Paul Durrant, Property Manager (Humber) preparing for Team GB
Associated British Ports (ABP) is delighted to be supporting a member of the Humber Property team in their quest for medals with Team GB.
Paul Durrant, Property Manager (Humber) heads to Poland for his first sprint race of the season at the end of the month.
ABP has sponsored his Great Britain running kit, and Poland is the first of three planned athletics events in 2023, culminating in the European Master Athletics Championships in Italy in September.
Simon Bird, Regional Director for the Humber ports said: “We’re delighted to be supporting our colleague Paul in his quest for Team GB and we’ll be cheering him on.”
Paul, who has always been very sporty, took up sprinting in 2021. He added: “I’d concentrated mainly on half marathons and 10ks but decided to join the local sprint team and get some proper coaching.
“I’d always harboured a desire to represent Great Britain and through the Master Athletics I have found my opportunity. I’m thoroughly looking forward to these events and hopefully my efforts will inspire others.”
The World Masters Athletics Championships will be held from 27 to 29 March in Torun, Poland and Paul is entered in the 60m indoor sprint for his age group.
Paul, who lives near Grimsby, will also be competing at the European Master Athletics Games (100m) in Finland, and the European Master Athletics Championship (100m) in Italy.
