NEW CLUB RECORD – Congratulations to DARYLL NEITA who equalled the Under 23 100m club record (11.20) in winning the England U23 Championships at Bedford on 17 June. The current club record (11.20) is held by fellow Olympian ABI OYEPITAN which was set in Beijing, China on 27 August 2001.
ABI made the Olympic 200m final in 2004 to become the first British woman since KATHY COOK in 1984 to reach those stages, where she finished seventh in the final.

What an outstanding week-end for Shaftesbury with 43 athletes contesting the UK Championships, of these DAN BRAMBLE, JADE LALLY and NICK PERCY stood on the winner’s rostrum. We also had five Silver Medallists DARRYL NEITA, DAVID SMITH, NATHAN FOX, ZANE DUQUEMIN and JO BLAIR, and four Bronze Medallists KYLE LANGFORD, SEB RODGER, NONSO OKOLO and SHADINE DUQUEMIN.

In the Long Jump DAN set the mark with first jump, a season’s best (8.02m w2.1), the remaining jumpers new they had their backs to the wall, FERON SAYERS won the Silver Medal in the third-round with (7.95m), in the fifth-round DAN produced another (8.02m w-0.7). His record since 2011 is impressive, winning in 2015, also two second’s and one third place finish.

The Discus is an event Shaftesbury have dominated over the years, with JADE LALLY retaining her Women’s UK title, and since 2009 JADE has won 7 UK titles in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and was second placed in 2012 and 2014. JADE’S opening throw (52.73m) which was the distance KIRSTY LAW the Silver Medallist threw, in the fifth-round JADE secured her win with (58.14m). SHADINE DUQUEMIN opened her competition with (46.96m), then two foul throws followed, the fourth-round proved decisive throwing a season’s best (51.31m) and won the Bronze Medal.

The Men’s Discus final featured 4 Shaftesbury athletes, in which NICK PERCY retained his title with a throw of (60.78m), ZANE DUQUEMIN following his 3rd place last year he moved up one place to finish 2nd (60.36m).

WORLD UPGRADES FOR 4x400m WOMEN’S TEAM – Shaftesbury’s LEE MCCONNELL who was a member of the GB&NI 4x400m relay team in the 2009 World Championships in Athens, and 2011 in Daegu, South Korea are set to be promoted from fourth to third place, after ANASTASIYA KAPACHINSKAYA – part of the Russian relay team – had all her results annulled from 2008 due to doping.

LEE started off her athletics career with Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers in 1997 as an Under 19 High Jumper, achieving her personal best in 2000 with a height of (1.88m) which is still the current SBH club record. The following year she switched to the 400m where she made rapid progression. In 2002, she won individual medals at the Commonwealth Games 400m Silver in Manchester and European Championships 400m Bronze in Munich, and was fourth in the World Cup in Madrid, setting a lifetime best of 50.82 also the current SBH club record. The following season she enhanced her reputation as being a championship performer by reaching the final at the World Championships in Paris, placing seventh.
After reaching the semi-finals at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, she decided to switch to the 400m hurdles but despite having the potential to be a world-class exponent at that discipline, the switch did not fully materialise but LEE did win a 2006 Commonwealth bronze medal in Melbourne, setting a lifetime best of 55.25.
LEE remained an invaluable member of the British 4x400m, greatly contributing to successive bronze medal winning performances at the 2005 World Championships in Helsinki and 2007 in Osaka, but she was not fit for the 2008 Olympic Games 4x400m relay in Beijing, having to withdraw through injury. 2009 started off well for her, but injury curtailed her performances and although a member of the 4x400m relay squad at the World Championships in Athens, it was not until her last race of the season in the Shanghai Grand Prix that she managed to run somewhere near her potential with a 400m season’s best of (51.45).
2010 started brightly with a convincing win in the European Championships Trials at Birmingham (51.55), but a below-par run in the championships in Barcelona where she finished in fourth place in her heat, then went on to win a 4x400m bronze medal. At the end of the year LEE ran the 200m/400m at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, finishing 5th & 4th respectively.
The following 2 years she reached the semi-final of the 2011World Championships in Daegu, South Korea and the 2012 London Olympics Games.
LEE final race of her career was winning the Scottish National 200m Senior title in February 2013.
