The Rio Olympian turned her attention to triathlon early in 2017 and has made remarkable progress over the past few months – while also being the best British performer at the World Champs Women’s 10,000m final. BETH still hopes to compete in the 10,000m in Australia, too.

Photograph is of BETH about to win the Cardiff Triathlon, following this she competed in the Funchal ETU Sprint Triathlon European Cup event in Portugal dominating the field over the closing 5km run to take victory.

Once on to the run, BETH was in her element and gaining ground with every stride. Producing a run split of 16:44, which was more than a minute quicker than anyone else, Potter cut through the field from ninth place starting the run to take the lead. Indeed, by the time she reached the finish line she had extended her advantage to a dominating margin of 43 seconds, over THERESE FEUERSINGER (AUT), who last week finishing fourth in the ITU World Junior Triathlon Championships.

DARYLL NEITA AN ATHLETE ON THE RISE – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.
Barely out of the junior ranks, DARYLL is already building an impressive sprints CV, writes Stuart Weir


No British Woman has ever reached the 100m final in the IAAF World Championships, so when DARYLL ran 11.16 to finish fourth in her semi-final in London in August, it represented the best performance ever by a GB athlete.
The 21-year-old first came to public attention when she finished second in the UK Championships and Olympic Trials in 2016. She recalls: “I would say I was a bit of an underdog going into the trials. No one expected me to come out where I did.
“But I decided a week before, ‘actually I do want to win this.’ So, I went into it thinking, ‘there is no reason why I can’t do well at the trials.’ “I went into it feeling confident and actually wanting to win it.”
She ran a PB of 11.23 to clinch second place. She added: “I shocked a lot of people because people did not know my capability and especially running under pressure. And I proved to myself that I could do it.”
Young talent DARYLL started running at a very young age and was spotted in a primary school sports day in year 6. Her mum tells a story of how she was running in a park with her cousins. The cousins were a lot older than her but she ran away from them.
Her mum then made a life-changing decision, taking her to the local athletics club but they said she was too young. She joined after primary school and has been running ever since.
The 2015 season was her breakthrough year. She was selected for the European Junior Championships and despite running with a hamstring injury, finished fourth in the 100m in 11.69 seconds.
She then ran in the Anniversary Games in London and was selected for the 4x100m squad for the IAAF World Championships in Beijing. Although she did not run in Beijing, she looks back on it as “a positive year that put me into the senior scene” and she adds: “Beijing was a great experience and I think that prepared me for Rio because I understood what athletics was about and what a championship was like.”
Her reward for finishing second in the trials was selection for the European Championships in Amsterdam and the Olympics. At the Europeans, it was decided that she would just run the relay and not the individual 100m.
“Beijing was a great experience and I think that prepared me for Rio because I understood what athletics was about and what a championship was like”
She said of her experience in Amsterdam: “It was great competition and we came out with a medal as well. It was great momentum going into the Anniversary Games and gave us a lot of excitement. At the Anniversary Games, we ran a national record and going into Rio we were excited feeling that we could definitely come out with an Olympic medal.”
In the heat in Rio she missed the semi-final by three hundredths of a second. I have a vivid memory of that race as I bumped into her in the stadium and we walked together to the exit. She was so down on herself but one year later she reflects: “I was absolutely gutted because I had wished all my life to be in that position and it had come crumbling down in an awful fashion. I wasn’t happy with how I had performed or with how I handled the whole situation.”
When I pointed out that she was only three hundredths of a second from making the semi-final, she dismissed my comment, saying: “I know but I ran tragically badly.”
She feared she had blown her chance completely. “I thought I wasn’t going to be picked for the relay and my whole Rio experience was over,” she said. “When I was picked for the relay, it was like ‘thank God they have given me another chance’. And then to come out with a medal. In the space of three days, my whole life changed. I had never been so down and I have never been so happy – so it worked out well in the end.”
She said of the Olympic relay in which GB took the bronze behind USA and Jamaica: “It was amazing. We won our heat and we were thinking ‘we won that by quite a bit. In the final we can really go for it’. That gave us all the confidence we needed.
“We were thinking that all we needed to do was go out and do the same again or even improve. We really came together as a team. Everyone was supporting each other and there was great energy. Getting on the podium, the celebrations afterwards was all a dream and the best thing ever.”
London calling DARYLL confirmed her place in London 2017 with second place in the trials behind ASHA PHILIP, running 11.25 into a 1.3m/sec headwind.
She also set two PBs this season – 11.20 for 100m at the England Under-23 Championships at Bedford and then 11.14 (again into a wind, this time 0.4m/sec) in the Müller Anniversary Games.
She went into London 2017 with confidence. “Rio showed me that I could definitely make the semi-final and who knows what could happen then,” she explains. “So I went into London this year way more confident, wanting to win, no matter who’s next to me in the race.”
That confidence showed when she won her London 2017 heat in 11.15, her second fastest time ever. She said: “It was absolutely amazing, winning in front of a home crowd – it was just the heat, I know there is more to come. A lot of anxiety has gone now.”
“I went into London this year way more confident, wanting to win, no matter who’s next to me in the race”
She would have needed to have run a PB to reach the final, which she missed by nine hundredths of a second. But having run 11.15 and 11.16 against a PB of 11.14, she let no one down. She said of the semi-final where she finished behind MARIE-JOSEE TA LOU, DAFNE SCHIPPERS and KELLY-ANN BAPTISTE but beat two Jamaicans and an American: “It was a pretty tough field and I actually feel like I did do decently well. I am known for having a poor start and I think it was really good. I’m someone who doesn’t put limits on myself massively and I’m always aiming for the best, I’m always aiming for the highest.”
Then she anchored the 4x100m team to a silver medal and, for a moment, it looked as if she was catching world champion TORI BOWIE. She remembers: “DINA passed to me in a really great position and I was like ‘I’m going to run for my life here,’ and that’s what I did and I crossed the line and we got silver. I knew she was going to go off really hard and I tried my best to stick with her but then she found another five gears.”

Running in the London Stadium was a special experience. She points out: “The stadium is 20 minutes from my house and I drive past it each day on my way to training. Every day I was thinking, ‘I need to be there on that podium’ and getting silver with the girls makes that dream come true.”
In 2012 she ran in a schools’ championship which was held as a test event in the Olympic Stadium. She won the gold medal. She recalls thinking: “I am running on this track before Usain Bolt – and then he can go and do what he needs to do on it.”
She was in the stadium watching the great man win the London Olympic 100m title. Now, five years later, she was back running in the same stadium in the same World Championships as BOLT and the experience did not disappoint. “When your name is announced, the stadium just roars, the loudest cheer ever. You get chills and feel the vibrations.”
Speaking after the relay, DARYLL mentioned getting a buzz from seeing BOLT and FARAH warm-up as she prepared for the relay, adding: “I’m very happy to be part of the generation which gets to say goodbye to BOLT while competing there as well.”
She won Olympic, world and European medals all before her 21st birthday, so I suspect there is a lot more to come from this young British sprinter.

WINTER CROSS COUNTRY CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS – Congratulations to the first winners of the 2017/2018 season – Under 20 Men THOMAS BUTLER, 5 Miles Senior Men RICHARD GOODMAN and Masters Men 40+ KARL BULMAN.

GET WELL SOON TYTY HOLDEN last Saturday morning fell over on a hill at Trent Park, he then turned up at the Metropolitan League looking worse for wear thinking it was a torn muscle, in fact he had dislocated his shoulder. TY managed to go to the Lee Valley Open Meeting on Sunday as well.
Following a Hospital visit he now has a sling and some mobility and can function! No cycling or lifting for a while though They struggled to get the shoulder back in and just gas was not enough so had to put him under to fix the problem (so unlikely it will ever come out again) which was all very time consuming plus a 3 hour wait in A and E.

START FITNESS METROPOLITAN LEAGUE – The third fixture of five took place last Saturday at Uxbridge.
An excellent day with a fantastic 5 Individual wins, first in the Under 11 Boys GIANLEO STUBBS made it 3 wins out of 3, next in the Under 15/17 Men’s race THOMAS PATRICK following his excellent run in the National Relays won the Under 17 race by 5 seconds. In the Under 15/17 Women’s race LIA RADUS in her first league race of the season won the Under 17 race.
The Senior athletes produced 2 wins, firstly NAOMI TASCHIMOWITZ in her first league race of the season had a hard-fought race winning by just 1 second, in the Men’s race RICHARD GOODMAN had a slightly easier win, and has now won 10 senior races.
There were top 10 finishes from THOMAS CADWALLADER U11 3rd, ANDONI AMPHLETT U11 9th, SAMUEL GREENSTEIN U13 4th, LEO RONCARATI U13 10th, MAAYAN RADUS U15 4th, ELENA RONCARATI U15 5th, GRACE INGLES U15 7th, BEN WINFIELD U17 7th, SOPHIA STAAB U17 8th and JOSEPHINE CHADWICK U17 8th.
Our teams were as equally impressive starting with our Under 11 Boys winning again, and moved up from 3rd place overall to now lead by a margin of 6 points over VP&TH. The Under 13 Boys secured our 2nd win of the day moving up from 5th to 3rd place overall. The Under 15/17 Men improved superbly to finish in 2nd place behind the home club Hillingdon, which moved them up to 2nd place overall. The Under 15/17 Women with 15 of them finishing had 6 in the top 10, securing their third win out of three and now have a massive 118 point lead over London Heathside.
The Senior Men were slightly short of numbers at the front end, but still maintained their 4th place overall, finally our Senior Women managed an 8th place finish but are in a slightly precarious position of 10th place overall.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP FOR ATHLETES – The following was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently, and was written by Professor JOHN BREWER who is head of the school of sport, health and applied science at St Mary’s University in Twickenham

