DARYLL NEITA LAUNCHES KIDS’ SCHEME – Featured in Athletics Weekly in which DARYLL has unveiled a campaign to increase the activity of primary schoolchildren.

DARYLL who is the current Olympic and World sprint relay medallist visited Beatrix Potter Primary School in Wandsworth last week to launch Active Kids Do Better – a Nike and Discovery Education programme, developed with support from John Moores University, to help teachers increase movement and play throughout the school day.
Research has shown that fewer than one in four young children in the UK get recommended amount of exercise, but the Active Kids Do Better programme offers free resources, games and activities to all UK Primary Schools with teachers able to sign up at activeschoolsdobetter.co.uk online.
Beatrix Potter Primary School is one of the first schools to join the programme and on visiting the school DARYLL said: “It’s amazing to see kids of all ages and abilities having fun and enjoying being more active. It’s so important for health and well-being and even small bite-size chunks of exercise can make a massive difference.”


ROSEMARY BOWSHER, Year 5 teacher at the school, said “The children were very excited to welcome an Olympic medallist to our school! We’re proud to be one of the first schools to sign up, and it was great to be able to show DARYLL how we’re encouraging our pupils to be more active. As a busy teacher, it’s sometimes difficult to find time for fun physical activity out of PE lessons. This programme makes it quick and easy and has given me confidence to build movement into our daily routine.”
Schools will benefit from a raft of resources linked to key areas of the National Curriculum, enabling teachers to introduce quick movement into otherwise sedentary lessons. They include “spell check” – a hopscotch-style playground game – and “clock lunges” – a quick classroom activity to help children get out of their seats while they learn to tell the time.

START FITNESS METROPOLITAN LEAGUE – The final fixture took place last Saturday at Trent Park, with the weather being overcast and the conditions underfoot quite heavy.

Congratulations to all on an excellent season, especially seeing many of our recent new members making their presence felt.

On the day GIANLEO STUBBS U11 made it a clean sweep winning all 5 of the fixtures, he was ably backed all season by THOMAS CADWALLADER, ANDONI AMPHLETT and JAMES BYRNES winning the team result, which meant they are the Under 11 League Champions by a clear 58 points.

Under 11 Girls Team – With ever present EVIE REDPATH and OLIVE HARVEY-DEW finished their highest position of the season in 3rd place, with 9 Girls running of which 4 where recent new members. Their final position of 8th is largely to the first fixture at Claybury where we had no runners, but next season should see the Girls fighting for top honours.

Under 13 Boys Team – Have been consistent all season led by SAMUEL GREENSTEIN and THEO BODEN the team packed well to take 2nd place behind the eventual League winners Woodford Green with Essex Ladies. By beating Herts Phoenix we managed to move above them and become League runners-up.

Under 13 Girls Team – Had a not to good start in which it was hard to recovers, the team had 3 ever presents REBECCA JEFFERY, ANNA MURPHY and LOUISA STAAB finished 6th on Saturday and 6th in the final League tables. At Wormwood Scrubs AIMI WEIGHTMAN ran her only appearance of the season, and won by a considerable distance.

Under 15 Boys/Under 17 Men’s Team – Had a consistent season, and at Uxbridge just before Christmas we came away in 2nd place with 13 runners toeing the line, THOMAS PATRICK won a close race by 5 seconds. We were just short of numbers at Wormwood Scrubs which meant the team finished the season in 3rd place. There were 3 ever-presents JOSEPH HEATHER, DYLAN HEPWORTH and BEN KELLY.

Under 15 Girls/Under 17 Women’s Team – Were awesome throughout the season, and from the first fixture at Claybury they applied the pressure on the 4 remaining fixtures, and become League champions by some 192 points. GRACE INGLES and LIA RADUS had 2 wins, also LIDIA KYRIACOU and SOPHIA STAAB each had a win. There were 2 ever-presents ELENA RONCARATI and SOPHIA STAAB and at Uxbridge we had 15 runners.

Senior Men’s Team – Although we had many excellent performances, but due to lack of numbers you get punished team wise, and they finished in 6th place overall. Individually RICHARD GOODMAN won 3 races and was 2nd on Saturday, securing the 1st prize of top Individual. Also THOMAS BUTLER has been equally impressive by winning the Under 20 title, and finished 5th on Saturday. THOMAS and PHILIP CUNNINGHAM were the only ever-presents.

