Chalmers races to 400m British title, Europe next


Guernsey athlete Cameron Chalmers won his first senior British title yesterday as he claimed the indoor 400m gold medal in a new lifetime best.

The 22-year-old, who won the race in a personal best of 46.26, will represent Great Britain at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow next month on the back of his maiden British success.

 

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."