Sleep is an often overlooked but vital component of athletics performance, as Professor John Brewer explains
Most of us spend approximately one third of our lives asleep, and it is easy to view this as time that is ‘wasted’, with little benefit for training or competing. However, sleep is an essential part of an athlete’s training, and is the time when many of the physiological adaptions to the stimulus of training takes place.
How we sleep – The human ‘body clock’ is regulated by a series of cycles known as the ‘circadian rhythm’, which determines areas such as digestion, hunger, body temperature and heart rate, as well as the time of day when we sleep.
Sleep scientists have found that we have a series of sleep phases each lasting approximately 90 minutes, which initially take us into alternating periods of deeper and lighter sleep, before gradually emerging to a lighter pre-awakening stage characterized by rapid eye movement, or REM.
How sleep aids recovery
It is during the deeper, non-rem phases, where sleep does most to help to support athletes. One of the first things to occur is the redistribution of blood supply, with over 40 per cent of the blood that normally goes to the brain during waking hours diverted to the muscles.
At the same time, hormones are released that help with the repair and growth of tissues, something that is essential after a long or intensive run or race. One of the main hormones that is released is human growth hormone, which plays an essential part in rebuilding and developing the proteins that constitute the muscle fibres that will have been repeatedly exposed to the rigours and stimulus of running. Muscle and liver glycogen stores will also be replenished, ensuring that energy reserves are at full capacity in time for the next run.
READ: Five things you should know about sleep
Immunity boost
There is also evidence to suggest that sleep helps to support the body’s immune system, something that is crucial if illness and infections are to be avoided. While asleep, the body releases proteins called cytokines.
Some of these help to promote sleep, while others are important in the fight against inflammation and infection, and to combat the physical stresses that are caused as a result of training.
Plan to sleep
Scientists and medical practitioners often recommend exercise during the daytime as a means of enhancing sleep quality, since the body responds to the need to recover and repair by increasing sleeping time and quality. However, since sleep involves a reduction in heart rate, core temperature and blood pressure, it is not advisable to finish a training session or run just before going to bed, because the residual effects of an elevated metabolic rate will make it much harder to fall asleep.
Sleep loss hampers performance
While there are clear and unequivocal benefits from sleep for athletes, continuous sleep loss can be a major issue, with the risk of injury, illness and fatigue all increasing. The amount of sleep that we require varies from one person to another, with 7–8 hours being the norm for most adults, athletes sometimes needing slightly more. So, sleep is as much a part of your training and preparation as your weekly sessions, and without the restorative effects of sleep it would be impossible to train effectively and compete.
Nevertheless, few athletes get a sound night’s sleep before a major competition, due to the combined effects of anxiety and the need to wake at an early hour to get to the start line.
While it is easy to panic if you are not sleeping well on the night before a race, I have never yet seen an athlete fall asleep while racing or competing. Keep things in perspective.

THE BIG HALF TO HOST THE BRITISH HALF MARATHON CHAMPIONSHIPS MO FARAH and CALLUM HAWKINS are set to be among the entries for the new event in London in March. New London event The Big Half is to host the British Half Marathon Championships on Sunday 4 March 2018.

The event, which has so far announced the addition of MO and CALLUM to its elite men’s field, will also serve as one of the final opportunities for athletes to achieve qualifying times for the British team for the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in Valencia on 24 March.
“We’re delighted that The Big Half will incorporate the British Half Marathon Championships next March,” said BARRY FUDGE, head of endurance for British Athletics.
“London Marathon Events’ support for the endurance programme ensures athletes have the best preparation for success, and hosting our championship race gives athletes a great opportunity to run fast times amongst great spectator support.”
HUGH BRASHER, event director for The Big Half, said: “London Marathon Events is proud to host the British Half Marathon Championships at The Big Half on Sunday 4 March. This new event features a fantastic route through our great capital city, starting by Tower Bridge and finishing in front of the Cutty Sark, which is truly fitting for a national championship.”
To enter the British Half Marathon Championships, runners need to have run a sub-75:00 or sub-85:00 time for men and women respectively after 1 January 2016.

AAA APPLICATIONS FOR 2018 GRANTS NOW OPEN The AAAs charity ‘Athletics for the Young’ is seeking applications from athletes under the age of 23 – who are in full time education or equivalent and not receiving other funding – to apply for assistance.  Athletes should be eligible to compete for England.
Registered charity Athletics for the Young offer financial help to young athletes and aim to spread their money widely to as many as possible so athletes receiving help elsewhere will not usually be granted an award.  The charity are particularly interested in helping genuine hardship cases for promising young athletes.  The grant scheme supported in the past 4 members of the 2016 Olympic Team.
Over recent years, it has been the policy of the Charity to award small grants of the order of £50 to £200. This policy is not to the exclusion of the consideration of larger sums should your application or athletic project warrant.
The Grant Application form can be downloaded below and to qualify an applicant must be actively involved with athletics under age 23 and in full time education.  Entries close 10th February 2018 and the AAA expect to advise awards by the end of April.  Applications should be completed by applicants visiting Allianz Park on Tuesday and handwritten.
A downloadable version of the Grant Application available via www.englandathletics.org/AAA.  It is possible to apply for funds for costs including equipment and travel.

CHAIRMAN OF UK ATHLETICS RICHARD BOWKER visited Allianz Park on Tuesday 14 November and was shown around the whole site by fellow UKA Director and Club President DAVID BEDFORD.  
Photograph of RICHARD and DAVID

RICHARD was formerly a non-executive director of London Marathon Events and is an independent director of the EFL (English Football League). A former group CEO of National Express Group and chair of the Strategic Rail Authority, he received a CBE for services to the rail industry in 2005.
RICHARD recently succeeded ED WARNER as Chairman of the national governing body.
This was his first visit to our Stadium and he was very impressed with the number of athletes and coaches training and the facilities that were available both outdoors and indoors including our clubhouse and the strength and conditioning suite. Club Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS explained the partnership arrangements with Saracens and Middlesex University as well as the opportunities to be provided when the new West Stand is built. Saracens Stadium Director, RICHARD GREGG, also gave the group a tour of the East Stand highlighting the available facilities and the excellent sporting memorabilia collection.

127TH SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – Took place last Tuesday in the 100 Club in the East Stand at Allianz Park.

The Chairman TONY SUNDERLAND opened the meeting and welcomed everyone present. He followed the Agenda with Apologies for Absence and the acceptance of the minutes of the 2016 AGM. With no matters arising, he asked General Secretary PHILIP CUNNINGHAM to present the Annual Report. Philip firstly thanked all the Coaches and Officials whose dedication and professionalism were a big factor in the Club’s outstanding successes over the past 12 months. He confirmed that his full report could be found on the SBH website. The Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS was then asked to present his report. He gave a comprehensive review of the Club’s Accounts for the year ended 30 September 2017, and concluded that overall, the club was in a healthy financial position.  The Chairman then presented the nominations for Club Officers and Vice Presidents. These were accepted en-bloc although he did point that there still a number of vacancies and invited persons to come forward to volunteer to fill them. The formal part of the meeting then ended with the Election of Vice Presidents and Life Members. The meeting then moved to the Presentation of Awards for the 2016/17 Cross Country Season and 2017 Track & Field Season.

On a personal note, I was honoured to take on the role of President of our fantastic club from David Bedford. I look forward to attending some of our fixtures over the next 12 months to see our club members in action. I was very pleased to see that the total attendance of 110 at the AGM was the best we have had for many a year. Presenting the awards meant I met many of our talented athletes, which I only knew in the past by name when typing up the newsletter. Finally, I would like to thank FIONA GROOM for taking over the organisation of the Awards Presentation and to her husband, KENNY, for providing the slideshow of photographs of SBH athletes in action in 2017. A great night was had by all.

AAA APPLICATIONS FOR 2018 GRANTS NOW OPEN The AAAs charity ‘Athletics for the Young’ is seeking applications from athletes under the age of 23 – who are in full time education or equivalent and not receiving other funding – to apply for assistance.  Athletes should be eligible to compete for England.
Registered charity Athletics for the Young offer financial help to young athletes and aim to spread their money widely to as many as possible so athletes receiving help elsewhere will not usually be granted an award.  The charity are particularly interested in helping genuine hardship cases for promising young athletes.  The grant scheme supported in the past 4 members of the 2016 Olympic Team.
Over recent years, it has been the policy of the Charity to award small grants of the order of £50 to £200. This policy is not to the exclusion of the consideration of larger sums should your application or athletic project warrant.
The Grant Application form can be downloaded below and to qualify an applicant must be actively involved with athletics under age 23 and in full time education.  Entries close 10th February 2018 and the AAA expect to advise awards by the end of April.  Applications should be completed by applicants visiting Allianz Park on Tuesday and handwritten.
A downloadable version of the Grant Application available via www.englandathletics.org/AAA.  It is possible to apply for funds for costs including equipment and travel.

BRIGHTON MARATHON 2018 Takes place Sunday 15 April and the organisers have offered the Club 10 entries. To apply for one of these places please contact to our Club Secretary, Phil Cunningham by email to billylow@ntlworld.com by Friday 22 December.

An excellent day at Welwyn with 63 Humbugs taking part, with successes Individually and Team wise in most age-groups.

THOMAS BUTLER finished 24th and JEREMY DEMPSEY 26th, finishing 1st and 2nd respectively in the Under 20 Category.

SIAB COMBINED EVENTS INDOOR INTERNATIONALTook place at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow on 10 November
EVAN competing in his first higher age-group Pentathlon, produced an excellent performance finishing 5th just 26 points of a podium finish, and recorded 4 personal bests 200m, 800m, 60m Hurdles and Long Jump.

