Abbie Donnelly was 1st GB athlete at the European Cup of 10,000m at Pace in France last Saturday. It puts her no 5 in the National Rankings for this year and 0.8 secs outside the European Champs qualifying time.

Abbie broke the long standing record of Annette Bell’s with a time of 32.20.08.

Kaesi Opara recently smashed the Senior Men’s 100m and 200m record at the Northern League Track & Field meeting at Derby with a time of 10.58 and 21.48 and went on to break the record further with a 21.36 at Loughborough and 21.22 at Sheffield.

Both athletes have been invited to compete at the Muller UK Athletics Championships at Manchester on the 24 June.

Congratulations and good luck to you both.
