Charlotte clinches GB place

Saturday 26 November 2016

Cardiff's Charlotte Arter produced one of the best performances of her career to take second place in the British Athletics Cross Challenge in Liverpool today after an intriguing tussle with seasoned Great Britain international and three times winner Gemma Steel.

The Liverpool race counts as the official trial for the Great Britain team to take part in the European Cross Country Championship and second place today guarantees Charlotte her place in the team.

The European Cross Country Championships will be held in Chia, Italy on 11th December.

The senior men's race, with 632 finishers, saw Ieuan Thomas in 19th and, making a welcome return to racing in Britain, Mike Ward in 41st.

In the under 17 women's race, Abbi Fisher was 16th, Kiara Frizelle 20th and Naomi Reid 29th, while Jacob Reynolds was 16th in the under 13 boys' race.

Congratulations to all for some excellent performances.
