Virginia is on her way to Beijing

What an achievement for our Head Coach, Virginia Mitchell; she is on her way to Bejing to compete in an Exhibition race for Masters Athletes at the World Championships. ViGetsSilver

Virginia won a Silver Medal in the W50 400m last week at the World Masters Championships in Lyon, missing gold by just .26sec.  Next Saturday she will line up alongside the fastest W50 400m athletes in the world who have been invited by the IAAF to participate in an exhibition race at the Worlds Championships in the Birds Nest Stadium in Bejing.

Her event is at 5:30pm Bejing time (10:30am here) and we are hoping to see her on the BBC’s TV coverage.  We are all wishing her Good Luck.
