David Lima qualifies for the World Athletics Championships

Following his 4th place in the 200m in 20.87s at European Team championships in Vaasa Finland on June 23-25th, David Lima has realised his potential and long term dream and has qualified for the World Athletics Championships in London in August.  He was competing in an international meeting in La Chaux du Fonds in Switzerland this weekend and ran a club record time of 20.30s in winning the 200m, well inside the 20.44s entry standard.  He also won the 100m in another club record time of 10.14s, just 0.02s outside the qualifying standard for that event.

 

David therefore becomes the first BRAT athlete to compete at a World Championships and the club wishes him a successful experience at the ultimate level of competition.
