Podiums this weekend – British Sprints

At the British Sprint Distance Champs GO win 4 medals.

At one time during their Finals races Aimee, Chris Kiddier, Linda Pakuls and James Crawford were all leading their courses. Aimee managed to hold to to win and Chris, Linda and James finished close seconds to take Silver in each case. Keith Tonkin finished 4th just outside of the medals.

Aimee won by 10 seconds from Rachael of DVO. At control 12 Aimee is trailing Rachael by 1:41 but a brilliant leg 14 and a mistake by Rachael at 16 gives Aimee the lead which she hangs onto the end. Well done Aimee.

At control 14 Chris leads long-time rival Sarah Brown by 14 seconds but a run of small errors 11 through to 14 cost 35 seconds allowing Sarah to slip ahead and take Gold.

At control 5 Linda makes a 70 second error slipping from 1st to 6th position. The fightback starts but time runs out and at the finish Linda has clawed herself back to Silver position just 24 seconds adrift of Diane Leakey.

Control 13 of 18 sees James tied in 1st place with Adrian Pickles with Gavin Clegg 6 seconds off the pace. Keith is in fourth position. At control 14 James makes a poor route decision which costs him 10 seconds and drops to third place. Adrian, Gavin and James run the final four controls in 71 seconds each so the positions remain unchanged. Five seconds separate Gold from Silver and Silver from Bronze.
