Joe Appiah wins gold in European Vets Championships

Joe has been competing in the 2017 European Masters Championships in Aahus Denmark.

In the long jump he held the lead until the forth round with a leap of 6.47 meters. He had to settle for silver behind the Swede Mattias Sunneborn who pipped him by just one centimeter.


However in the 110m hurdles Joe struck gold with a winning time of 15.22 secs. He was denied a championship record by a strong head wind.

Joe’s final medal and second gold came in the men’s 45+ 4x100m relay where he ran the first leg.

Great performance Joe!