EVAN leading the 800m

Summary of the day – Event 1 60m hurdles (8.47) won his heat placing him joint 3rd with a new PB taking .46 of a second off his 2016 time, Event 2 Shot (13.40m) a solid performance moving him up to first place, Event 3 200m (PB 24.10) taking .54 of a second off his 2016 time, lane 8 took its toll especially as in Jersey there is no Indoor track, EVAN in lane 8 struggled sprinting around the high tight bends, so, unfortunately, this saw him drop from 1st place down to 5th. Event 4 Long jump (6.42m) a good performance and a new PB (as his previous was wind assisted) and moved him back up to 4th place. Event 5 800m (PB 2.17) taking 7.55 seconds off his 2015 time, he ran the race well and beat the boy in third, but not by enough. Unfortunately, this heat was slow and he found himself stuck and unable to get around and pick up the pace.  Final position 5th (3405 points) and won the Under 17 Field Award.
England took Silver and EVAN was the second highest scorer in the U17 England Boys team.

LONDON YOUTH GAMES – The countdown to the first London Youth Games event of the 2018 is now just 3 days until the prestigious Cross country event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following an exciting 2017 season celebrating the 40th anniversary of the London Youth Games, the Games are back for the 2017/2018 season. The anxiously awaited Cross Country competition will take place on Saturday 18 November at Parliament Hill, and this year is going to be biggest and best yet.
The 2017 event saw over 800 female participants and more than 900 male participants from nearly all of the London Boroughs battle it out at Hampstead Heath, and this year we hope to welcome even more competitors to the event.
Races will take place in the Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 age-groups, with medals presented to the top three in each age-group and the London Youth Games Cross Country Championships titles awarded to the best overall borough teams, Male and Female.
Each race is set to be hotly contested as London’s best young runners descend on Parliament Hill to take on the challenging course. All competitions will feature representatives from the majority of London borough teams, including several national and regional champions. So, watch out for some future athletics stars on the day!
2017 Jubilee Trophy winners, Bromley, will be keen to defend their Jubilee title by holding onto the Gold in the male competition and will be certainly be looking to snatch the female trophy from defending champions Wandsworth. Of course, it’s all to play for on the day as each borough will be keen to get the season off to a flying start.

BRITISH INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS – Take place on Saturday 17 February and Sunday 18 February, and not 10/11 February as they previously published. The championships take place at the English Institute of Sport, Coleridge Road, Sheffield (Satnav S9 5DA) full and final details still to be published.

The best of Britain will gather in Birmingham on the weekend of Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 February as they compete for the prestigious honour of being crowned British champion and battle for a place on the British Athletics team ahead of March’s IAAF World Indoor Championships, due to be held in the very same stadium from 1 – 4 March.
The event previously held in Sheffield, moves to the Arena Birmingham for the national indoor championships in 2018. This will give the athletes an opportunity to familiarise themselves with arena as they vie to earn a British vest for March’s global indoor championships, the second world athletics championships to be held in the UK in the space of seven months.
2017’s edition of the championships saw TOM BOSWORTH bring the house down by smashing his own British 5000m record, while ANDY POZZI – an athlete who would go on to win European Indoor gold just three weeks later – continued his rich vein of form on the indoor circuit with a world leading time of 7.44 to claim his fourth British indoor title.
In the field, highlights included LORRAINE UGEN’S winning leap of 6.72m to overcome a stacked field in the women’s long jump, while JADE IVE fed off great support from the back straight crowd to vault over 4.35m for pole vault gold, a personal best by some 15cm.
In a year, which will see three major championships in the IAAF World Indoor Championships, Commonwealth Games and European Championships take place in the space of six months, the weekend of 17-18 February will see hundreds of the country’s best athletes look to start 2018 with a bang.

BRITISH ATHLETICS ANNOUNCES KEY 2018 EVENT DATES AND SELECTION CONDITIONS –British Athletics has announced key dates for its events in 2018 and also confirmed that athletes seeking British team selection to major championships will be required to be present at British Championships events.
Next year the British Indoor Championships are heading to Birmingham ahead of the IAAF World Indoor Championships, but the event is set to clash with the BUCS Nationals indoor event in Sheffield on the same weekend.
The governing body also confirmed that the Müller Anniversary Games is to return to a two-day format in 2018, while “The Para Meet” will accompany “The Meet” as new fixture at the London Stadium in July.

Key events
February 17-18: British Athletics Indoor Championships
February 25: Müller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow
June 30 – July 1: British Athletics Championships
July 14: The Para Meet and The Meet
July 21-22: Müller Anniversary Games
August 18: Müller Grand Prix Birmingham

Staged in Birmingham for the first time, British Athletics says the indoor championships weekend on February 17-18 will “replicate the world championships experience ahead of the World Indoor Championships” taking place at the same Arena Birmingham venue two weeks later.
Athletes vying for British team selection for the World Indoors will be required to compete at the British Championships, the governing body said, with British Athletics also confirming that the outdoor British Championships will be mandatory for those targeting British team places for August’s European Championships.
“2018 will build on the success of 2017, when over one million tickets were sold for UK athletics events, showing that the appetite for track and field remains very strong,” said UK Athletics chief executive Niels de Vos.
“Elsewhere we have already had massive pre-sale interest in our new summer event “The Meet”, an event we expect will deliver another Olympic Stadium sell-out.
“2018 will be the year we elevate both our British national championships, starting in February with the bold step of taking the indoor championships to a world class venue (Birmingham), just two weeks out from the already largely sold out IAAF World Indoor Championships at the same venue.”
He added: “Critically too, a mandatory condition of selection for major championships is to be present at the British championships, guaranteeing to showcase all the best athletes in the UK.”

LONDON’S PARLIAMENT HILL IS TO HOST THE EUROPEAN EVENT NEXT MAY – The European 10,000m Cup is to take place in Britain for the first-time next year as it forms part of the Highgate Harriers Night of the 10,000m PBs.

On May 19, London’s Parliament Hill track will welcome athletes from across Europe as well as the UK as the innovative, volunteer-powered Night of the 10,000m PBs event returns for the sixth year.
“It is a great pleasure to take the European 10,000m Cup to Britain at last,” said European Athletics president SVEN ARNE HANSEN.
“The Night of the 10,000m PBs has become a very popular event very quickly, which goes to show how well-organised it is and also that there is a need for top-quality races in Europe over 25 laps of the track.
“Integrating the Cup into the Night of 10,000m PBs will move both events to another level and heighten interest in both events. I think it is a win-win situation for both parties and shows European Athletics’ willingness to embrace new competitive concepts.”
He added: “I think it’s highly likely that the leading runners in London will be in contention for medals in the distance events at the Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships later next summer.
“Last year, the Night attracted a large number of running celebrities on and off the track, including the IAAF President SEBASTIAN COE and marathon world record-holder PAULA RADCLIFFE.

BEN LLOYD TWIN INSPIRATION – The following article was published in Athletics Weekly recently.


WAYDE VAN NIEKERK and ANN GIBSON are two people who do not, it would seem, have a great deal in common.
The former is an athletics megastar from South Africa and the latter an octogenarian from St Albans.
VAN NIEKERK, the Olympic and World champion and World record-holder at 400m, is someone BEN particularly admires. They met – almost – in August. “At London 2017 I stayed behind in the empty stadium and waited by the media area until he came by me,” explains BEN. “I was hoping to get his autograph but got ushered away by security.”
There are no barriers, though, to this lad speaking with MRS GIBSON, as she’s his grandmother. “She comes to everything I do and has been there for me right from the start,” says BEN.
One thing is obvious BEN’S Nana has rightly beamed with pride at his 400m hurdles performances this year. They include him retaining the English Schools title also victories at the England Championships, School Games and SIAB International.
He also ran 52.98, taking him to the top of the UK 2017 rankings for his age-group.
Looking back to earlier years, BEN is keen to mention a PE teacher at his primary school. MISS WESTON, he says was “athletics mad” and got to carry the Olympic torch on his recommendation.
BEN also recalls the summer of 2015. Then, having achieved English Schools qualifying marks for 300m, 800m and triple jump, he won silver in the latter at Gateshead.
That was a prelude to, however, to the London-born athlete switching events. “I eventually decided, after speaking with STAN MADIRI, my coach, I no longer wanted to triple jump. Out of curiosity I tried the 400m hurdles and found myself climbing the rankings. I went from thinking I wouldn’t make the English Schools (in 2016) to believing I could win it.”
Even though BEN faced more experienced hurdlers in the final (again at Gateshead) and his nerves were shredding – ‘I threw up at breakfast”, he says candidly – the then 15 year-old was in his element once the gun fired and went on to an outstanding victory.
This year, in keeping his title, BEN came from behind with 100m to go. “The home straight is my strength and I pulled away after the final hurdle,” he explains.
It is clear BEN analyses his performances deeply, it is equally true his coach does the same. He philosophises, too. “If you win, don’t let it get to your head; if you lose, don’t let it get to you heart,” is one of his theories. “The athlete is the seed and all you can do is give it water and sunlight,” is on of STAN’S nuggets.
BEN can also use flowery, but absolutely correct, language. “Throughout my races,” he muses, “I have to keep a constant level of acuity despite fatigue. I have a task to adhere to and I must execute it.” Acuity – I had to look that word up – means mental sharpness.
BEN meanwhile, hopes Arsenal can show similar ability this season. His home is no more than a mile or so from the Gunners’ famous training ground at London Colney; and he is a fervent fan of the FA Cup holders.