Senior Women’s Team – Suffered with lack of numbers and finished in 10th place overall. Individually NAOMI TASCHIMOWITZ won 1 race and was 3rd in her next race, VICTORIA PRITCHARD has a 2nd and 3rd place.

ATHLETICS WORLD CUP LONDON 2018 – The two-day competition will see eight of the world’s top athletics nations battle for the inaugural World Cup Trophy

A new Athletics World Cup event featuring eight of the world’s top athletics nations is to take place at the London Stadium this summer.
To be held on July 14-15, the Athletics World Cup London 2018 will see teams from the USA, Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Poland, China, Germany, France, Jamaica and South Africa compete for a $2million prize pot over two evening sessions of action.
The competition will see athletes contest all field and track events up to and including the 1500m, with just one male and one female athlete from each nation selected in each event in a straight-final format.
Organisers also announced that to mark 100 years since women were given the right to vote, and as part of the Mayor of London’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign, the first edition of the event will see all nations select a female athlete as team captain.
“The Athletics World Cup London 2018 will be one of the biggest athletics events in 2018 and as such we’re thrilled to be able to launch it at the London Stadium,” said Richard Bowker CBE, chair of UK Athletics. “This is world-class competition where nation will face nation and fans will see an amazing feast of athletics over two days featuring many of the biggest global superstars in the world of sport.
“This will be an incredible event which we are thrilled to be able to launch on the back of a highly-successful World Championships last summer.”
IAAF president SEBASTIAN COE said: “This is one of the exciting innovative events we are seeing in our sport and our thanks go to British Athletics and the Mayor of London for creating it and hosting it.
“We have eight lanes, eight top nations, eight teams and a host of world-class athletes lining up in each event to win the trophy and prize pot. This will be a fast-paced and exhilarating experience for athletes and fans.”
South Africa’s world 400m record-holder WAYDE VAN NIEKERK, who won world gold in the London Stadium last summer, said: “It’s great to see such an exciting head to head event confirmed to be taking place in London this summer – the concept is one that will excite everyone in athletics and is sure to attract new fans to the sport.
“The South African team will be there in force and we hope to see fans from all over the world join us in London for what will be an amazing competition.”
Registration for the ticket ballot is now open at www.athleticsworldcup.org.

LONDON TO BRIGHTON ROAD RELAY The first race for runners (who were mainly professionals) was on the 30 January 1837, and the winner covered the 53 miles in 8 hours 37 minutes. Various races followed until 1951, when the first relay race for amateur runners was held, covering 53 miles 566 yards. The race was run every year until 1964, and was cancelled in 1965 due to traffic problems. The race has been run since then, but as a race for individual runners until 2005. In 2005 the Road Runners Club made a decision not to hold the race, and the main factor was the ever increasing traffic. Since 2009 “Extreme Running” now organise a version of the race, which starts from Blackheath, then through Kent, Surrey and on to Brighton.

Shaftesbury had been ever present since 1951, and on October 1962 the team were ready. We had a Shaftesbury coach which carried the supporters, and followed the race to Brighton, stopping at various points to cheer on the runners – Report of the 10 October 1964 race;

Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers Club Hoody, information on how to buy one

BOB PARKERIt is with great regret to report that former Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers Club President, BOB PARKER aged 87, passed away peacefully last Saturday 20 January at his home in North Harrow.

BOB was an exceptional man who always on hand to give advice when asked, and as a talented coach who was behind the success achieved by former World Record Holder, DAVE BEDFORD and many other SBH members. He was Shaftesbury President from 1980 to 1982, and he told me that was one of the most enjoyable 3 years in Athletics.

