Brook Cronin (U20) has had an outstanding season so far, winning the South of England U20 200m, which were held at Walton, before taking the silver medal at the England U20 Championships in the same event.  Last weekend he was called up to represent Great Britain U20 at an international meeting in Germany, where he demolished his PB, winning the event in a time of 20.98secs and setting an overall Walton Club Record.  This has projected him to the top of the UK U20 200m rankings and is also a European U20 qualifying time, so we wait in anticipation to hear if he gets selected to represent GBR at the European U20 Championships which will be in Jerusalem.

Nicholas Landeau (SM) has impressed with some early season form.  He broke the 30-yearold senior club 800m record twice in the space of 2 days at BMC Gold meetings.  The first was in Trafford where he won the B race in a time of 1:48.82 and then travelled to Watford the following evening and recorded a time of 1:48.25 in the A race which was loaded with some world class athletes.  Nick, who represented Trinidad & Tobago at last year’s Commonwealth Games, has been a credit to the club proudly wearing his Walton vest in these high-profile races and has turned out for the Club at our 2 SAL matches, cleverly using the league competition as a means of supplementing his training whilst gaining valuable points for the Club in both individual events and the relays.  He is currently chasing a qualifying time for the World Athletics World Championships in Budapest.

Congratulations to Sam Mace (SM) who won the hammer and discus at the UK Police Championships and was presented with some iconic trophies.  He has now been selected to represent the UK at the European Police Athletics Championships which will be held in the Czech Republic in August.