PHILLIPE BROWN – Following last week’s article on PHILLIPE, who was a member back in the 1970’s, RAY POWELL has searched his phenomenal memory regarding the 2 photographs published, and sent me the following.
The first photo is from the Watford open cross country in 1975, not sure if you can make out the Shaftesbury runner behind me, it was PHILIP LLEWELYN, this was the only time that I was ever in front of PHIL in a race. It was short lived as he won the race, DAVE SWEENEY was second and I was third, with PHILLIPE finishing 7th.
The second photo was from the 1976 Barnet Schools cross country champs at Copthall, which I won with DAVE in 2nd place and PHILLIPE in 3rd, this was the one and only time that I beat DAVE in a race, his excuse was that he had a heavy cold.
DAVE, PHILLIPE and myself used to meet at the footbridge to the entrance to Copthall, on a Monday and Wednesday nights running about a mile from our homes in Mill Hill, Hendon and Colindale to the footbridge where we went on to do our training sessions.

POST BOXES – Published in the 12 October Newsletter was an article on RAY POWELL’S post boxes in his home town of Shefford. RAY was interviewed recently on the latest revelations, be warned you may wish to have a box of tissues nearby – https://www.newsflare.com/video/157068/entertainment-arts/royal-mail-repaint-post-boxes-smartened-up-by-decorator

A LOOK BACK TO THE 1970’s PHILIPPE BROWN recently contacted us, looking to purchase a Shaftesbury vest and shorts, as his original (cotton) vest disintegrated decades ago. A parcel has now been dispatched, express delivery.

PHILIPPE was a member of (then) Shaftesbury Harriers back in the 70’s, running in the Colts, Boys and Youths team, mainly in X-Country. Being a Metropolitan League statistician I managed to trace his first race as a 13-year-old, which was at the Hainault on 12 October 1974, and in the same race was PHILLIP CUNNINGHAM, PHIL LLEWELYN, RAY POWELL and ANDREW SMITH.

PHILIPPE told me he remembers with great fondness HAROLD ASHTON, who was president for many of the years running for the club.  I ran with the CUNNINGHAM bros, RAY POWELL, DAVID SWEENEY amongst others.  I was coached for a good while by BRYAN SMITH, who I am glad to see, like yourself is still very much involved in the club. I would sometimes attend committee meetings at a house on Hendon Way I think…the other day I found a box full of old committee minutes & newsletters from back in the day, which I had held onto and a lot of old memories were brought back.

The last 12 years or so I have resided in Brussels, Belgium and latterly in Bereldange, Luxembourg. Since my early 40’s I took up running again.  At the age of 55 I am still running OK for my age, and competitively, managing a sub 69 min 20km and 37min 10kms this year and looking to improve still. I have never been a member of a club here in Luxembourg, but would love if possible to wear the colours of SBH…my last SH (cotton) vest disintegrated decades ago.

The first photograph shows PHILIPPE in the ‘Watford Harriers Open on the 17 January 1976, in which he finished in 7th place, with RAY POWELL just ahead in 3rd place.

WORLD INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS BIRMINGHAM 2018 – The following was published recently on the Athletics Weekly website.

During a recent visit to Birmingham, 14 IAAF staff spent time at the arena as part of a two-day workshop to help plan the Championships, which will see more than 400 athletes from 150 countries take part in six sessions of competition from March 1 to 4.
The IAAF received updates from representatives of all the local organising committee’s functional areas, including competition, event presentation, accommodation, ticketing, accreditation and protocol.
Arena Birmingham, which hosted the ninth edition of the World Indoors in 2003, was the venue for the 2007 European Indoor Championships and has also regularly staged the Indoor Grand Prix since it opened its doors in the early 1990s.
“This is a vastly experienced local organising committee and we are confident their planning and preparation are on track to deliver an amazing IAAF World Indoor Championships next March,” said the IAAF’s competition and events director, PAUL HARDY, who led the delegation. “The momentum of the extremely successful IAAF World Championships in London this summer is rolling on to Birmingham where great competition, innovation and organisation can be expected.”
JOAN DRUSE, championships director, said: “We were delighted to welcome the IAAF back to Birmingham. The two-day workshop was extremely useful and gave us an opportunity to provide an update on all the hard work we have done so far and to talk in detail with our IAAF counterparts about our plans for the Championships.
“With less than 150 days to go, it is a crucial time for the organising team as we work towards delivering the best ever IAAF World Indoor Championships
The IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 is being jointly organised by Birmingham City Council and British Athletics, in close co-operation with the team at Arena Birmingham and all three organisations were represented at the workshop.
Tickets for the Championships are selling fast but there are currently still some available for the first two sessions; on the evening of Thursday March 1 and the morning of Friday March 2. The opening night will see three straight finals, with medals in the women’s high jump, men’s high jump and women’s 3000m all up for grabs.

BALLOT RESULTS ANNOUNCED FOR 2018 VIRGIN MONEY LONDON MARATHON – The wait is over. From Monday 2 October the 386,050 applicants for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon will find out if they have been successful in the ballot and have a place in the race on Sunday 22 April.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The world record number of hopefuls was 73,586 up from the previous UK applicant record of 253,930 for the 2017 event – an increase of nearly 29 per cent. A total of 58,534 people applied in the overseas ballot. Just over 58% of the UK applications for 2018 were from people who have never run a marathon and more than 45% of the total UK applicants were women (also a new record).
The ballot is a completely random draw, just like the National Lottery, so everyone who applies has an equal chance of success.
Everyone who has won a place in the ballot will receive a confirmation letter and magazine through the post. Unsuccessful applicants will receive either a magazine or will be emailed an e-zine.
Applicants who have not received their ballot result are asked to wait until Monday 9 October before contacting the London Marathon helpdesk.
“The Virgin Money London Marathon is the most popular marathon on the planet with a world record number of people applying in the ballot for 2018. Unfortunately, that means a huge number of people will be disappointed after the ballot,” said Hugh Brasher, Event Director of the Virgin Money London Marathon. “But I’d remind everyone that there is still a chance to gain a place in the 2018 race by fundraising for a charity. Charities with places available are listed on our website.”
Runners in the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon raised more than £61.5 million for charity setting a new record for an annual single day charity fundraising event for the eleventh successive year. That brought the total raised for charity by the world’s greatest marathon to more than £890 million since the event was founded in 1981.

COACHING JAVELIN TECHNIQUE – The following was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.
British record-holder GOLDIE SAYERS runs through javelin technique basics

