Gold medal winning treble

Hercules Wimbledon Athletic Club athletes posted a hat-trick of gold medal-winning performances at the second part of the Surrey track and field championships at the David Weir Leisure Centre, Sutton, over the weekend.

It proved third time lucky for 3000m steeplechaser Rob Tuer who managed to take the gold medal in the senior Surrey championship after finishing third in 2012 and second in 2013. His winning time of 10 minutes 14.69 seconds was also the fastest of his three county medal-winning performances, reports Tom Pollak.

Race walker Tor-Ivar Guttulsrod also won his first Surrey title as he took the 3000m track gold medal in 15:26.74. He actually won the event 12 months ago but was unable to take the Surrey gold medal as he had missed the entry deadline and therefore competed as a guest in the event.
