Veteran Jacqui Hodgson (v/45) made the trip over to Aarhus, Denmark, to run in the European Masters Athletic T & F Championships targeting her two main events, the
400m & 200m. Her first event on the programme was the heats of the 400m where she
finished 2nd recording 65.69, to qualify for the semi-final later that day, and ran very
well to finish 5th recording 63.63, but missed out on the Final. Three days later, Jacqui
ran in the heats of the 200m and finished 3rd recording 28.17, and again qualified for the
semi-finals the following day, where she finished 7th recording 28.57, but again missed
out to reach the Final. However, Jacqui did not return empty handed as she was
selected for the GB Team for the (4x100m) & (4x400m) Relays, and was delighted to win Bronze Medals in both Races.
