May 29th, 2013 by Pete

StevenAshford Athletic Club had three athletes compete in the BUPA Westminster Mile held on Sunday 26th May. Olympian Lisa Dobriskey finished 2nd in the senior women’s mile with a time of 4.32 finishing just behind Hannah England who ran 4.31.
The club was represented by two wheelchair athletes who competed in the Wheelchair British Athletics Road Chmapionships event. Gregg Aitken finished in 7th place overall in a new personal best time of 5.15. Steven Sopp was 13th overall with a new personal best time of 6.35. Both athletes have only been training for a matter of months and competing since April got the chance to test themselves against the world’s greatest wheelchair racer David Weir who won the race in superfast time of 3.09. Both athletes have a bright future ahead of them and can only improve further.

Well done to all three athletes for competing.
