High jumper Tom Gale and alumni David King strike gold at SPAR British Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow
Gale, who is coached by Denis Doyle at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, cleared 2.27m to take gold at the end of a winter campaign that saw him achieve the Olympic qualifying standard of 2.33m.
“I’m feeling really good and I’ve put myself in the best position looking to the outdoor season,” said Gale. “Having the Olympic qualifier behind me is a big thing so outdoors, let’s go have some fun.”
The weekend also saw Sheffield host the England Athletics Indoor Age-Group Championships, where Dual Career athlete Ben Sutton – who studies Economics – claimed the U20 men’s long jump title with a 7.10m clearance.