It is very easy to over-complicate javelin throwing. This is mainly because it is such a complex sequence of movements that have to occur in order, and at speed.
In order to try and keep things simple, I am going to highlight the key fundamentals of throwing a javelin a long way that every athlete would do well to remember from time to time.
Fundamental No.1: Acceleration
Athletes forget that acceleration is a skill. It needs to be trained. The fastest part of the run-up has to be at the delivery end of the throw, not at the start of the run-up. To do this, start slowly and accelerate.
So, follow these rules:
» Practise the skill of acceleration in your running and sprinting training. You must be able to tolerate the speed you create on the run-up and perform a sequential series of movements, so I would recommend starting slower and accelerating. Starting your run-up like a ‘bat out of hell’ only creates a rushed (and therefore shortened) throw if you cannot tolerate the acceleration when it matters.
» If your javelin is not going further as your run-up increases in length, then either shorten your run-up or really work on a controlled acceleration. This can only occur by starting slower than you think.
Remember: As javelin throwers, the reason we sprint and learn correct running mechanics is so that running at around 80% pace on the runway becomes effortless. We can then also accelerate. As you stand at the back of the run-up, I challenge you to start as slowly as you can.
Fundamental No.2: Withdrawal
The withdrawal is just that – taking the javelin back. Two words for this change from forwards to sideways running: smooth and gradual. Any rushed and jerky movements will take you off balance and make you look like you are fighting yourself down the run-up. So, slow down the withdrawal (in the upper body) and see how much easier it is to gradually accelerate on the run-up:
» Be aware that the start of the withdrawal should occur in conjunction with the opposite foot. For a right-handed javelin thrower, the withdrawal should start from the left foot. Just think of a forehand in tennis – opposite hand to lead foot. This way your back doesn’t endure too much torsion and the legs are free to move efficiently.
» Try not to bring the left foot across to the right side your body as you turn sideways. Blocking your body/right leg with your left foot across you in your cross-overs causes you to veer off to the right in the run-up. It also makes it hard to get your right foot past your left in your cross-overs and almost impossible to move in a straight line.
» I always used to think about the run-up and withdrawal as running down a narrow corridor. Keep the left arm parallel to the ground (like the javelin) and working in conjunction with the legs i.e. moving over a horizontal, not vertical plane.
Remember: No wasted movements = no wasted forced = good health = long throws
Fundamental No.3: Impulse
The impulse or ‘time in the air’ from the penultimate left foot contact (if right-handed) is imperative to the throw as it allows time for the legs to get back in front of the thrower in the final crossover and therefore helps set up the correct body angle for the throw. If, as a thrower, you feel like your delivery is rushed and not a ‘pull’ but rather a ‘push’, it could well be to do with the fact that you have not created a big enough impulse stride.
» The impulse allows for full extension of the lateral left hip and therefore creates a ‘sling shot’ effect with the left leg getting back ahead of the thrower in time for the left leg block. Note that an active right foot has a big job to do in this, too. However, if the impulse and left leg extension is not big enough then it is likely that the athlete’s right foot will land behind their centre of mass and their legs will barely play any part in the throw at all.
» The rhythm of the final three strides in effect is LONG (left), QUICK (right), BLOCK left).
» A very important point to note is that the impulse/time in the air should be created horizontally not vertically. What goes up must come down so travelling up too high in the impulse means more force to absorb with the right leg (on landing) and a slower right to left foot block contact time.
Remember: If in doubt and you’re timing is out, drive off your penultimate left foot contact and turn a push into a pull.
Fundamental No.4: Throwing position
The throwing or power position is critical. This is the point at which the body creates a bow for the arrow (the javelin). By contrast, in the pole vault the body is the arrow and the pole is the bow. The throwing position also enables the javelin ‘pull.’
» In order to get into the ‘inverted C’ position, it is important for your right foot to turn quickly when it lands to move into a fixed left leg block.
» It is imperative that there has been full extension off the left leg in the impulse stride which enables the legs to get ahead of your centre of mass in the air so you then have your legs out in front of you when you land. You then have something to pull the javelin against.
» The quickly-turned right foot into left leg block gets the hip ahead of the hand (which you can completely leave alone until the rest of the body has done its work) which not only creates the inverted C shape but also the height of release and mid-flight in the throw. In all striking sports and throwing events, the power is generated from the hip.
» If you have done all these things in the correct sequence then you will find that your right hand is behind your right foot as your left foot lands creating length, pull and distance. Thoracic mobility is also important to really gain excellent range of movement in the throwing position.
» From my experience, to get from the right to the left foot quickly (something most javelin throwers struggle with) I would recommend thinking of the right foot as weightless as this will enable the heel to whip out and the hip to turn in. As soon as you think of forcing the right knee/hip in, you will have loaded the quad up and invariably slowed the movement down. However, everyone has their own preferences. If your own is working and you’re not sinking when you land on your right foot then stick with it.
Fundamental No.5: Point control
» Keep the javelin flat throughout the run up.
» As you come to throw, the javelin often lifts up and the mid flight of the javelin comes from the hip and not from throwing at a steep angle – you’ll only increase drag on the javelin in flight if the angle is too steep.
» Keep arm and hand relaxed and tucked in behind the line of the shoulder in your crossovers.
» Lay the javelin along your forearm and keep it that way as you come to throw the javelin – the elbow should rotate up and over the shoulder at strike.
Fundamental No.6: The throw
The main thing in the throw/delivery is the ability to rotate the shoulder which allows the elbow and then hand to throw over the top of the shoulder (and not out to the side of it). It is helpful to think about throwing down a narrow corridor which doesn’t allow any lateral movement.
This is where throwing a javelin is different to throwing a ball. It is possible to throw a ball around any axis – think about how a cricketers throws – but a javelin has to be thrown through its linear length and in line with the body.
This is not only good for distance but also for optimal release height. It is also critical for elbow and shoulder health as throwing out to the side of the shoulder puts unnecessary strain through the elbow especially. Throwing directly over the shoulder also enables vertical velocity of the javelin (lift).
Relaxation in the upper body is important as is letting the shoulder go after release. The most important thing in javelin throwing is that it looks and feels like a pull and not a push of the javelin.
Fundamental No.7: Recovery
Being too close to the line coming into the throw subconsciously causes the body to shrink and shorten to try and stay behind it. Giving yourself space behind the line allows you to create length, pull and follow through which gives you distance. Don’t be afraid to take your run up back. I would recommend throwing at least 1.5 to two metres behind the line to allow for a good follow through and recovery.
If you struggle staying behind the line when you throw (which many do), practise your run up away from the runway and make it based on rhythm, not check marks. That way, you will be relying on internal, not external cues giving you more control over your run up.
If you can’t stay behind the line in competition then don’t practise going over it in training. Remember, PBs don’t count if your foot goes over the line so make room for the recovery – it will make for longer throws but no fouls.
Remember: Enable your body to get into a powerful position first and enjoy using the torque you will create with your whole body to produce a catapult-like effect for the javelin.

PARKRUN – Can you make sure that you are registered as ‘Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers’, as the link I use to select all results only shows SBH athletes. If anyone is also officiating can you please contact me, and advise me where and when.

CLEAN ATHLETICS ADVICE, BE AWARE WHEN BUYING COUGH, COLD OR FLU MEDICATION Cold, cough and Flu season is upon us. Please remember off-the-shelf and over- the-counter remedies may contain PROHIBITED substances.  Make sure you and athletes you know are aware of how to check before buying remedies.
To find out more please see www.uka.org.uk/cleanathletics/check-your-medication/. Medicines bought in the UK, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Australia or Japan, can be checked using GlobalDRO (www.globaldro.com).
When checking medication on GlobalDRO, the status of the substance will be provided for in-competition and out-of-competition and will be one of the following:
Prohibited – The substance is prohibited in this form and will return a positive test if found in an athlete’s system.
Conditional – There is a limit to the amount of this substance an athlete can have present in their body, or there are conditions on the methods of its use (eg it can only be inhaled and not taken in tablet form). This is clearly detailed and care should be taken when taking a prescribed dose.
Not Prohibited – The substance is not currently on the WADA Prohibited List.
100%me Clean Sport App
Another very useful way to ensure you are fully aware of the latest anti-doping information is to use the 100%me Clean Sport App. This App is available to download via iTunes, Googleplay or the Windows Store and provides athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel with essential information on-the-go to help them participate in doping-free sport.
The App, which can be customised for your sport, provides clear and concise anti-doping advice, guidance and updates to ensure you can be clean and stay clean wherever you are training or competing.
If you need to check your medication, learn more about the risks with supplements, or simply understand more about the testing procedures and your rights as an athlete, the App is the place to start.
UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) ensures the App is always up-to-date and will send out alerts to inform you if anything important has changed. That means if a new substance is added to the WADA Prohibited List or a deadline is approaching for Whereabouts submissions, you will be the first to know.
Other features include the ability to record and store information about your medications for doping control, plus directly access the Report Doping in Sport online form.
More information on this handy App can be found here www.uka.org.uk/cleanathletics/clean-sport-app/.
And remember there is a Free Anti-Doping Module at uCoach.
This online course is available to all coaches, and others involved in athletics, to help make you more aware of the policies and procedures involved in Anti-Doping. The module is completely free to take and it is worth remembering that the anti-doping policies covered apply to all competing athletes.  Once complete this module will be added to your digital coaching record but will not show on your coaching licence. To access this module please go to www.ulearnathletics.com/qualification/270

ELIUD KIPCHOGE WINS BERLIN MARATHON THRILLERKenyan confirms status as world No.1 when beating unheralded newcomer GUYE ADOLA as WILSON KIPSANG and KENENISA BEKELE fail to finish

ELIUD KIPCHOGE showed again why he is the No.1 marathon man in the world right now – and perhaps of all time – when he won the BMW Berlin Marathon on Sunday. The 32-year-old Kenyan owns the fastest marathon time in history, the Olympic title and here in Germany he clocked 2:03:32 to beat a star-studded field.
In rainy conditions, there was no world record and the anticipated head-to-head with KIPSANG and BEKELE did not materialise as the two big names dropped out before 35km, but Berlin still saw a terrific race as KIPCHOGE withstood the challenge of the relatively unknown marathon debutant GUYE ADOLA of Ethiopia.
ADOLA, 27, went into the race with a half-marathon best of 59:06 from Delhi in 2014 but has found his best distance now as he ran the fastest ever debut marathon of 2:03:46 to finish runner-up. Ultimately ADOLA finished 100 metres behind Kipchoge as the runners charged toward the finish at the Brandenburg Gate under leaden skies, but just 2km earlier the Ethiopian was poised to cause a huge surprise as he led KIPCHOGE by around 10 metres.
Maintaining his composure, KIPCHOGE reeled ADOLA back before surging clear himself with 1km to go. Behind, KIPSANG and BEKELE were nursing their bruises. Former world record-holder KIPSANG abruptly stopped at 30km, while BEKELE was dropped as the pack passed halfway in 61:29 and the world 5000m and 10,000m record-holder battled on for a while before pulling out.
“I am disappointed that the world record wasn’t possible today but I am happy to run this time in these conditions,” he said. “I did not expect anyone other than BEKELE and KIPSANG with me at the finish line but this is sport and I am very happy for him that he ran such a great race.”
The marathon is an unpredictable event and there were surprises galore with a number of drop-outs, but KIPCHOGE has now built an incredibly consistent record with victories in nine of his 10 marathons and the only defeat coming against KIPSANG in 2013 when he ran 2:04:05 behind KIPSANG’S world record of 2:03:23.

COMMONWEALTH GAMES 2018 The Marathon course has just been released, which features the Gold Coast’s coastal resorts including Surfers Paradise. Link to view the course – https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox/15eb77d8174ff623

NEW OFFICIALS REQUIRED FOR 2018 – WE NEED YOU NOW – SBH is enjoying a real boom in new members particularly in the younger age groups. As a result, we now participate in 4 Track & Field Leagues throughout the summer from April to September. At each fixture, participating clubs are expected to supply their share of officials. Generally, this means a field team who can take charge of any of the 8 field events, plus track officials and timekeepers. In addition, the promoting club will be required to provide, a chief timekeeper, a track referee, a field referee, a starter team and more.
SBH has an excellent team of dedicated officials but we now need more volunteers to help the Club fulfil its obligations. Our senior officials are well respected and work hard but we need some new blood. Anyone over the age of 16 can become a qualified official.
Why Officiate? There’s a whole host of motivations why people officiate in athletics:

o    You may want to give something back to the sport you love;
o    You may be currently injured and want to still be involved in your club;
o    You may want to help improve your knowledge of athletics and improve your skills;
o    It’s a great way to become involved with your local community, meet people and make new friends;o    You will get to experience the sport from a different angle;
Officiating also provides an opportunity to:
o    Learn new skills, levels of responsibility and much more;
o    Undertake accredited training; and
o    Get a reference; employers are generally impressed by the skills and commitment of volunteers.

