British Indoor Championships

Doncaster AC senior women athlete Chloe Bradley was invited to compete at the British Indoor Championships this weekend and certainly had a baptism competing in her first major senior championships with the British elite 800m runners, as in her race was Lindsey Sharp, the European and Commonwealth medalist, who ran a storming 800m winning the heat.  Chloe was just off her race pace and was hoping the other athletes in her race would try and keep in contention with Lindsey for a fast time.  Chloe finished the race with a creditable time of 2.12.30 and looking to run under 2.10 for this summer championships.
