VETERAN long-distance runner Bimlesh Kumar won three more silver medals at the Oceania Masters Championship in Bendigo, Australia yesterday.

The Jet Runners Club athlete came second to an Australian runner in the 1500m race to collect his third medal of the event on Friday and then was placed second in the steeplechase yesterday and was part of the Pacific Island team that came second in two medley relay events.

Club president Abinesh Kumar said Bimlesh continued to improve in the meet.

He said the 38-year-old was slowly returning to his form that made him a national champion in the country over a decade ago.

"He trained very hard for the meet and didn't just go there to make up the numbers," Kumar said.

"He now has five silver medals and a bronze in the competition.

"When he called me he said he was happy with his performance and the level of the competition."
