ROSALIND ZEFFERTT ENJOYING THE HIGH LIFE – The following article was published in the Jewish Chronicle, and written by BRIAN SACHS and ROGER BRUCK.
ROSALIND’S pole vault clearance of (2.10m) at the LICC meeting at Allianz Park, equalling her personal best, has reinforced her position at the top of the UK V55 rankings.
But the most remarkable aspect of this achievement is that Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers athlete ZEFFERTT only tackled the event for the first time a few months ago.
She is now a regular at Pole Vault training twice a week and is already looking forward to next year with an eye on the European Indoors Masters.
Competing prolifically in a variety of track and field events throughout the summer outdoor season, ROSALIND is also high in the national age-group rankings for 100m, 200m, Long Jump, Triple Jump and High Jump.
As well as participating, ROSALND is also a qualified official. Originally a track judge, she recently began to specialise as a starters assistant, mentored by this year’s Anniversary Games start referee GERALD ALTERMAN.
“I started officiating a year after the London Olympics,” said ROSALIND. “Not having done any athletics since school, it seemed like a good way to become involved again without actually having to run around. But after a while I realised it looked like fun so I started Long Jump and sprint training in 2014, gradually trying out other events too.”
“The trouble with being an older athlete is that you tend to get injured more easily, so I had to give up the throws pretty quickly. But I love all the other events, especially the Pole Vault, and the club has been really supportive.”

SBH TROPHIES FOR 2018 – Will all athletes who received a trophy at the SBH Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 27 November 2018 or during the following weeks, please return your trophy to GEOFF MORPHITISat Allianz Park.

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
