City of Norwich athletics trio impress in the USA

Three City of Norwich athletes are making an impact on the American university scene.

James McLachlan is proving his worth to Loyala University, Chicago when competing indoors at Bloomington, Indiana where he won the long jump with a season's best 7.25m.

Fellow club member Ruth Senior was also treading the indoor boards in Albuquerque. Competing for New Mexico University she produced a new indoor best over 3,000m, with an impressive win in nine minutes 31.16 seconds.

Endurance club-mate Mitch Goose, based at Iona University, New York, tested himself in what he termed as a 'rust busting' 3,000m in Boston.

Somewhat inexperienced on the indoor boards he was pleased to produce a new best indoor and outdoor when recording 8:10.79, a time that knocked almost nine seconds of his previous best.
