Euro medal success for British athletes
Serial medallist Marcel Hodge (Leicestershire) raced to double gold in the 100m and 200m whilst Owen Miller (Dunfermline, Fife) stormed to gold in the 800m, and bronze in the 1500m.
Hodge and Miller added to the tally as part of the bronze medal winning 4 x 100m relay team with Robert Ferrol (Glasgow) and James Simpson (Cumbria).
The medal tally grew as silver medallists Holly Durbidge (Lowestoft, Suffolk), Martina Barber (Stevenage, Herts), Kimberley Aspland (Beccles, Suffolk), Stephanie Moore (Blaydon On Tyne, Newcastle) and Emily Rawlins (Longsight, Manchester) added their contributions.
Declan Manning (Bungay, Suffolk) missed out on a podium performance but registered a strong personal best.
Team Manager Paul Burns said:
‘I am delighted with our achievements, particularly from such a young team. It is the youngest team we have ever sent to a major competition. We’ve had several individual medal winning performances and personal bests despite strong competition from Portugal, Sweden and Poland. Facilities in Sweden were great, friendly locals - its one of my favourite countries to compete in’.
