Axe Valley runner, David Cooke had an outstanding week at the 24th edition of the World Masters Athletics Outdoor Championships held earlier this month in Tampere, Finland. Conditions were very hot with many of the events at the start of the week taking place in excess of 30° C. In his strongest event, the 400m, Cooke came sixth in the M65 final in a superb time of 61:55, his fastest time since 2008 and a new south-west regional record. It also places him ninth on the UK all time M65 list. Cooke, who also reached the 200m and 800m final, represented the Great Britain and Northern Ireland team in both 4 x100m and 4 x 400m relays with the team coming away with the Gold medal in both events.
