ALICIA Tymon-McEwan knocked almost two tenths of a second off her 60m hurdles personal best as the St Albans AC athlete secured the gold medal at the South of England Indoor championships at the Lee Valley Indoor Athletics centre on Saturday.
Competing in the U15s Girls category, Tymon-McEwan recorded a time of 9.25 secs and reversed form with Morgan Lake, from the Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow club, who had beaten her at a warm-up meeting earlier this month.
The performance places Tymon-McEwan top of the indoor rankings so far this year and makes her one of the main contenders for the National Championships which take place in Birmingham at the end of next month.
The winning performance was the highlight of the efforts from St Albans AC athletes in the first major competition of the year.
Other creditable efforts came from Jake Awe (U17s 200m) and Catherine Mackintosh (U17s 1,500m), who both finished fifth in their respective finals, plus semi-finalists Christian Gaddes (U17s 60m hurdles), Carl Palin (U17s 200m) and Luke Yaxley (U17s 60m hurdles and 200m).
Awe, Gaddes and Yaxley all did enough to join Tymon-McEwan at the National Championships.
