At the championships he kept calm in a high class field and won the race in a sprint finish with a time of 3.40.53. Afterwards, he said:” I timed it to perfection. I came here to try and get a medal, so I’m happy to come away with gold.” Crorken is now aiming for the European U23 Championships, which will be held in Tallinn, Estonia, from 15-18 July.
