Welbro’s own Tracy Bezance is celebrating, having recently represented Great Britain in the European Masters Games Athletics Championships in Turin, Italy. Tracy has been training hard in the build-up to these European finals, and all of that hard work and discipline has paid off. Tracy will return to the UK after some well-earned rest, having won not one, not two, but three Gold Medals!
Tracy won both the 200m and 400m, before success in the 300m Hurdles. The 400m is widely recognised as the hardest of the sprints, but Tracy trounced the competition, finishing over three seconds ahead of the second-place runner. She posted an excellent time of 1:05:83. Her time for the 200m was an impressive 28:06 seconds, so close to a sub-28 second time.
Tracy was accompanied by her partner Mark, who was also competing at Turin in the men’s competition. Mark qualified for the finals in both the 100m and the 200m, picking up a Bronze medal in each. So with a combined total of five medals, this couple will be bringing home some precious souvenirs from their Italian adventure.
This performance has boosted Tracy’s confidence, and her sights must now be set on the Master World Championships in Toronto Canada in 2020.
