Georgina Outten (Birchfield Harriers) competed in Chia, confident after finishing as the second U23 athlete in the Trial race last month. The North Walian finished in 42nd place and much like Griffiths, earned a gold team medal in the process.

Team Leader Spencer Duval commented afterwards on the whole team’s medal winning performances: “We have a strong tradition at these Championships and we showed that once again today. We have some formidable teams here which can be seen by the fact that every team won a medal, including three golds''.
