Report for Lancashire Championships

Laura Taylor produced the run of her life to win the Lancashire U 13s hurdles title at the weekend and in doing so smash both the Club and the County Championship record.

Laura had only contested the 70 m Hurdles once before but ran confidently in her heat to finish in second place despite hitting a hurdle to qualify for the final. In the final she knew that she would have to run at least half a second faster than her heat to win and this she did and in the process broke the Championship Record. Laura also was close to her best in both the Long Jump and 100m making the finals in these events as well.

Also in the medals was Gary Priestly who had a solid run to finish 3rd in the Senior 5000m.
