Gayter seeking to clear the air
Evening Standard 27/03/03
In an effort to combat London's pollution, distance
specialist Sharon Gayter has started wearing a face mask as the
five competitors approach the 600 mile point.
Guisborough in north Yorkshire, is the only challenger with asthma
and since the early stages she has suffered breathing problems brought
on by car exhaust fumes and the cold nights.
She is now finding
the going a little bit easier, but, unfortunately, Rory Coleman
is starting to suffer as the event takes its toll.
of the most confident challengers, Coleman is now suffering from
blisters on the soles of his feet.
As a result,
he was forced to limp several miles overnight in great discomfort.
With the competitors
still having 400 miles to go until they reach their goal, Coleman
is now having to be very careful.
