Dou­ble de­light for Good­man

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY BRIAN SACKS

ATH­LET­ICS RICHARD Good­man main­tained his promis­ing start to the cross coun­try sea­son with two clear vic­to­ries.

He fol­lowed up his suc­cess at the Lon­don Col­leges League at Par­lia­ment Hill by win­ning the North of Thames Cham­pi­onships in Kings­bury.

His 78-sec­ond vic­tory in the lat­ter race, which he com­pleted in a fast 23:47 for five miles, in­di­cates that he is ap­proach­ing the form that brought him the In­ter Coun­ties ti­tle last year.

Good­man said: “In both out­ings I sat in early on and then tested my­self by push­ing hard on my own.

“Look­ing fur­ther ahead to the track sea­son, I have learned that I need to take things a bit more eas­ily in train­ing.

“Then hope­fully I can achieve the break­through per­for­mances that fa­tigue and in­jury have pre­vented in the last few years.”
