Davis leads East London University to BUCS victory

Eden Davis anchored the East London University 4x100m relay team to a fine victory at the British Universities Championships in Bedford. The squad recorded an impressive time of 41.00.

    Eden Davis insists there is room for improvement after his relay victory at the BUCS.

    Davis, 19, placed fifth in the individual 100m event, recording 10.87 against a headwind. “I wasn’t totally happy with my individual performance, but it is early in the season and I should not be peaking yet,” Davis commented.

    “I’m happy that we worked really well as a team and were able to get the baton round cleanly and take the win.”

    Earlier in the week, Davis had contested his first 100m event of the season at the Lee Value Sprint Open, recording 10.71. Honing his speed at the same meeting, middle-distance specialist Gilad Nachshen, 14, reduced his 200m PB by more than a second to 24.25.

    Hannah Viner moved to the top of the UK U23 rankings for the distance when she completed the Mid-Cheshire 5K in 16:44. Highgate Harrier Viner placed ninth overall.

    Viner commented: “It had been raining all day but it cleared up an hour before the race so conditions were perfect. I went out hard but I wasn’t wearing a watch and wasn’t aware of my position in the women’s race.

    “I am a little disappointed in my time, but it was a road PB and the race came at the end of a heavy training block.” Maayan Radus, 13, recorded 4:49.82 for 1,500m at the Watford Open Graded Meeting, cutting her PB by almost six seconds. Her sister, Lia, 16, set a season’s best of 4:43.80 at the same meeting, three days after taking 1,500m victory at the Eastern Young Athletes League in Reading.

    Matti Harris, 15, improved his personal bests for 800m and 1,500m in the space of four days, with times of 2:14.04 at the Watford Open Graded Meeting and 4:40.4 in the Eastern Young Athletes League.