Would you like to join the club’s team of officials? It’s important and interesting work, it’s at the heart of athletics, and it’s very friendly and sociable. You will be welcomed warmly. There are training courses and lots of help and advice available.

Indeed, the next round of ‘entry level’ courses will be held quite soon, on Saturday 7 October at Allianz Park, Greenlands Lane, Hendon NW4 1RL:
Time                  Course                                     Course Number
10:00 – 12:00    L1 Officials – Health & Safety    LO0135HS
12:30 – 15:00    L1 Officials – Track Judge           LO0135TJ
12:30 – 16:30    L1 Officials – Field Judge            LO0135FJ
12:30 – 15:30    L1 Officials – Timekeeper             LO0135TK

All officials have to do the H&S course and a specialism of their choice. At the moment, Field Judges are a priority. The Club reimburse the fees that are charged for the courses you attend and in exchange we ask participants to volunteer for a minimum of 4 Club fixtures per season which gives formal qualification. You will then become a qualified official and be scoring points for the team.

Here is the link for the London Officials courses (including LO0135) if you want more general information: http://www.englandathletics.org/courses.aspx?siteSectionId=33&postCode=Postcode&distance=5&region=000100010002001700010003&keyword=officials&courseType=0001300000030013

To attend the above courses, you have to complete the following form officials-course-application-v11b and send a passport size photograph for your licence. The organisation is Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers, I’m the named official and my address is 55 LANCASTER AVENUE, HADLEY WOOD, BARNET, EN4 0ER

The 39th ECCCJ was held in the historic university city of Brno, the 2nd largest city in the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, the weather was disappointing with light rain falling all day but this did not limit the enthusiasm of the 16 participating teams from all over Europe in this Premiership Division meeting.

SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS were again representing GB&NI in the separate men’s competition. Although reigning champions, SBH were not as strong as in previous years, the main opposition looked very impressive on paper and so it turned out. Last year’s runners-up, Fenerbahce Sports Club were in awesome form and were winners of both the Men’s and Women’s competitions.
Team Result – 1st Fenerbahce Sport Club (Turkey 115 points), 2nd Sparta AM (Denmark 111 points), 3rd Sport Lisboe E Benfica (Portugal 101 points), 4th Playas De Castellon (Spain 86 points), 5th SBH (82 points), 6th PAC (Netherlands 69 points), 7th Nike Klaipeda (Lithuania 58 points), 8th Fiamme Gialle Simoni (Italy 57 points)

SBH eventually finished comfortably in mid-table thereby securing GB&NI Premiership competition in 2018.

The 100m was a tense affair as the SBH athlete, DITA JAJA, had spent most of Friday night / Saturday morning in the Brno Emergency Hospital with a serious middle ear infection. Fortunately, the treatment worked, and DITA charged through for 2nd place in (10.96). He then anchored the 4x100m team with LUKE SMITH, PHOENIX LYON and JACOB BERKELEY for the silver medal in (42.25), the 2nd fastest time by a UK U20 club team in 2017.
MATTHEW PAGAN was in great form in the 400m repeating his victory of 2016 in Castellon with a win in (48.26). He then teamed up with JACK FITZPATRICK, LOUIS OCTAVE and BEN LLOYD to pick up the Bronze medals in (3:20.06), the fastest time by a UK U20 club team in 2017.
The 400m Hurdles was a class event and it was the first race at this height for BEN LLOYD. Although the youngest in the field, the double English Schools Champion ran (54.88) to secure the Bronze medal beating a number of hurdlers with much faster times.
The GEORGE HARRISON coached middle distance group competed well with the highlight being an imperious victory in the 1500m by HAMZA KADIR, this year’s English Schools champion, whose (56.9) last lap completely destroyed the 3.42 runner, Mario Garcia, from Spain, amongst others, to bring home the Gold medal.
The Hammer probably produced the outstanding performance of the day where ALIAKSANDR SHYMANOVITCH of Belarus with a best of (81.73m) and the European Junior silver medallist in 2017, won the event competing for Benfica with (75.62m). BILLY PRAIM-SINGH was inspired by the competition and threw his best ever series and his 3rd best ever distance of (62.79m) to secure the Bronze.
The Javelin produced the surprise result of the day when DANIEL BAINBRIDGE with a PB of (62.46m) with his final throw moved him up from Bronze to Gold.
The meeting inspired many of the younger team members for whom this was the first experience of international inter-club competition.

MELISSA’S MILE MOMENT – MELISSA COURTNEY competed in the mile event at the recent Great City Games in Gateshead. With Kenya’s WINNY CHEBET the world 1500m semi-finalist might have been considered the favourite, MELISSA’S ‘give it a go’ approach paid off as she ended season with a win.
After a well-judged race the recent Welsh 3000m record-breaker, who finished fifth in the World University Games 1500m in Taipei, clocked (4:33.83) ahead of CHEBET’S (4:34.42). Dropping down in distance, British steeplechaser ROSIE CLARKE also impressed in third in (4:34.60).

MELISSA relaxing in Taipei in between GREGORY THOMPSON and ALLAN SMITH

“I’m so happy to finish this season on such a positive note,” said MELISSA. “I think WINNY CHEBET was definitely one of the firm favourites but I had a really good run on Wednesday night so I knew I was in good shape. I thought ‘just go for it, if it pays off, if it doesn’t then what have I got to lose?’”
After a break, her focus will turn to securing her spot on the Welsh team for the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, with the 1500m and 5000m the aim.

PARIS AND LA TO HOST 2024 AND 2028 OLYMPICS – IOC makes historic decision to confirm identity of cities which will follow on from Tokyo

The International Olympic Committee has officially confirmed Paris as host city of the 2024 Games, with Los Angeles performing the same role in 2028.
In what was an historic, simultaneous awarding at the IOC meeting in Lima, Peru, there were no surprises in the identity of the locations which will follow on from Tokyo in 2020.
Both Paris and Los Angeles had been looking to host the 2024 Games, before agreement was reached earlier this year for the Californian city, the location for the Games in 1932 and 1984, to wait a further four years. The IOC voted in June to award the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously.
This decision has been a long time coming for Paris, with the French capital having tried and failed to win the 2008 and 2012 Olympic bids. The last time the Games were held there was 1924.
“Congratulations to Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028! This historic double allocation is a ‘win-win-win’ situation for the city of Paris, the city of Los Angeles and the IOC,” said the IOC President, Thomas Bach.
“It is hard to imagine something better. Ensuring the stability of the Olympic Games for the athletes of the world for the next 11 years is something extraordinary. These are two great cities from two great countries with a great Olympic history. Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way.”

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A TOP STEEPLECHASER – The following appeared on the Athletics Weekly website recently.
A British Milers’ Club seminar earlier this year produced a wealth of knowledge and advice, and Matt Long asked four-time national steeplechase champion, Luke Gunn, and 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games steeplechaser, Spencer Duval, for their top tips for youngsters progressing in the event.

Don’t specify too soon – “Physical preparation for the chase has to be underpinned by the development of elasticity, robustness and mobility,” says Gunn. His advice is to concentrate on general conditioning and physical preparation over a period of months, before moving on to more event specific work such as run overs and strides.
“Calf raises, squats, lunges and bridges were all part of my regime in the early phases of my periodisation cycle and I then progressed on to bunny hops, squat jumps, split squats and step drops,” he says. “When progressing on to box drops, the golden rule of skill acquisition is to move from double leg to single leg landings.”
Jump to it – It’s vital to prepare for the loading forces that come with the jumps. For males, the water jump drop and resulting impact occurs from their hips being at around six feet in the air, with females it’s a drop from hips being between four-five feet in the air.
“Jumps inevitably involve tendon loading and should be performed when you are fresh rather than fatigued, to start off with,” Gunn says. “So the golden rule is to acquire the skill first and before training when under stress and fatigue”.
Get hurdling – “You ideally need once weekly sessions for the novice run over hurdles rather than the more intimidating wooden barriers,” advises Duval. “When training, coaches can move hurdles into different lanes, place cones in front of barriers and even consider using their own bodies as mild obstructers by moving in front of hurdles during training. This obviously has to be appropriately risk assessed by the coach to avoid athlete injury but if done so appropriately the inherent physicality and unpredictability of racing can be simulated.”
Take to the water – Apprehensions and anxieties about the water jump are plentiful. “For most people, this can be eased with adequate practise of placing the foot on the barrier,” Gunn says. “A good plant on the barrier almost always results in a safe landing the other side.” He suggests wearing spikes (for the added grip) to practise and to do it first at walking pace on a lower barrier into a sandpit, before progressing the approach speed as your confidence builds.
“You will find that the foot rarely slips and that as you increase your speed the action becomes easier and smoother,” says Gunn. “Once you believe this, all you then need to do is to accelerate into the water jump (and all other hurdles) to ensure a smooth, efficient clearance.”
Don’t neglect endurance – Duval says steeplechasers neglect endurance at their peril. “A key session for a senior could be 3x1km over hurdles with 60sec recovery and then 30sec recovery,” he says. “On occasions you could try active recoveries during repetitions with jumping squats being thrown in deliberately to induce the kind of “super-fatigue” in the quadriceps muscles in an attempt to simulate the tiredness that you will face in the latter stages of a race.”

