Silver and two bronze for Team Hillier as Bath-based athletes impress at 2018 Muller British Championships

01 July 2018

James Hillier’s training group at the University of Bath enjoyed another impressive weekend at the 2018 Muller British Athletics Championships as they won three medals between them for a second successive year.

MJ Church ambassador David King booked his place at this summer’s European Championships in Berlin by finishing runner-up to former Bath-based athlete Andrew Pozzi in the 110m hurdles final.

King, who had won his heat, clocked 13.81 in hot but breezy conditions at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.

Leon Reid added to his Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games bronze medal by again finishing third in the 200m final, his time of 20.31 being just four-hundredths of a second outside the personal best he had set in winning his heat.

Sports Performance student Cameron Chalmers, supported by a Thompson Education Trust scholarship, was also on the podium as he won 400m bronze for a second successive year at the British Championships in a time of 45.79.

It was a good weekend for University of Bath graduates too, with Rosie Clarke finishing 23 seconds clear of the field as she won 3,000m steeplechase gold in 9:45.83.

Kirsten McAslan clocked a new personal best of 56.48 to finish runner-up in a 400m hurdles final without University of Bath-based Eilidh Doyle, who is recovering from an injury she sustained while winning bronze at the World Indoor Championships in March.

The men’s 400m hurdle final saw Sports Performance graduate Jack Green win silver behind former Bath-based training partner and 2011 World Champion Dai Greene.
