Trackspeed1 UK's Kieran Daly is fast becoming the dark horse of British sprinting, and that claim was underlined at Bedford today (Sunday 22nd) as he claimed his second England national under-23's title in 24 hours. (Video of yesterday's 100m now above)
|Double gold - Kieran Daly is all smiles at Bedford |
after securing both England National under-23 sprint titles.
Daly clocked 21.07 seconds ahead of former training partner Edmond Amaning, who could only manage 21.34s in second. Now his focus will be on recovery over the next few days as he prepares for another huge weekend. The British Championships and European Championship trials begin on Friday night.

"It's been a great weekend though, and thoroughly deserved by the athlete. It's also been quite funny at times, because his 100 metres time was a UK top ten performance up there with the likes of Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, Richard Kilty and Danny Talbot, and yet most people don't have a clue who he is. Well they do now!"