DIVING POOL IN BARNET – We are heads down for the next five months writing major capital grant applications. In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help apply for some of the smaller funding opportunities. If you can help please mail us at northlondonaquatics@outlook.com
Our recent Triathlon was supported by Theresa Villiers and Mike Freer MP’s. We have since met with Theresa who has also written us an open letter of support. We look forward to working alongside both MPs as our project continues to develop. Our committee consists of five, cross party councillors also who are a great addition to our hardworking and dedicated team.
We are growing strong community links through Community Barnet, Spacehive, Saracens, Kisharon and many more local causes.
Our new logo is almost ready to launch and we are very excited to share with you all. Please do continue to interact with us on our social media pages we love to interact with you all!
Next steps are to draw up the plans deep water, moveable floor plans. We are also working with the disability sport federation to ensure that the pool is as accessible as possible to all community groups.
What can you do to help support us? We need few things…

ROBBIE LIGHTOWLER WINS 2 WORLD CHAMPION TITLES – Shaftesbury’s ROBBIE LIGHTOWLER and former St Albans Boys school pupil and Leeds University cross country captain, added 2 more Championship to his ever-growing CV, stormed to victory in the ITU Multisport World Championships held in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada during August.
In his first event – the Sprint Duathlon – 5km run followed by 20km bike and then a further 2.5km he recorded a time of 58mins 32 – placing him first (and World Champion) in his age category 20-24. This was also the 3rd fastest time of the day with over 600 international athletes competing. His training partner – ADAM THORPE – and the strategist behind the win finished just behind ROBBIE taking the 2nd podium position – the pair of them reaching speeds of over 75kmph on some parts of a highly technical and challenging cycle!
In his second event- The Aquathlon – 1000m swim followed by a 5km run he took the lead after 700m of the swim – and none of the 400 competitors were able to catch him on the run. He was crowned World Champion in his age category (and all age category’s) with a total time of 30min 31 secs – including a very impressive 12mins 36 for the open water swim in Okanagan Lake

MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM LONDON 2017 

Even if you’re not a fan of mascots, it was hard not to warm to Hero the Hedgehog, who became a symbol of London 2017 with his antics and athleticism. Hero enjoyed many memorable moments but the one that sticks in the mind most is the steeplechase stumble (accidentally on purpose, surely) that led to the most painful landing in track and field history.

PHOTOGRAPHS FROM LONDON 2017 – Many thanks to KENNY GROOM who sent me these photographs taken at the Olympic Park, featuring our own kit carrying team.

Firstly, the scene is set, awaiting the next athletes to enter the stadium

After finishing as top British athlete in the women’s 10,00m final at the IAAF World Championships last weekend. BETH will be slipping back into her wetsuit and on to her bike this weekend when she attempts to qualify for the 2018 Commonwealth Games triathlon at an event in Belgium.
BETH will compete in a European Cup triathlon near Antwerp this Sunday 13 August. The event is not an official trial for the Commonwealth Games but a podium place would put her in good stead for selection to compete for Scotland on the Gold Coast next April.
The 25-year-old clocked (32:15.88) in London to finish 21st overall and third European home despite being troubled by injury in the run-up to the event. “I’m happy with that as I was picking people off towards the end and have has a rocky patch lately with some injury problems” she said, explaining that she had a stress reaction in one of the metatarsals in her foot.
Despite training for triathlon full-time, in May she won the British trial for London, beating STEPH TWELL among others, but she has not worn spikes since, although she did wear some for the World Championship final.
“I had to adjust my running to even less than I was doing before Highgate”, she said. “I was advised to prioritise the quality sessions so haven’t got the mileage”.
BETH’S grandfather passed away recently as well. “So it’s been a hard couple of weeks”, she added.

NEWSLETTER HOLIDAY – I will be taking a break to Zakynthos in Greece on the 16 August, therefore the 17 August Newsletter will be published on the website on Monday 15 August, and normal service will resume on Thursday 31 August. As the final Eastern Young Athletes League is on Sunday 13 August, I will publish the results in the 31 August Newsletter.

2 NEW CLUB RECORD’S – Congratulations to CRISTINA POTTER U17 who at last week’s Eastern Young Athletes League, broke her own existing Javelin Club Record with a throw of (38.98m) adding 3.26m to her 4 June throw.
Congratulations to KYLE LANGFORD U23 (see report below) who broke his own Senior 800m Club Record with a time of (1:45.25) in the Final of the 800m at the World Championships. This took .20 of a second off his 9 July time which was also set in the Olympic Park. Moving him up to UK No.2 in 2017.

IAAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS – The Championships opened on Day 1 – Friday 4 August, with NICK PERCY in the Discus qualification, he achieved (56.93m) in Pool B finishing in 15th place, a little below par, but the experience will no doubt see him progress in the coming years.
NICK career to date has included competing in the World Youth (2011), World Junior (2012) European Junior (2013 Silver Medal) and Commonwealth Games (2014). Domestically he has won the England U15 (2011), England U20 (2012, 2013) and England U23 (2014, 2015, 2016) Championships. In 2014 NICK took up a degree at Nebraska University in America, culminating in winning the NCAA D1 title in 2015. His personal best is (63.38m) in July 2016 and season’s best is (62.91m) ranking him currently UK No.1.

Day 2 – Saturday 5 August started with a bang with DARRYL NEITA U23, running in Heat 6 of the 100m she ran a well-executed race winning in a time of (11.15 w0.6). Her interview was a breath of fresh air, so positive about her race, and firmly believes her future as a winner in a global championship, is a real possibility.
DARRYL’S career to date DARRYL’S career to date has been exceptional, when last year she won the Bronze Medal in the GB&NI 4x100m relay team at the Rio Olympics. This year DARRYL won Gold in the England U23 and Silver in the England Senior Championships 2016 and 2017, In 2015 finished 4th in the European Junior and Gold in the England U20 Championships.
DARRYL’S current personal best is (11.14 w-1.4) set earlier this month in the Olympic Stadium, breaking ABI OYEPITAN’S club record, also is currently ranked UK No.2, and No.7 on the UK all-time list.

The final event of the morning session was the 800m, KYLE LANGFORD U23 was drawn in Heat 2 of 6, in which they went through the bell in (51.80) the second fastest time of the 6 Heats. Along the back straight the leaders put in a surge, and suddenly a gap of 5 metres opened up between them and KYLE, this was maintained into final straight and KYLE could not close it, eventually finishing 5th (1:46.38).
In his interview KYLE was convinced it was the end of his Championships, especially after Heat 3 he was in 4th place of the 6 losers to qualify for the Semi-Finals. But after Heats 5 and 6 KYLE had finished in 5th place qualifying for Sundays Semi-Final.
It must have been and interesting chat between KYLE and his coach, our own GEORGE HARRISON MBE.
KYLE’S career to date includes 3rd World Youth 2013, 8th World Junior 2014, Gold in European Junior and ran in the World Championships in Beijing 2015. In the British Championships KYLE won the Gold in 2015 and 3rd in 2017.
KYLE’S current personal best is (1:45.45) set earlier this month in the Olympic Stadium, breaking PAUL HERBERT’S club record, also is currently ranked UK No.3.

The evening session featured BETH POTTER in the 10000m, which turned out to be an astonishing race with AYANA of Ethiopia lapping some 90% of the field. BETH stuck to her race plan, and finished in 21st place (32:15.88) which is her 3rd fastest time to date.
BETH’S career to date includes the 10000m in the Olympic Games 2016. In the British Championships Bronze in 2017 and Gold in 2016, 3rd in 2014. European Championships and Commonwealth Games 5000m and 10000m in 2014. European U23 and Silver in England U23 Championships in 2013.
BETH’S current personal best is (32:03.45) set in Stanford, U.S.A in 2016, breaking SARAH WALDRON’S club record, her seasons best is (32:04.63) and is currently ranked UK No.1.

Day 3 – Sunday 6 August the evening session featured the 100m semi-finals, with DARRYL NEITA U23 lining up in Heat 1 and was up against the winners to be MARIE-JOSEE TA LOU Silver medal and DAFNE SCHIPPERS to Bronze medal. DARRYL has a good start to eventually finish in 4th place (11.16 w0.8) and just missing out of the final. She has come away with her head held high, and will be looking forward to 2018.

Later in the evening, the three 800m semi-finals took place, with KYLE LANGFORD U23 drawn in Heat 2. KYLE was looking refreshingly relaxed, and from the gun he settled in around 4th position, at the bell (50.85) the fastest of the 3 semi-finals, he was still 4th. Towards the end of the back straight LEWANDOWSKI went past KYLE, and stayed just behind when they entered the final straight. The LEWANDOWSKI kicked and KYLE stayed just behind, 50m to go KORIR of Kenya was treading water, KYLE was closing on LEWANDOWSKI and around 10m to go he went past him to finish in 2nd place (1:45.81) earning a well-deserved place in Tuesday’s final.

Day 4 – Monday 7 August started with the first round of the 200m with ZHARNEL HUGHES U23 drawn in Heat 6, and finished in 4th place (20.43 w0.6), ZHARNEL said his start needs to be improved, but qualified for Wednesday’s semi-finals as the fastest of the 3 fastest losers.
ZHARNEL’S career to date includes finishing 5th in the 2015 World Championships, also competed in the 2012 and 2014 World Youth Championships.
ZHARNEL’S current personal best is (20.02 w-0.1) set in the final of the 2015 World Championships, breaking TERRY WILLIAMS club record, and ranks him No.4 on the UK all-time list. His seasons best is (20.22 w1.2) and is currently ranked UK No.3.

Later in the evening NATHAN FOX started the qualifying pool A of the Triple Jump, and produced a jump of (16.49m w1.4) to finish in 10th place.
NATHAN is one of Great Britain’s most prestigious triple jump talents. After breaking the UK under 15 national record at 14, he became the first and only person of that age in British history to jump over 14meters (14.11m). He then represented Great Britain for the first time at the European Youth Olympics, placing 5th in the final. After being plagued with two serious injuries which hindered his natural progress, Nathan represented England at the 2014 Commonwealth Games where he placed 6th in the Final. His British Championship record is Gold in 2015, Silver 2014 and 2017, Bronze in 2013, also winning the British Indoor Championships in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
NATHAN’S current personal best is (16.81m w-1.4) set on the 14 May this year, ranking him UK No.1.

