HUNTS Athletic Club continued their excellent start to the season, with a haul of 12 gold medals at the Cambridgeshire County Championships on Saturday. Star performers for the club included Christian Roberts, who easily won the U20 men's 800m, setting a personal best. Roberts became the second athlete at the club to clock under two minutes for the distance, despite coming under little pressure while winning by 20 seconds. Hard work paid off when Matt Leadbitter, who only returned to the track last September after being out of the sport for over two years, claimed second place in the 400m. He has undergone a hard winter of training, including intensive circuit and weight training, hill running, and even pulling tyres around the running track to build strength and stamina. Leadbitter has set personal bests already this season and finished just 0.6secs behind Irish international runner Tom Carey on Saturday. Wayne Dubose, who coaches Roberts and Leadbitter, hailed their achievements and said the best may be yet to come.
