Bob Daly placed 6th in the M65 “A” final for the World Long Distance Champs in Puglia on Saturday – improving on the very good 13th place he got on Thursday in the Middle format. Well done, Bob!
And at JWOC in Portugal, Sam Griffin and his GB Teammates Rachel Duckworth, Jim Bailey and Iris MacMillan came 5th in the Mixed relay and also managed a run in the Sprints before the threat of forest fires meant the cancellation of Middle and Long Distance races.
Prize to the first person to spot him in the JWOC TV coverage (link half way down the BO report page) and tell us which part of the five and half hours of coverage to target!
Both events took place in scorchio wall-to-wall sunshine and hats off to anyone daft enough to even contemplate running round in that heat.
