Speaking after the race, Chalmers said:
"This is well up there [with competing for Guernsey at the Commonwealth Games]. I've really wanted to win this race, I've come in second twice in the indoor trials final so to be champion is all I wanted. I hammered it to 200m and just tried to hang on, I didn't even know where he [the silver medallist, Owen Smith] was. I was tying up a little bit in the last 50m - I was just trying to pump my arms hard and hang on."
So so happy to earn my first Senior British title ???????????? Fantastic race ???????? https://t.co/qfyE9mwwqg— Cameron Chalmers (@CamChalmers400) 10 February 2019