Day 5 – Tuesday 8 August will be a day that will live long in my memory as KYLE LANGFORD U23 produced another outstanding performance. This was the 800m final which was run almost identical as the semi-final, and went through the bell in (50.78), KYLE again entered the home straight a little of the pace but produced that devastating turn of speed, and with finish line fast approaching just failed to catch KIPYEGON BETT of Kenya by 4 hundredth’s of a second for 4th place.  His time of (1:45.25) was a new personal best, KYLE believes he can win gold at the IAAF World Championships in Doha in two years’ time and is keen to show his versatility by running for Britain in the 4x400m and 1500m.

BRENDAN FOSTER AWARDED IAAF GOLDEN ORDER OF MERIT – British distance running great recognised for his major contributions to the advancement of athletics
Brendan Foster has been awarded the IAAF Golden Order of Merit at a ceremony in London.

The British distance running great received the world governing body’s highest award in recognition of his major contributions to the advancement of athletics.
On the track, FOSTER became an Olympic and four-time Commonwealth Games medallist, winning 10,000m bronze at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal and Commonwealth gold in Edmonton in 1978. He also claimed the European 5000m title in Rome in 1974 and 1500m bronze in Helsinki in 1971.
Since hanging up his spikes, he has become one of the most distinctive voices within the sport as a television commentator, a role from which he will retire following the upcoming IAAF World Championships, and has led a running revolution in Britain as creator of the Great North Run and founder of The Great Run Company.
Foster received his award from IAAF president SEBASTIAN COE at London’s Tate Modern as delegates from more than 200 of the IAAF’s 214 Member Federations were welcomed for the 51st IAAF Congress.

CAR THEFTS/BREAK-INS AT ALLIANZ PARKAllianz Park has been on the receiving end of a handful of vehicle break-ins over the last fortnight.
Please can I encourage you not to leave anything on show in your car that would make you an easy target. The nature of our sight typically does not allow criminals the time to go through cars, they are looking for easy targets and goods they can sell on easily.
Each instance has been reported to the police and we have asked them to increase their presence as part of their rounds. We will continue to monitor closely.

BRITISH TRANSPLANT CHAMPIONSHIPSFollowing his success at the recent World Championships EDWIN YAMOAH turned his attention to the British Championships, which took place last week-end in Motherwell, Scotland.
Congratulations to EDWIN who won 3 Gold and 1 Silver Individual, plus 1 relay Bronze Medals. He also won the CARL WHITTAKER Trophy for the 5th year in a row, which is presented to the athlete with the fastest 100m time in the Championships.

100m Gold Medal (11.78), 200m Gold Medal (24.64), 400m Silver Medal (SB 61.13), Long Jump Gold Medal (5.36m), 4x100m Relay Bronze Medal with the Royal Free Hospital team

ENGLISH SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP PHOTOGRAPHSMany thanks to GARY MITCHELL who provided these outstanding photographs which he took at the recent 87th English Schools Championships in Birmingham. It proved to be an excellent Championships with 28 athletes flying the Shaftesbury colours, this was a record number of SBH participants and a record number of medals.

The first photograph features HAMZA KADIR U20 showing a somewhat jubilant celebration, in winning the Senior Boys 1500m title (4:00.20) from TIARNEN CRORKEN (4:00.32) and BENJAMIN DAVIES (4:00.88). In the Heats HAMZA won in a time of (3:58.97) his personal best is (3:51.29) set early this year.

In the Intermediate Boys 1500m first photograph shows THOMAS PATRICK U17 (No.37) preparing to make his challenge around the final bend. The next shows YOSUF BIZIMANA winning (4:00.60), JACQUES MAURICE second (4:01.18) and THOMAS managed to recover his stumble to take the Bronze Medal (4:01.84). I contacted THOMAS who sent me these very candid and thought provoking words.
“I thought I had done everything right, I was really disappointed not to win the race. When thinking it through, I have to put it down to a lack of experience and a misjudgement on my part, In that in I did more than I had too in the heats to qualify and with the lactic acid kicking in I simply ran out of gas in the final a few metres before I reached the finishing line.
It was a painful experience but one I will hopefully learn from when I compete in the future races to come. Given the fact that I ran only one race throughout the whole of the winter, due to injury, upon reflection I am pleased with my progress on the track this summer and looking forward to many more races when I can compete and do well in the rest of my athletics career”.

The Intermediate Boys 400m Hurdles was an outstanding race with BEN LLOYD U17 seen taking the final hurdle just in front of KARL JOHNSON (53.36), BEN’S winning time was a (53.12), retaining his title from 2016, and put him at No.1 in the UK rankings. The following week-end BEN was selected by England to compete in the Schools International in Dublin, winning the 400m Hurdles in a time of (53.35).

EASTERN YOUNG ATHLETICS LEAGUE – The fourth match of the season took place at Allianz Park last Sunday.
Congratulations, after finishing second in our first three fixtures, we produced a well-deserved win by a margin of 60.5 points. The League was formed in 2014, in which we were a composite team with Barnet & District, we finished 8th in 2014 and 2015, qualifying for the Plate Final and we finished in 6th/5th place respectively. 2016 saw us finish in 5th place qualifying for the Top 6 Final, finishing in 6th place. This season the decision was made to compete as a standalone team Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers, which put additional pressure on our Team Managers and Athletes. The results have been exceptional, proving what an outstanding squad of Young Athletes we have, although we are aware there are certain events we are weak. Our Coaches are already endeavouring in filling theses events for next season.

It was a record day with 46 first places, and most of our recent new members performed exceptionally well.
 
Team Result1st SBH (764), 2nd Chelmsford (703.5), 3rd Thurrock (633), 4th Stevenage (587.5), 5th Peterborough (285), 6th Luton (186), 7th Hertford & Ware/Enfield & Haringey (178).

League Positions after 4 rounds – 1st Ipswich (28 league points – 3190.5 points), 2nd Havering (27 – 3307.5), 3rd Nene Valley (27 – 2873.5), 4th SBH (25 – 3009.5), 5th Bedford (25 – 2858.5), 6th Basildon (24 – 2810.5)

With the final fixture to come, which is at Allianz Park on 13 August, we are in an excellent position to finish in the top six in the League. Which would mean we would then qualify for the Final which is on Sunday 3 September, and provisionally will be at Bedford providing they finish in the top six.
The final fixture has only 6 teams competing, not 7, and they are Cambridge & Coleridge, Harlow, Herts Phoenix, Ipswich and St Albans.

UK YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE SOUTHERN PREMIER 1 – The final fixture took place last Sunday at Allianz Park.
A good day at Allianz Park saw us secure a clear 2nd place, within 50 points of a dominant Blackheath squad and well clear of 3rd placed Windsor. Our final position of 2nd in the division, our best performance for some years, guarantees our place in the National Final. It has been a long season but we can now look forward to a break from team competition and selecting our best team for the National Final in Birmingham on Sunday 3 September where it will be tough to beat not only Blackheath, but also Birchfield from the Midlands and the composite teams from Edinburgh and Glasgow representing the North.
We had a number of new and existing members competing for the first time and we hope they all enjoyed the experience. With a number of athletes away on holiday, it was great to see volunteers coming forward to fill gaps. There were many good performances, which are detailed below in the results section. New member EVAN CAMPBELL had a good day in the U17 age group with victory in the Shot, 2nd place in the High Jump and 3rd place in the 100m Hurdles with all 3 performances being SBH bests for the season. ALEX PETTY also made an impressive debut taking victory in both the “B” string 100m Hurdles and 400m Hurdles. There was a hat-trick of wins from OLIVER GRAHAM in the Hammer, Discus and Shot. The highlight was the new club record of 43.94 set by the U17 men’s 4 x 100m team of ROBERT THOMAS, MICHAEL ADEBAKIN, JOSH KUMAR and MICAH AGYEPONG which moves them up to 5th in the UK Club rankings.
HANNAH FOSTER continues her excellent form after her victory and PB the previous weekend in the U17 300m at the Schools International in Dublin with victory in the U20 200m and a new PB. JAZZ SEARS also continued her excellent form after her victory and PB the previous weekend in the U17 Triple Jump at the Schools International in Dublin with a win in her speciality event. It was also good to see a win in the U17High jump and PB from KARA ONUIRI.

Well done to everyone who competed and of course to our 3 athletes, ELLIE BAKER, GEORGE EVANS and DOMINIC ASHWELL who were doing great things at the European Junior Championships in Grosseto, Italy.

Our second Gold Medal was won by SAM HAZELL who competed in the GB&NI in the 4x400m relay team.

COACHING UPDATE – Over the past few months Allianz Park has been creaking at the seams, with so many new Young Athletes joining the Club, the track on training evenings has sometimes resembled the M25 on a bad day. To meet this demand, our Coaches are introducing a revised coaching programme for all age groups by recruiting and training new volunteers. As part of this plan, the endurance group coaches, COLIN GODFREY, KARL BULMAN and DAVE WEIGHTMAN, all passed the ‘Athletics Coach’ course last weekend. A similar strategy is now being followed by the sprints and jumps groups.

UK WOMEN’S ATHLETICS LEAGUE – The final match of the season took place at Bromley last Sunday.

There were wins from LILY BECKFORD U23 (400m), and double victories in the pole vault from JADE IVE and ALEXA EICHELMANN U20, in the discus from JADE LALLY and SHADINE DUQUEMIN and in the javelin from JO BLAIR and KELLY BRAMHALD.

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.
