ATHLETICS: Treadwell bags title double
OXFORD City’s Roy Treadwell completed a national veteran double with victory in Glasgow’s Pollock Park.
Treadwell took vet 65 gold in the British Masters Athletic Federation (BMAF) 10K road race championships after holding off a strong finish from Robert Marshall (Morpeth Harriers).
The 66-year-old won the BMAF cross country title for his age group at Sunderland in March and showed his versatility with a road win this time.
Treadwell clocked 39mins 23secs to Marshall’s 39.41.
Fellow Oxford City athlete John Exley took an early lead, but was passed by Treadwell after 800m and finished fourth in 40.59.
Treadwell and Exley are now both hoping to make the England vet 65 team for November’s British and Irish Cross Country International in Cardiff.
