James Young of Morpeth Harriers won a well-deserved gold medal in the Senior Men’s 800m
at the Northern Athletics Senior and Under 20 Track and Field Championships,
held at Sports City, Manchester over Saturday, and Sunday 9th and 10th June 2018.
After finishing second in his earlier run heat, where he posted a time of 1m56.43s,
he won his final in 1m54.33s, winning by a fraction of a second from Matthew Wigglesworth of Preston Harriers.
Fellow Morpeth Harrier Alistair Douglass was unlucky to go out
in the heats, despite clocking an excellent 1m55.77s.
