Happy re­turn for Edwards

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY ROS­ALIND ZEFFERTT

ATH­LET­ICS AF­TER sev­eral months out of ac­tion due to in­jury, El­lie Edwards, 22, was back on the track at Manch­ester’s Sportc­ity with a 60m time of 8.15sec at the Sale Har­ri­ers open se­ries meet­ing.

At the same venue a few days later, pole vaulter Lu­cie Wolfenden, 17, made a con­fi­dent start to her U20 cam­paign.

Her leap of 3.12m at the Manch­ester pole vault open, where she placed sec­ond, was just 3cm off of her per­sonal best.

Li­ina Ot­salu of Mac­cabi Lon­don Har­ri­ers con­tested the 60m for the first time at the Sut­cliffe in­door se­ries event in Eltham, South Lon­don, win­ning her heat in 8.99sec.

Ot­salu, 23, only restarted her ath­let­ics ca­reer in Au­gust last year af­ter an 11-year break.

Long-dis­tance spe­cial­ist Nick Gold com­pleted the 5K in Hyde Park in 16.57. It was the High­gate Har­ri­ers V45 ath­lete’s best time since 2012.
