August 25th-31st – European Vets Championships, Izmir, Turkey

Otley AC’s athlete Caroline Marler reports:

4 GOLDS!
These championships were held in very hot conditions but the timetable was split into two sessions to avoid the midday sun. I ran my individual events, the 400m and 800m before it got too hot luckily (8.30 a.m. & 9.20 a.m.)
I was pleased to win both comfortably, retaining the 400m title I won 2 years ago in Zittau, Germany.
The results with first 3 positions were as follows:
400m Women 60-65
1st Caroline Marler (G.B)70.23 – this was my fastest for 2 years
2nd Anna Micheletti (Italy) 73.03
3rd Ulla Karneback 75.04

800m. Women 60-65
1st Caroline Marler 2.48.05 (my best since winning the World Champs. in Brazil last year)
2nd Ingerlise Jensen (Denmark) 2.51.68
3rd Anne Debray (France) 2.54.92

I was also part of the 4x100m & 4 x400m relay squads which won gold medals.

  1. It is fantastic Caroline to run 4 winning races at such level . Congratulation for your 4 gold european medals , you deserve a gold medal also from our running club and from the Otley Town as well , well done indeed.

  2. Well done Caroline, in the heat too! The terrific photo sums it up nicely. I think the Turkish for Midas must be Marler!
