CASTLEFORD athlete Christopher Price won a gold medal in the 3,000 metres steeplechase at the England Athletics Championships in Birmingham which incorporated this year’s North of England Championships.

At rain soaked Alexander Stadium, Price (pictured) produced a sub 68 second penultimate lap to pass four athletes to win.

Price was delighted to finally win the championship that has eluded him in recent years.

He said: “To finally get a Northof England medal is fantastic. People can talk about history and times, but it is about winning championships. It is testament to my effort over the last 12 months to get back into condition.”
