It was another action packed weekend of athletics at the Sainsbury’s British Indoor Championships and World Trials in Sheffield.

In the men’s 400m Nigel Levine took his fourth successive National Title in a time of 46.82secs. Luke Lennon-Ford finished ahead of his training partner, Levine, but was subsequently disqualified for a lane infringement.

After the race Levine admitted to being “a bit tired right now” due to heavy training, adding that “the race didn’t go according to plan but you’ve got to adapt.”

Margaret Adeoye took an impressive win in the women’s 400m in a time of 52.77secs, which proved just as exciting. Adeoye led from start to finish, stating that “it felt good – I had to get a few wise words from my coach because 400m is so different from 200m.”

“I was playing around with paces in the heats and the semis and then in the finals I thought forget trying to pace and run – whatever your legs give, give it your all!”

In the women’s 60m Laura Turner-Alleyne finished 3rd in her heat to produce a seasons best of 7.56secs to make the semi-finals, where she produced another best of 7.55secs.

Nathan Douglas was also in action in his first indoor competition since 2010, finishing 4th in the men’s Triple Jump with a seasons best performance of 16.27m.
