    Stone, a pupil at JFS, earned his place following his victory in a close and dramatic race at last month’s under-17 National Cross Country Championships at Parliament Hill.

    He took home from that race a trophy won eight years ago by former JFS pupil Richard Goodman, and in the more distant past, by athletes such as Mo Farah and David Bedford. Shaftesbury Barnet athlete Stone also won junior 3,000m gold in last year’s Maccabiah Games in Israel.

    Roger Bruck, 78, achieved his highest jump since 2016 in taking V75 gold at the British Masters Championships at Lee Valley. His clearance of 1.24m took the Barnet & District athlete to the top of the National age group rankings.

    Bruck commented: “I think my improvement was due to a longer and faster run-up, and also helped by my giving the 60m event the miss.” Bruck also secured silver in the 200m and bronze in the long jump.

    Shaftesbury Barnet multi-eventer Rosalind Zeffertt gained two bronzes in the V55 age group, recording 9.76 in the 60m and a distance of 3.52m in the long jump. “I am working towards running the 60m in less time than it takes Bolt to run 100m,” Zeffertt mused.

    Hannah Viner was first woman and second overall in the Hampstead Heath parkrun, recording 17:46.
