  1. I can Andrew , right after the start ,somebody pushed me down and I crashed on the track . It was indeed a Golden mile with Steve Cram WR mile , it was a fantastic race that I can still remember .

  2. Antonio, your memory must be playing tricks as the commentator (the great David Coleman) said the faller walked off the track in disgust. The Antonio we all know and love would have got up and finished the race!
    I too remember this race and have never seen anyone run in such impressive style as Steve Cram. The Jarrow Arrow indeed.

  3. Yes Howard , if indeed I was n 71probably I would got up and chase the group and try to to beat the great Steve Cram and as Sebastian C. and as well my rival David Cattanach. To be honest I have never been in Norway , it was not me.

  4. Congratulations to Mark H. for winning the Golden Mile with an awesome 5:18 that is as well a club record, indeed Mark was a superstar on this beautiful university’s track. The juniors ran in a splendid mood with Jenson B. with the best result of 6:10 and Holly D. not far behind with a super 6:20. Also the two sisters Webster ran strongly on the night, Imogen with 7:39 and Alice 8:11. Adam P. ran a superb Golden Mile with 7:50 that is a good result . Well done everyone .

  5. Thanks Antonio, as ever you are very generous and your words are always appreciated. You ran well too and your enthusiasm at events is good for team moral even if you do think I should be thinking about retirement! Always good to see you.

  6. Not at all Mark , no retirement , you can still win the Yorkshire Championship at 75 , what I meant is best to back off sometimes from hard training , to avoid bad injury like the last one that kept you out of running for several months . Also really I am not that generous with my words towards you because after all you are the Yorkshire Champion and the British Champion and it is enough to have a look at the club records to see your name over and over again together with the International Eric S. and the great Ian Fisher .
