last year. One of the world’s greatest Jewish athletes, she won the Olympic marathon bronze medal in 2004 and the London Marathon in 2006.
David Stone helped Shaftesbury Barnet win the National under-15 Road Relay. Stone, who is 13 and attends JFS, completed the first leg in 12:40.
