ATH­LET­ICS SIS­TERS Maayan and Lia Radus re­turned from the Mid­dle­sex Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onships with a medal apiece.

Maayan, 11, took un­der-13 gold while Lia, 14, placed se­cond in the un­der-15 race.

“The Worm­wood Scrubs course was flat but very muddy,” Lia com­mented.

“I got one of my best ever starts,” said Maayan. “I slipped in be­hind the girl who even­tu­ally came se­cond and moved along­side her just be­fore half way. Once we hit the mid­way point I ran as hard as I could.” This surge brought her home 20 sec­onds clear of the field.

Bini Bloom, 12, won the Years 8 and 9 ti­tle in the Bar­net Schools Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onships. His brother Jack, 14, placed third in the Years 10 and 11 race and was the first Year 10 finisher.

Richard Good­man gained a 45-se­cond vic­tory at the Metropoli­tan Cross Coun­try League in Perivale. Hav­ing now won the three league races that he has con­tested, a win in the fi­nal com­pe­ti­tion next month should bring him the over­all se­ries vic­tory.
