Yesterday (19th May 2019) saw Coventry Godiva’s first Midland league track and field fixture for the season.
After promotion from Division 3 the previous season, Division 2 was looking to provide a higher standard of competition.
On paper Godiva looked doomed from the outset, with a team of about 19 athletes and only 6 of those being female did not look good. Having lost 2 good athletes to compete at the Loughborugh International (3 if you also include their Coach who is one of our top 400m runners).
However, with the majority of athletes pulling together and covering multiple events, Godiva finished a convincing 3rd overall on the day!
This was helped by the fact that for the ladies the fewest events anyone covered was 4. And mixed with some good wins in both male and female events lead to Godiva having a strong start to the season!
Official results are still be waiting for (keep eyes peeled here for prizes etc.)
The next date for your diaries is: Sunday 16th of June for a HOME FIXTURE!
