Successful return to action for Jacqui Hodgson
After spending most of the summer having to nurse a troublesome achilles tendon niggle, Jacqui Hodgson’s training programme started to bear fruit when she was able to retain her British Masters 400m title in the W45 category at Birmingham on July 26th. This performance hinted that her injury worries were behind her and that she could travel to Lyon for the World Masters Championships (August 10-16) with increased confidence.
