Double Gold for Ben at the SIAB's

Ben Dijkstra won another gold at the SIAB Home Countries International on Saturday 23rd March which was held at Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo, Wales.

Ben commanded the race and the confident youngster finished with a 12 second advantage over second placed Tom Dodd with his winning time of 13.56.

Ben had been selected, along with his team mate Alfie Thompson, in the Junior Boys age group after both boys finished in the top 8 at the English School's Championships the previous week at Catton Hall , Derbyshire.

Both boys had a great race with Alfie taking 8th place and meaning that England secured the overall team gold medal.

Congratulations to both boys on their tremendous cross country season!
