Bronze Medals for SAC Walkers at World Masters

July08/ 2011

Both Dave Stevens and Ian Richards won bronze medals at the World Masters Athletic Championships being held in Sacramento today (Thursday

7th July). Both are racing in 3 events (5k track, 10k and 20k road) with the 5k track taking place today.

Dave was particularly pleased with his performance in the 75 to 79 category having suffered a number of disqualifications in races this year.  He finished in 34min 13.67 secs just 3 seconds in front of the 4th walker.  Ian had a real tussle with two new entrants who have just moved into the 60 to 65 category, former Italian and Mexican internationals, and stayed with them until about half way when he dropped back to finish in 24min 41.66 secs.

Conditions in Sacramento are very tough with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees every day so far.  Although it was a bit cooler for both Dave and Ian’s races it was still over 90 degrees. Next up is the 10k next Tuesday.
