Ken Bobbitt, Double British Champion

Ken Bobbitt
Masters AF Championships, Alexander Stadium, Birmingham 9-10 August 2014
Hillingdon AC’s two representatives at these championships came away with three medals. In the 3000m Walk on the Saturday, Ken Bobbitt won the M70 age group in 17:49.29. Then, on a blustery Sunday afternoon, he won the 5000m M70 Walk in 30:16.14, after a stride for stride race against the 2nd placed M45 walker, beating him by half a second. In the same two races, ex-HAC walker Trevor Jones won the M55 age group. In the 5000m M75 run, Doug Milsom came third in 24:21.94, having tracked the 2nd place runner, Ed Simpson, for the first 8 laps, until a sore Achilles tendon finally slowed him down.
