Featured Result to Give Inspiration To All

Leamington C & AC One Hour Classic, Leamington Track, 07 September
Dave Dix reports:
"After a gap of 24 years (1987: The Year City won the FA Cup) Martin Slevin returned to the scene of his one and only appearance and victory in the Leamington 1 hour track classic. Despite recovering from the effects of a virus (editor's note - a cold!) his undoubted class was evident and his smooth striding style consistenly ate up the laps in the gathering gloom. A race long battle with Jo Pulsford (1st female) of Rugby and Northampton AC saw Slevin pull away in the last minute to score a shock victory breaking through the 15KM (15030) barrier en-route. A delighted Slevin commented: "Class is for life".
Track and Field afficianado's commented this win after 24 years is akin to Chris Boardman making a come back to win a stage of the Tour de France!!"
