Darren Towart and Julian Ions represented NEMAA admirably at last weekend's indoor championships at Sheffield, with strong performances in the 400mH. Julian won the M45 age group in a time of 1:06.03, whilst Darren won the M40 age group in a time of 1:00.80. They both gained world records in addition to their gold medals for their respective age groups (particularly impressive given that this was Julian's first attempt at 400m hurdles). Congratulations to both.
We have several NEMAA athletes competing at this weekend's NECAA Indoor Champs, so let's hope they can emulate the success of these two and come away with some medals and even the odd record or two - best of luck to all! Don't forget, there's still time to enter the Indoor Pentathlon Champs, entry details are here.
