Kate & Charlotte scorch to personal bests on the boards


ON day of drama on the boards in Cardiff Kate Hulls and Charlotte Green soared to second and fourth respectively on the Bristol & West AC rankings over 3000m.

The first Cardiff Met Uni Indoor Grand Prix meeting saw Kate (pictured left) pace her race to perfection to clock a winning women’s time of 9mins 20.71secs.

KateHulls2015BLying third woman in a mixed B race at 2,000m (6:21.7) Kate accelerated up to the lead girl and forged away.  She then increased her pace and caught quite a few men to finish top woman.

According to club statistician Mike Strange Kate’s time has only been surpassed by 2008 Beijing Olympian Kate Reed when she clocked 9:18.95 back in 2004.

The time also smashed Kate’s six-year-old PB of 9:32.1.

Denied a place in the B race a fired-up Charlotte (pictured below) was forced to drop into the C race where she was helped by some excellent pacemaking by Tom Marshall.

Charlotte relentlessly pulled away from an otherwise all male field to cross the finish in 9:36/42, which smashed her PB by 20 seconds.

“I believe that CharlotteGreenAction2015will put Char into fourth on the club all time list behind Kate & Kate and Irish International Maria Lynch,” stated Strange.

In the men’s 3000m Mike Wilsmore finished third in a time of 8:28.74.
