Eastern Counties Track & Field Champs - Cambridge

Colchester & Tendring came away with five medals at the Eastern Counties Track and Field Championships held at Cambridge on Saturday, the strong wind made times slower than usual but this did not deter strong performances.   16 year old Sam Redgrave demonstrated once again what a good competitor she is winning her U20 800mts dominating the race from start to finish in a Championship best of 2m.18.65s to win Gold, in the U17 men 800mts Michael Porter, after a fast first lap, settled down to finish a worthy 1st to win Gold  in 2m.7.94; Tom Gifford in the U20 800mts finished 2nd to take Silver; in the U17 3000mts Joe Alexander paced himself well - 2nd to take Silver and Sian Gifford won Bronze in the Senion Ladies 800mts.    Fine efforts came from Polly Banks U13 800mts - 3m.03 PB,  Hannah Banks and Sian Hicks in the 1500mts.
