Drawn in the inside lane for the 200m, she negotiated the tight bends for another good third place with a season’s best time of 27.32s ,which ranks her third in the UK for her category. Later, she competed in the 4x200m relay helping the Eastern team to a great second place.
Mingay competed as a M60 in the 3000k, claiming a fantastic first place in a PB of 10.09.