DAVE sent me the following – I joined Shaftesbury Harriers in 1964 and he started coaching me in 1965. Always called me Boy, still did to the end! BOB became a second father and SYLVIA a 2nd Mother and in truth they had more influence on my development and life than my parents! BOB had previously coached some of the older Shaftesbury lads and he was still racing himself. I do remember him running the Poly Marathon in the late 60’s with me supporting him on a push bike. Up until the 1970’s he was still warming up and down with me at training sessions and overseeing fartlek sessions on Hampstead Heath. Twice each week in winter we would train from his house in North Harrow. Sometimes there were 5 to 20 in the house. He worked full time and often I would meet him during his lunch break to discuss training and injuries! BOB drove me and others to races including “pot hunting” events to Paignton and Torquay. He was always there for all his athletes, each of them will tell you the same. KEITH MCKAY, JULIAN GOATER, ALLISON WYETH, ANDREA WHITCOMBE and MARA YAMAUCHI plus dozens more. Where he got the energy from no one knows.
I have never heard anyone say a bad word about BOB. I had my first beer with him (date not given on purpose) and I will certainly have my last still thinking of him ever grateful for his love, care and friendship. Was he a good coach…. when I stared being coached by him I was the 73rd best junior in the English Schools XC Champs and 9 years later broke the World record for 10,000m.

His home town was Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, during his teenage years he moved and lived/worked in North London where he trained at the Maccabi Stadium Hendon in the 1950’s/1960’s. He then met SYLVIA, and after they Married they bought a Maisonette in Belmont, Harrow. TONY SUNDERLAND recalls, that from here a group of us started meeting weekly in the Winter to train on the roads, (at this time he owned a MG sports car to the envy of all of us all, they then bought his current house in North Harrow and he always maintained that he had to sell the MG to help finance the purchase).
The training group used to number from 8 to 10 of us including some from other clubs (Ealing/Valley etc) it was from this group that BOB started coaching and his first Athlete he trained was Keith McKay the rest as they say is history.
 
BOB joined the Club in around 1951/2 in the 440yds and 880yds on the track, his best times were 51seconds and 1.57 respectively. In addition to Track running for Buckinghamshire and Shaftesbury he ran over the Country and Road, (running a leg in some of the London to Brighton relay Club teams in 1950’s/1960’s). Some of his achievements included – Buckinghamshire Senior 880 yards Champion on many occasions during the 1950’s and 1960’s, Buckinghamshire Senior Cross country Champs – 1st 1962 and 1963, 2nd 1956, 3rd 1957 and 1959, Shaftesbury Junior Cross Country Champs in 1951 and Shaftesbury Senior Cross Country Champs – 5 miles in 1963 and 9 miles in 1964.

BOB and SYLVIA were instrumental in forming in the late 1980s, one of the most successful female Athletic Club of recent years, Parkside Harrow. They dominated the 1990s with no less than 4 National Cross Country Champions – Andrea Whitcombe 1990, 1991 and 1997, Katy McCandless 1995, Alison Wyeth 1996 and Mara Myers (Now Yamauchi) 1998. They also were National Team Winners for 8 consecutive years from 1989 to 1996.

BOB’S funeral is on Wednesday 7th February at 11.00am at Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium, Holders Hill Road, South Chapel.

STEVE MARSHALL – Congratulations to STEVE when at the recent Sports Officials UK Awards, was presented with the Officials Developer of the Year award for his commitment to mentoring officials, which is highly praised.
STEVE is a national level field official but as a tutor, he has developed both online and practical solutions to improve athletics officiating knowledge. His ‘Gizmos and Gadgets’ sessions at conferences and his online webpage which shares inventions and tips to advise his colleagues, have been essential to the development of officials in athletics.
STEVE commented: “This is an unexpected honour which crowns an amazing year for me, athletics, officials and supporters. It is particularly special as it is an award from an organisation of officials wider than athletics; Sports Officials UK.”

GOOD WINTER NUTRITION FOR ATHLETES – The following was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently, and written by ANITA BEAN who is a registered sports nutritionist and author of The Complete Guide to Sports Nutrition (Bloomsbury £18.99)

