Angie Copson, Ros Tabor and Darren Scott among athletes who will compete at Lee Valley this weekend
Current world and European medallists dominate the entry lists for this weekend’s British Masters Indoor Championships.
Some of those competing at Lee Valley on March 7-8 have already set world indoor records this winter en route to the European Indoor Masters in Poland later this month.
Darren Scott broke the European M45 200m best with 22.58 last month and was part of a 4x200m world record squad.
W60 Caroline Powell set a 400m record of 64.76 last winter and is already down to 65.02 this season. She seeks further improvement as she is up against Helen Godsell in the sprints.
Since turning 60, Ros Tabor has battled with multiple world record-holder Angie Copson. However, now that they are both in the W65 class, Tabor has moved down in distance and over the shorter races has the measure of her rival, who still dominates in the longer events.
In the 60m hurdles, Joe Appiah has already shown good M40 form this winter.
Also in action will be Mark Johnson, who set a British M50 indoor pole vault record of 4.54m at Carshalton last month.
The championships also include an outdoor winter throws meeting where javelin, discus, hammer and heavy weight are on offer.
The walkers have two events and Francisco Reis (M50) and Ian Richards (M65) are the stand out athletes here.
