With the Intercollegiate Athletics Championships only ten days away this could not be happening at a better time.
Earlier this week Rainer Soros (4M) lapped the field in the 5,000 metres and put in a PB which would have ensured a podium finish at the nationals. Rainer’s form this year has been outstanding and he has looked the goods against all-comers in recent outings. His current form (three PBs in successive events) is a great tribute to the work he has done over summer, to the dedication of his coach Abe Luddydope and to the improvement in school facilities undertaken last year by the board. If Rainer can maintain this form, he will acquit himself extremely well and the Intercollegiate record could be in serious danger. He certainly carries with him the hopes and very best wishes of us all.
