“The Magnificent Seven” including a weekend sequel, summarised the performance of Coventry Godiva Harriers at the 2017 Warwickshire track and field championship. A club endurance squad of 25, recorded a middle distance medal haul of - a fabulous 7 golds, a supporting 7 silver and a quintet of bronze medals, reinforced with at least a score of personal best performances.
Staged in conjunction with the Leicestershire AA champs, blustery winds continued to blast across the Pingles Stadium, Nuneaton all weekend long, adding a further tactical consideration for the athlete trying to finish as high as possible in their individual race.
It was pleasing to see so many Godiva athletes taking full advantage of this event; developing their championship racing experience, dominating the middle distance races with a flurry of club vests and then standing on the podium.