Many athletes still ignore the basics of good winter nutrition. ANITA explains how to get it right
Are you fuelling your body with the right foods before, during and after training? By building some healthy eating habits you will help ensure you’re fit and ready for the cold, dark months of training.
Winter endurance training demands a lot of energy from your body and it’s all too easy to underestimate your needs. I still see a lot of athletes fuel up on sugary snacks and drinks instead of a well-balanced meal. When this happens, your body doesn’t get the proper energy, nutrients and fibre that it needs to perform at its best. Instead of getting stronger and faster, you’ll find it harder to recover after workouts and become more susceptible to illnesses and injury.
Focus on nourishing your body with nutrient-packed foods that will support your training plan. Replace highly processed foods with wholesome, unprocessed foods, such as fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, dairy products, lean meat and fish. As you step up your training volume, you’ll need to eat more calories and carbohydrates to support your training.
Carbohydrates remain the body’s preferred fuel, especially during hard training, and can be easily accessed for energy soon after consumption. Carbs also allow the body to burn fat for energy so some carbs are needed even for easy runs.
I always advise fuelling for your workout, eating more before long, hard sessions; less on easy or recovery days. For moderate or high-intensity sessions longer than an hour, aim for roughly 5-7g/kg a day.
For a 65kg athlete, that’s 325-462g. For long training sessions, your pre- and post-workout nutrition become more important. Here’s what to eat and drink before, during and after your session: Before- Have a meal that contains a combination of carbohydrate and protein, as well as a small amount of fat between two and four hours before you exercise. Suitable meals include a bowl of porridge with fruit and nuts; a jacket potato with cheese and salad, or a chicken or tofu stir-fry with rice.
If there will be a gap longer than 3-4 hours between your last meal and your workout, have a high-carb snack (such as a CLIF Bar Energy Bar, a banana or some dried fruit) and a drink 30-60 minutes before your run to ensure you have enough energy to complete your workout.
During – You should drink to thirst. As a guide, aim for 400-800mL per hour (if exercising longer than 30min) but adjust according to how much you sweat.
Also, when you exercise more than 90 minutes, you should consume 30-60g carbs every hour from about 60 minutes onwards (which equals 1-2 carbohydrate energy gels or four products such as CLIF BLOK Energy Chews).
After
Follow the three golden rules for recovery:
1. Rehydrate with plenty of fluid (replace each 1/2kg weight loss with 450-675mL fluid)
2. Refuel with carbohydrate to replace your body’s glycogen stores
3. Repair your damaged muscles with protein (aim for around 20g)
Recovery meals and snacks should contain carbohydrate (for energy), protein (for muscle repair), and plenty of fluids and electrolytes to replace sweat losses.
Try to eat soon after finishing your workout, remembering that recovery nutrition extends well beyond the initial hours after your workout.
If you plan to exercise again within eight hours, then take advantage of the two- hour ‘recovery window’. Otherwise, simply eat your usual meals at regular intervals throughout the day.
If there will be a gap longer than two hours between your run and your next meal, then consume a snack.
Suitable post-run snacks include a Clif Builder’s Protein Bar (which has 20g protein), 500ml of milk, a recovery drink, or 250ml strained Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts.
Training Tips
Fuel up before your early morning session
If you plan to do a session early in the morning before breakfast, you may find that a small high-carb snack (such as a Clif Shot Energy Gel, a banana or a slice of toast and honey) and some water 15-30 minutes before you exercise useful. It will raise your blood glucose levels and increase your endurance and performance.
Use CaffeineCaffeine can really boost your training. Research shows that caffeine before exercise can improve your performance by reducing the perception of effort and helping you keep going longer. The optimal amount is around 3mg/kg of body weight (that’s 195mg for a 65kg athlete), equivalent to a double expresso. If coffee isn’t your thing, try an energy gel with caffeine containing 25mg.
You can take caffeine before a session or race for an early boost, or mid-way if you want an energy boost for the final stages. Everyone has an individual response to caffeine so make sure you experiment in training before using it in a race.
Avoid stomach problems
Gastrointestinal upset (including the ‘runner’s trots’) during hard runs is common among distance runners. Many athletes prefer to run on an empty stomach, but you can train your gut by regularly eating carbohydrate foods or drinks during training.
Start with very small amounts then gradually increase the portion and frequency. Avoiding high-fibre foods before hard training sessions may also help reduce symptoms.
Eat protein at each meal
If you train more than three times a week at a moderate or high intensity, then you’ll need more protein. This extra protein helps to repair and build muscle cells damaged during hard exercise.
Aim to have between 1.2 and 2.0g per kg body weight a day (that’s 78-130g for a 65kg athlete). Target 0.25-0.4g per kg of body weight at each meal (older athletes need more than younger athletes), which equates to 16-26g for a 65kg athlete.
Boost your immunity
Winter brings its own onslaught of problems in the form of colds and viruses. And it’s thought that the increased levels of hormones like cortisol and adrenaline associated with hard training inhibit the immune system.
Other factors, such as lack of sleep and a poor diet, can only make matters worse at this time of year. Here are my top tips for combating exercise-related suppression of immunity:

