in the Surrey County AA 100m senior men's 100m final at Kingston
Winds have been the curse of early season competitions for Trackspeed1-UK athletes, and the sprints at Kingston's Kingsmeadow stadium were no different. Wind speeds fluctuated but all the sprints faced a headwind of anything up to and beyond 3 metres per second.

Murray on the medal rostrum in Kingston
Calvin Kirstein was outside the medals in the Sussex 100m final in fourth, but was involved in a gold medal performance in the 4x100m relay, where his Eastbourne Rovers quartet set a new club record. Ishmael Smith-John won silver in the Kent 200m at Ashford despite a gale blowing him backwards in the final.
Twenty-four hours before Hylton and Murray took to the tartan in Kingston, Trackspeed-UK's Cameron Starr took silver in the 200m senior men's final clocking 21.99s amid another swirling wind. Niclas Baker took bronze in the Middlesex 200m final at Lee Valley - again into a huge headwind - with training partner Jerome Lule in fifth to make it six medals out of eight performances for the squad over the weekend.
