Super test for city athletes

Have your say

City of Sheffield field teams in both the men’s and women’s competition in the semi final of the British Athletics League “Super 8” Cup competition at York tomorrow (Sat).

The winners go through to the final in September together with the best of the runners up in the various regional semi finals.

Whilst the Sheffield men’s team is well below full strength, they look good enough to win and the women’s team should also do well.

The competing clubs are: Bingley, Chesterfield (men only), City of Sheffield, City of York, Glasgow, Leeds City.

Sheffield’s Mukhtar Mohammed, who won bronze at the European Under 23 Championships in the Czech Republic last weekend, was due to take part in the 800m but has decided to withdraw so he can concentrate on next weekend’s World Championship trials in Birmingham.
