Skinner's Great Britain selection
Michael Skinner has been selected to represent Great Britain at the World Cross Country Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland on the 24th of March. The Blackheath & Bromley athlete finished in a fine 5th place in the Trials race which was incorporated into the Inter Counties Championships at Cofton Park, Birmingham.
He raced there as an individual and not as part of the Kent team. Had he scored for the County they would have finished in 4th place but instead had to settle for 14th. Alex Gibbins was 141st.
Elaine Murty continued her excellent finish to the Winter season as she was 26th place in the Senior Womens race. She was the first Kent athlete to finish and in so doing helped the team to 9th place.
Amber Reed was 50th in the under 20 womens race. Kent won the team race here but such was the quality of the squad she was not one of the scoring team.
Kate Curran was 29th in the under 17 womens race and was part of the Kent team that finished in 5th place. Anna Myers was 113th and Bethany Frost 136th. For the men Will Fuller was 67th and was the 4th Kent scorer as the team were 8th.
Georgina Taylor was 17th in the under 15 girls race and Jessica Keene 23rd, Niamh Bridson Hubbard 101st and Shannon Riskey 174th as the Kent team placed 5th.
Naomi Kingston had an outstanding run in the under 13 girls race finishing in 6th place and helping Kent to silver team medals. This was her third race in a week as the previous Sunday she had won the Westminster Mini Marathon trials and midweek had finished 2nd in the London Schools year 8 cross country championships at Avery Hill.
In the boys race Jake Potter was part of the winning Kent team as he finished in an excellent 11th place.
