Double gold for Matt Hudson-Smith at the European Championships

August 25th 2022, 9:00:00 am

Individual gold and relay gold means Matt Hudson-Smith now has the set from the three major championships this summer.


After a bronze at the World Championships and silver at the Commonwealth Games Matt Hudson-Smith finally got his gold medal in the 400m at the European Championships.

Matt has had the most successful summer of his career and topped it off with a very dominant performance in Munich to successfully defend his European title. It was great to see him on top of the podium after all his hard work this year.

To put the icing on the cake of his 2022 season Matt was also part of the gold medal winning 4 x 400m team and on this occasion he was also joined by fellow Stag, Rio Mitcham, who was part the the team that qualified for the final.,

Our congratulations go to Matt and we look forward to seeing how much faster he can go in 2023.
