South West Cross Country Championships
Sunday, 9 January 2011
The South West Cross Country Championships were held last Sunday in perfect sunny conditions on the beautiful but challenging lakeside course at Bicton College in Devon. Competing for Cornwall against top athletes from across the South West were two junior members from Gyllyngvase Surf Life Saving Club.
In the U15 girls event, Issy Steele scored an emphatic win to add to her recent victory at the Cornish Championships. Strategically holding position on the shoulder of the early leader, Issy stepped up to take a commanding lead after the first circuit and continued to pull away from the field for the rest of the race. The impressive result was especially notable since this was only Issy’s second competitive cross country race.
In the U13’s, Charlotte Emsden ran a brave race finishing well within the top half of the field.
Both girls are now looking forward to the Cornish schools event in two weeks time and hopefully to selection for the National Championships in Birmingham on 5 March.

Well done to all who took part in the 3rd annual Iceberg Challenge on New Years day. It was certainly lot colder this year, with a chilly 4 degress (usually 9-10). Most people lasted around 10 seconds, but the winner were Charlie, Izzy and Michelle who stayed in the freezing waters a fantastic 20 minutes!
We even made the front page of the West Briton. (06.01.11)
