Congratulations to Great Britain’s women’s team for winning gold at the European Cross Country Championships in Belgrade yesterday.
28 year old Gemma Steel won the individual silver medal after finishing four seconds behind France’s Sophie Duarte; an improvement on her bronze medal achieved in 2011. Steel’s strong performance came at the end of an impressive year for the Charnwood Athletic Club runner, during which she became only the ninth UK woman to run 10km in under 32 minutes. She ran Sunday’s 8km course in just 26 minutes 39 seconds.
Charlotte Purdue, 22, won bronze in the women’s under-23s, while Emelia Gorecka, 19, won individual gold in the last race of her junior career.

It’s not very often we get invited to the cinema, let alone a film premier at Leicester Square but last week Ansell’s attended the first showing of a mountain epic documentary called “The Last Great Climb”. Set in Queen Maud Land, Antartica, the film follows mountain adventurer, Leo Houlding (you can follow Leo on twitter @leohoulding) and his team as they become the first climbers to summit Ulvetanna.
The 2,930m granite peak is widely considered to be the most demanding peak on the harshest continent – and has been described as one of the last great climbs.
On reaching the summit, leader Leo commented: “We have just completed the first ascent of one of the world’s last great climbs and are all suitably psyched.
“A decade of dreaming, a year of planning, a month on the ice, and a week on the wall and we have done it. It’s a dream come true.”
The film is amazing, powerful stuff and for all you climbers out there, a true inspiration. With sheer grit, determination and skill, it just shows what can be achieved.
As Leo’s insurer, we are immensely proud of him.
