FRINTON’S Jordan Rowe avenged his only defeat of the cross-country season to win the biggest race of his career.

The 17-year-old lost his unbeaten tag at the English Cross-Country Championships when he was beaten by rival Zak Miller.

But Rowe got his own back and delivered his own knock-out blow to the international cross-country runner and former English champion boxer Miller to win the under-17 men’s UK Intercounties Cross-Country crown.

“It feels good to know that it’s now 1-1,” said Rowe, who runs for Colchester Harriers.

“I knew it would be closer this time.

“I had prepared better. I knew I could do it and I was really looking forward to the race.

“It’s the biggest win I have ever had and I’m just so happy.”
