Lima and Briggs fly the BRAT flag at major championships

Representing Portugal, David Lima has been competing in the 200m at the European athletics championships in Amsterdam from July 6th-10th, where he may have had his last chance to achieve the Olympic qualifying time of 20.60s. David sailed through the heats in the 5th fastest time overall of 20.82s, finishing 3rd in his heat.  In the semifinals, competition was much more fierce and he came 7th in a time of 20.88s into a considerable headwind, and so unfortunately failed to progress to the final.

 

In the English schools championships at Gateshead on July 8/9th, our star thrower, Jonathan Briggs, came a very creditable 6th with a throw of 42.54m, just below his personal best.

 

Well done David and Jonathan!
