Challenge meeting 3 brought about some excellent results for Rush Athletic Club. One of the most impressive results for sure was from our Sarah Busuttil in the 100m and 200m sprint double open category, winning them both and also qualifying for the Championships of the Small States of Europe. Our other Sarah, Sarah Chouhal, impressed with her 400m, managing a nearly half second personal best and ranking her on top of 400m runners so far.
