"God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast and when I run, I feel his pleasure."

Eric Liddell in Chariots of Fire

Great City Games

I love the Manchester Great City Games, where they build a track in the middle of the city and do pole vault and long jump in a big square. The event always attracts a world class field. And if that is not enough the Great Manchester Run on Sunday morning includes at least three London Marathon winners.

Among the City Games winners were:

Long Jump: Greg RUTHERFORD 8.20
150 metres: Harry AIKINES-ARYEETEY 15.10
T44 100 metres: Jarryd WALLACE 10.92
100 metres hurdles: Tiffany PORTER 12.89
100 Metres women : Dafne SCHIPPERS 10.94
100 metres men: Kim COLLINS 10.08
