A duo of Epsom & Ewell Harriers veteran athletes have returned from the European Track & Field Championships in Izmir, Turkey, with a triple haul of medals.

Sue Dassie was part of the triumphant W60 4x100m relay team, clocking one minute 0.07 seconds to take the gold.

The quartet finished more than five seconds ahead of runners-up Germany, and 15 seconds ahead of bronze medallist Russia.

Clubmate Terry Bissett won silver in the M70 100m - his time at the tape (13.87 seconds) was only 0.11 seconds behind Ulf Restle of Germany at the top of the podium.

Bissett was also a runner-up to a German sprinter in the M70 200m, this time missing out to Friedhelm Adorf by 0.25 seconds, having finished in 28.51.
