Reidy goes close to his best at Bedford

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

NENE Val­ley Har­ri­ers 400m hur­dles record-holder Sean Reidy went close to his per­sonal best when rep­re­sent­ing Cam­bridgeshire in the 110m hur­dles at the In­ter-Coun­ties Cham­pi­onships at Bedford.

Reidy was un­able to run his spe­cial­ist event due to work com­mit­ments with Sky Sports so ran the sprint hur­dles where he clocked 15.71, just two hun­dredths of a sec­ond out­side his best - al­though the wind speed of 2.3 me­tres per sec­ond meant it was re­garded as a wind-as­sisted per­for­mance (any­thing over 2.0m.sec is wind-as­sisted).

But he’ll be back to his favourite dis­tance when ta­ble-top­pers Nene Val­ley try to make it three wins out of three in Di­vi­sion One of the South­ern Men’s League at Thur­rock on Satur­day.

Reidy boasts a su­perb record in the South­ern Men’s League and should get their bid for an­other vic­tory off a win­ning start in the open­ing event of the day.

Club­mate Dar­rel­lon Hold­ing fin­ished eighth in his heat of the 400m in a sea­son’s best of 51.27.

It was only his third out­ing of the sea­son over that dis­tance as he has been con­cen­trat­ing on speed in the 100m and 200m but he is con­fi­dent of beat­ing his 49.33 per­sonal best once he has more 400m races un­der his belt.

His run at Ash­ford was bet­ter than it ap­pears on paper given the very windy con­di­tions and the fact he was ‘run­ning blind’ in the out­side lane.

Peter­bor­ough Ath­letic Club’s Steph Hendy rep­re­sented Lin­colnshire and fin­ished 18th in the ham­mer with 43.07m.

EMILY Moss (be­low) of Peter­bor­ough Ath­letic Club ran her sec­ond fastest ever 800m when fin­ish­ing sev­enth in the B race at the Bri­tish Mil­ers Club Nike Grand Prix in Manch­ester.

She ran 2.10.24, just 0.55 sec­onds out­side her best, while Or­ton ath­lete Ruth Wat­son ran 2.15.27 for fifth in the D race,

NENE Val­ley Har­ri­ers young­ster Sam Smith ran a per­sonal best of 2.33.6 when fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the Un­der 13 boys 800m at the Cleethor­pes Open.
