Jack Green reached the semi finals of the 400m hurdles in the 2017 World Athletic Championships in London.
David Lima equalled this fine achievement by getting to the 200m semi-final.
Both of our athletes made the semi finals of their events – quite an achievement given the standard ! Our Portuguese athlete David Lima ran the 200m heats and qualified to the semis with 20.54 secs. In the semi finals last night (lane 3 in picture) he came 4th with 20.56 secs and missed the final by a few places. Real progress from him which bodes well for the future.
Jack Green has had a great season leading to the Championships dipping under 49 secs but couldn’t quite maintain that standard in London. He ran the 400mH heats in 49.55 secs and in the semi finals 49.93 secs,.coming 5th. He had a clear run at the hurdles this time which indicates that there will be more to come from him. None the less a fine achievement at the highest of standards.
Well done to both on a great achievement, something that they can be really proud of and something that the five club members present in the stadium were privileged to witness.
