In the men’s race, Ralph Street followed up his Sprint race result with a good run in the Middle Distance finishing in 14th place. 

Ralph said after his race:  “I made no big mistakes but got a bit frustrated because I made lots of really small 5 /10s errors.  Not a bad run!”

Peter Hodkinson finished up in 23rd place.

Peter said after his race:  “I was pleased with my run but I was feeling yesterday’s big effort in the Sprint.”

Ed Nicholas, Team Manager said:  “Both Ralph and Peter are feeling good about tomorrow and hopefully they can rest well this evening. Overall it sounded like the course felt longer than normal with some steep climbs and tough going through the dense parts.”

The World Games Middle distance competitions were held in Trzebnica, Poland today.
