I think you'll well on your way to get a clean sweep of the golds. Presume that gold is the top level? What would Dean n Dachs be on there
Certainly hope so - but no, gold is "third" standard really. It goes bronze, silver, gold, platinum, world.
Without checking PBs etc. I'd guess that Dachs would be platinum and Dean would be World (being a World bronze medallist and all...).
I haven't seen anyone get platinum for anything yet at our club. A V60 was at the 3,000m with me last week and missed platinum by 5 seconds for his age but that's about as close as anyone's got I think. Hardly anyone under 40 ever gets gold standard either, so would be great to do that. And who knows, as I'm only 34, I might manage to get to platinum before I'm 40...
As for the marathoners - great stuff! Superb times all round - well done Dachs, Reg and Philip. It was a bloody good watch on the telly too. Big performances from my fellow Scotsmen especially. Callum Hawkins completely smashed it. He's only going to get better.
