Quick Silver Performance From The CS On The Hottest Day Of The Year!

As the mercury rose on Wednesday 21 June, the hottest day of the year, both the men’s and women’s “A” teams of the London Civil Service produced a quick silver performance to achieve the runner-up spots out of the London Business Houses teams that contested the annual LBH Bridges Relays at Westminster.

The London Civil Service Athletics Team were certainly out in force fielding 12 relay teams with 9 in the Open Category (4 x 2.3 miles) and 3 teams in the Women’s Category (3 x 2.3 miles) plus there were 5 teams entered from the MOD bringing the total of Civil Service teams to 17.
The women’s “A” team consisted of Victoria Carter 15:05, Katie Beckett 14:24 and Natasha Sheel 14:47. The Men’s “A” team opened with England Mounting Running Champion Chris Smith 11:39, followed by Dan Steel 12:57, Kimon Doulis 12:34 and Steve Norris 13:18.

The fastest leg from a the Civil Service women actually came from Felicity Hannon in the women’s “B” team making her Civil Service debut clocking 14:22 on what was a stiflingly hot evening.

The 1st LBH women’s team were JPM in 44:00, 17 seconds ahead of Civil Service A team. Slaughter an May were the 3rd LBH team in 48:17 out of the 12 LBH teams that closed. West 4 were the overall winners out of the 33 women’s teams that closed.

The 1st LBH Open team were Westminster School in 48:32 ahead of Civil Service ”A” in 50:28 with EY 3rd in 50:39 out of 84 LBH teams. Overall the first 3 Open Category places were filled by Cottage Relocated “Cottage 2” in 47:42, Cottage Relocated “Cottage 4” in 47:51 and Cottage Relocated “Cottage 1” in 48:08.

The Civil Service results are shown in the full results.

Thank you to everyone who represented the London Civil Service in the LBH Bridges Relays. I’ll forward the prize vouchers to the men’s and women’s “A” teams when they arrive. Those of you that loaned a Minerva vest for the evening could you return it to me. My office address can be found at the bottom of this report.
