Andrew Butchart celebrates with his parents

Central’s Andrew Butchart tasted GB success as he led the British Senior Men’s team to gold in the European Cross Country Championships in Lisbon.

Andrew made a significant personal contribution to the team victory for the British Senior Men. He started conservatively and worked his way through the field to be in the hunt for an individual podium place until the latter stages – but ultimately had to settle for fifth place, covering the demanding 10.25 kilometre course in 30 minutes 38 seconds. Andrew led his team home to the championship win by just two points from Belgium, with 36 points to 38, as Spain took the bronze medals.
