SLOW's Michael Balling is South East Sprint Champion

Congratulations to SLOW athlete Michael Balling who becomes South East Sprint Champion for 2012 after finishing as top SE runner at the sprint championships at the University of Surrey. Tom Cochrane, also of SLOW, was 3rd SE runner on the same course.

Michael said that he “came in shocked to find I was actually leading. 2 secs up on second” for the first of the two races. Although overtaken by a non-qualifier in the second race, he was able to stretch his championship lead and secure Gold medal by just under a minute.

Congratulations are also due to SLOW’s Sarah Brown who is SE Sprint Champion for 2012, in the Women’s Supervet class. She won more comfortably, with an impressive five minute margin.
