British Sprints and Middle Distance Championships

LEI members were out in force for the Sprints and Middles this year.

Podiums at the sprints were achieved by Harrington Leake (1st on M10) and Finn Lydon (3rd on M16) while Harrington continued his good form to win the M10 class at the Middles as well. This completes a clean sweep this year for Harrington having won JK Sprints, JK combined and the Sprint, Middle and Long distance championships.

JK Relays

LEI had 9 relays teams in the JK relays. After a slightly delayed start the relays got under way and all our teams were finished in good time. The M48- team of Euan Tebbutt, Ethan Tebbutt and Finn Lydon were placed third overall after three brilliant runs.
