European Cross Country Championships – Velenje, Slovenia 11th Dec 2011

The two James’s, Walsh & Wilkinson, did Club and Country proud, representing Great Britain in Slovenia today.

As many club members will have witnessed, either on the BBC or the live stream on the European Athletics website, both lads claimed a team Silver medal in the Senior and U23 races respectively.

Individually, James Walsh worked his way steadily through the Senior field to finish a fine 15th and James Wilkinson scored a fantastic Silver medal, finishing just 3 seconds behind the French winner in the U23 race.
