Highgate Harrier Rebecca Johnson, who has been studying at Edinburgh University, has run some good times on the track recently. At the BMC Gold Standard meeting at Watford on 18 May she ran 4:25.65 for 1500m not a long way off her personal best of 4:23.48 she did last Summer. At the Birmingham Grand Prix on the 14th of May, she ran a personal best 5000m in 16:06.16.
Tony Richards, in the over 70 age group, is still a phenomenal competitor in his age group. He has been competing well indoors and outdoors. He said in the Highgate Harriers Newsletter "I competed in the British Masters Throws Pentathlon (on the 8th of May) shot, discus, javelin, hammer and weight (very heavy). All my training at Parliament Hill paid off as I managed to win the Gold Medal. This is the first time I have managed to become a British All round throws Champion."
