Eurpean Indoor Championships - Updated

Both Sarah Claxton and Nick Leavey were in action today in Turin during  the first day's action of the European Indoor Championships. Olympic finalist over 100mH, Sarah Claxton was in scintillating form in the 60mH qualification as she equalled her own British Record of 7.96 secs in the semis to qualify fastest for the final. However Sarah could not repeat that form in the final as she finished a disappointed 8th in 8.21 secs. Nick Leavey just missed out on a final place in the 400m as he placed 4th in his semi-final with 47.93 secs, having qualified comfortably from his heat earlier with 47.19 secs. Nick was back in action on Sunday to claim a silver medal as a member of the GB 4x400m team that placed 2nd, contributing a fine 46.65 secs second leg.
