8 May 2022- British Masters Pentathlon, Oxford

 


Alex Pope, Clem Leon, Blair Wilson, Ian Firla

With multi events becoming more popular largely thanks to an excellent coaching set up and grassroots program it was great to see a good representation for Blackheath and Bromley in the British Masters Pentathlon Championship at the weekend with Alex Pope and Blair Wilson representing the club in the M35, Ian Firla in the M50 and Clem Leon in the M65.

In the M35s after a strong start by Alex, his campaign for a medal was sadly ended by injury before the two track events, both left to the end due to a scheduling issue. This schedule played out well for Blair who had been consistent throughout the competition. A strong win in the 1500m with a big gap between him and reigning jumps champion Dan Brown from Salisbury ARC currently in second place awarded Blair the silver medal and a club record for the event.

The other medal for Blackheath and Bromley was won by Clem Leon in the over 65s who narrowly missed out on gold by just 87 points from Alan Redman of Houghton Harriers. A fantastic effort from one of the most consistent performers all day, beating most of the guys in the age category below him as well earned him a Silver.

A very strong performance and a club record for Ian Firla in the M50s in a tough field saw him come forth, more to come from Ian in the future as multi-eventing is relatively new to him.

Up the 'heath,

Blair Wilson
