Result from BUCS meeting

Doncaster AC athlete Chloe Bradley has been competing for the Loughborough university team over the winter in BUCS cross counties and recently for the 1500m.  Chloe was selected to represent the Loughborough team for the 1500m at the British Universities Colleges Sport championships held last weekend at the EIS.  The heats were on Saturday and Chloe ran a good strong race finishing in third place and recorded a new personal best time of 4minutes 50.2 seconds and qualified for the final.  Sunday’s final Chloe ran the 1500m final and finished in a creditable 6th place and was rewarded with another personal best time of 4mins 49.28s, recording another Doncaster ac club record for her efforts.

Over the last few months Chloe has been training and competing for the Loughborough team and her training and hard work has improved her best time for the 1500m by over 30 seconds.
