OJIE EDOBURUN PIPS RIVALS TO BRITISH 100m TITLE – The following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.
The men’s 100m on day one of the Müller British Athletics Championships was so close to call that the winner, OJIE EDOBURUN, did not know he had won for a few moments after the race. The 23-year-old was given exactly the same time of (10.18 -1.9m/sec) as ADAM GEMILI and ZHARNEL HUGHES but after a short, tense delay he was given the verdict over his more favoured rivals. ZHARNEL is the fastest British sprinter this year with (9.95), while GEMILI has run (10.04) but OJIE, whose season’s best is (10.08), turned the form book on its head to win gold. “I was getting ready to say ‘well done, ADAM’. But it came up as me being the winner and it was such an emotional moment.” A brilliant junior talent, OJIE won the European under-20 100m title in 2015 and under-23 title in 2017 but has struggled to make an impact in the senior ranks. However, he says a change of coach to STEVE FUDGE together with an emphasis on sports psychology to iron out demons and improve his pre-race confidence have helped him move on to a new level. “People often think seeing a sports psychologist is a sign of weakness but I think it shows you are doing something to become stronger,” he explained. On the evidence of Saturday’s 100m at Alexander Stadium, he has a point and will now go to the IAAF World Championships in Doha along with fellow automatic qualifier GEMILI aiming to at least make the final.
SHAFTESBURY SUPPORTERS AT THE BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS – Shaftesbury athletes had not only received vocal support from two of our top young athletes KACEY WALTERS and EVELYNE FONTEYNE, they also managed to seek out the BRITISH MASCOT, ADAM GEMLLI and KATARINA JOHNSON-THOMPSON which as you can see by the excellent photographs.

HELEN ISAACS TOP SUPERFAN/SUPPORTER – The following article was written by ROSALIND ZEFFERTT and subsequently published in the Jewish Chronicle on Friday 23 August.
If there were national rankings for athletics superfans, the name HELEN ISAACS would surely be high up on the list. Not only is HELEN a busy sports volunteer, but she has been to every Olympic Games since Barcelona in 1992. “I always liked athletics at school and competed in the throws in borough events, but that wasn’t really the start of it,” recalled HELEN, originally from northwest London and a member of Stanmore Liberal Synagogue before moving to Watford. “My mum and dad loved watching the Olympics, and the image of MARY PETERS winning the pentathlon in 1972 stayed with me for a long time.”
Helen, 56, was working as a retail merchandiser in 1991 when a chance conversation with a colleague about athletics eventually resulted in the two taking a road trip to Barcelona, and the pattern was set. So when London was awarded the Olympics, naturally Helen wanted to be involved. She juggled rehearsals for the opening and closing ceremonies with a six-month stint as a Games Maker, working in uniform distribution. “It was the longest voluntary role,“ said HELEN, “so we set the tone for the Games. We did all we could to create a great experience for everyone.”
Over the past year, HELEN has taken her volunteering to another level, qualifying as a field judge for Shaftesbury Harriers. “I was about to take early retirement after 33 years in retail, and I was looking for opportunities to do more in athletics than be a spectator,” she said. ”I knew the club, but it had never occurred to me to officiate for them until someone suggested it. I did my first meeting within a couple of weeks, and I absolutely loved it.”
She decided to specialise in field judging as she was already familiar with the javelin, shot and discus afrom her schooldays. “With officiating, I enjoy the variety of roles you get with each of the jumps and throws, and it’s exciting to know that I could be witnessing the next DALEY THOMPSON or JESSICA ENNIS. I feel privileged to work closely with athletes of all ages competing and performing at their very best. By the end of this season I will have my next field qualification, and I see myself continuing in athletics for a long time.”
It has been a little while since HELEN last took part in athletics as a competitor, but she is a keen open water swimmer and also holds a teaching assistant qualification for swimming. As the outdoor athletics season draws to a close, she is looking forward to volunteering at next month’s Para Swimming Championships, an event hastily moved to London after the original hosts, Malaysia, refused to allow the Israeli team to compete.
Also high on HELEN’S agenda is, of course, her trip to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which she is currently planning with the same retail colleague who has accompanied her to the last seven Olympic Games (ARIT ANDERSON, now a presenter on the BBC’s Gardener’s World).
Despite having volunteered for many other sports events such as the Canoe Slalom World Cup and the Cricket World Cup, HELEN acknowledges that the Olympics is behind it all. “Without my experience at the London 2012 and the network it created, I wouldn’t have found out about all the other volunteering opportunities. That’s the legacy of the Olympics.”
TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPICS SELECTION POLICY – The following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

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.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward.
