QUEEN'S Park Harriers' European Championship hopeful Rahimullah Wahedi lowered his personal best again at the Lea Valley Stadium open meeting on Saturday.

The QPH sprinter, who has only been running for six months, recorded 50.54 seconds over 400m at Lea Valley - more than half a second quicker than his previous best at the Middlesex Championships earlier this month.

Wahedi has until the end of next week to hit 50 seconds - the qualifying time for the European under-20 Championships, which take place in Kaunas, Lithuania, in July.

A sizeable QPH contingent are expected to travel to Eltham on Wednesday night and support their team-mate, who was attempting another bid to achieve the qualifying time there.

MICHAEL Dmitrzak was the fastest QPH runner to finish the Sudbury Court 10k race, clocking an impressive time of 38 minutes and one second for fifth place.

Brendan Greene was close behind Dmitrzak in eighth place (38:25), with Jonathan Ainsworth 17th (41:56) and Frank Nolan 23rd (43:04).

Also completing the course for QPH were James Walerych (46th, 28:16), Bill O'Connor (87th, 57:54), John Walerych Sr (92nd, 1:01:30), Doddridge Benjamin (109th, 1:10:41), Shigan Soni (110th, 1:11:19) and Harold Lisk.
