MANX 20KM WALK – 8 MAY 2003

RESULTS FROM BRIDGET KANEEN
Peter Kaneen on his way to victory in the Manx 20km walk on Wednesday night. Les Brown and Robert Moore are in the background.
The closest and biggest battle was between Guernsey man (!) Terry Bates, Marie Latham, Bridget Kaneen and John Stubbs.
A couple of laps later Marie has fallen behind (after her shoe laces came undone), and John has also fallen a few steps behind. Callum Taylor and Emma Latham form the sandwich between Terry and Bridget.
Bridget went on to take 4th overall and by 23.10 she had emailed the results to me (and others). Amazing.
If you study the results however you will note that Terry faded badly, was passed by John and Marie and was also a mere 2 seconds behind Les Brown at the finish. I’m sorry I missed that part.
NO WONDER EMMA IS SMILING – SHE HAS BEEN SELECTED TO REPRESENT ENGLAND IN THE WALKING INTERNATIONAL IN DUBLIN NEXT MONTH.
Callum Taylor looks equally relaxed.

Apart from the first lap, when he was behind Allan Callow, Irish visitor Fergal Tansey was in second throughout.
IOMAA Chairman Allan Callow in agony as ever but good enough for third still (and he is older than his number!)
