Viner mak­ing gi­ant strides

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY BRIAN SACKS

ATH­LET­ICS IN her first year com­pet­ing in the se­nior race, Han­nah Viner, 20, placed 28th out of 788 com­peti­tors in the English Na­tional Cross Country Cham­pi­onships in Not­ting­ham.

Viner started hard in her 8km race to gain a good po­si­tion. “As al­ways the case with the Na­tion­als, there was a fast start, and it was a tough race,” she com­mented. “The go­ing was firm in some places, but much of the course was boggy with some deep and wide ditches to wade through. I think I chose the right strat­egy, even though I lost a few places to­wards the end.”

So­phie Dow­son, 18, placed fifth with a clear­ance of 3.60m at the Eng­land Ath­let­ics un­der-20 pole vault Cham­pi­onships in Sh­effield. Eden Davis nar­rowly missed a place in the 60m fi­nal.