  • Match your calorie intake and energy expenditure in training – under eating will send cortisol levels soaring
  • Ensure you consume plenty of immune-boosting foods – vitamin A, C and E, vitamin B6, zinc, iron and magnesium are vital. Best sources are fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds as well as beans and lentils
  • Keep glycogen topped up. Low glycogen stores are associated with bigger increases in cortisol levels and greater suppression of your immunity
  • Drink plenty of fluid – it increases the production of saliva which contains natural antibacterial proteins that help to fight off airborne germs
  • Glutamine supplements can reduce the risk of infections as glutamine levels can fall by 20% during hard training
  • Quercetin supplements (100mg a day) taken during winter training may help to reduce the risk of infections, studies have shown.

HOW TO TREAT ACHILLES HEEL PROBLEMS the following article was on the Athletics Weekly website recently, which was written by LAUREN GOWLAND who is a fifth-year medical student at Lancaster Medical School and a member of Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde AC. 

Achilles tendon injuries afflict runners about 10 times more frequently than non-athletes of the same age. From Achilles tenosynovitis, Achilles tendinitis, Achilles tendinosis, Achilles rupture to Achilles tendinopathies, most of us have experienced the pain of them at some point in our careers. But what causes them and how do we treat and avoid them?
The Achilles tendon is the thickest tendon in the human body. It attaches the plantaris, gastrocnemius and soleus muscle to the posterior tuberosity of the calcaneus serving its main function to plantar flex the foot.
It is surrounded by a connective tissue sheath also known as a paratendon. This structure is highly vascular and allows the tendon to glide more easily with movement. All conditions are treatable, but with varying degrees of success. With the correct diagnosis and appropriate management measures put in place, recovery will usually take around three months.
But since the treatment options available are so vastly controversial, the risks and benefits of each option need to be thoroughly assessed and matched to each individual case before a final decision is made, so make sure you consult a medical expert if you are plagued by the problem.
In the meantime, here’s a guide that might help you.
Achilles tenosynovitis This is inflammation of the sheath surrounding the tendon. It commonly causes fibrosis and scarring within the sheath restricting the range of motion of the Achilles tendon. Symptoms experienced with this condition include pain, tender swelling around the Achilles and crepitus on movement of the ankle joint.
Causes for this condition relate to having a tight calf and Achilles complex, changing the volume of training completed or changing the type of footwear being worn.
What to do: Management options for Achilles tenosynovitis can be divided into short and long term plans. Firstly, rest from the aggravating sport. Secondly, at the time of the injury, ice and compression should be applied for about 10-15 minutes every hour for 3-4 hours. This will ease pain along with reducing swelling and inflammation.
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs may be given for a few days to a week to reduce inflammation also. Longer term management of Alfredson’s eccentric heel drops (see below), massage and a change in footwear is recommended.
Achilles tendinopathy This is an umbrella term for clinical conditions in and surrounding the tendon. Medically speaking, tendinopathy is due to non-inflammatory, intra-tendinous collagen degeneration with fibre disorientation and thinning.
Under examination, the overall bulk of the Achilles tendon will increase while its overall strength will decrease. There two types of tendinopathy – insertional, where the Achilles joins to the calcaneus – and non-insertional, occurring approximately two to six centimetres from this point. Symptoms include increasing pain, stiffness around the tendon.
What to try: Heat and light walking are known to improve the symptoms whereas strenuous activity is likely to exacerbate them.
There are three main response stages. Firstly, reactive tendinopathy is a short-term response whereby the Achilles thickens and stiffens in an attempt to reduce the load being placed upon it. The tendon disrepair is due to delineation of the tendon fibres.
Finally, in the degenerative tendinopathy stage, which is more common in older athletes, due to chronic overloading, collagen becomes disorganised and the matrix begins to break down. Increased vascularity and neuronal ingrowth contribute to this stage.
Achilles tendinitis Achilles tendinitis is inflammation of the Achilles tendon itself. There are two main locations where this occurs: firstly, at the insertion point where the tendon attaches to the calcaneus and secondly, at the mid-point of the tendon. In both cases the damaged tendon fibres may calcify providing symptoms of stiffness and pain.
There are many theories about what triggers it including overuse of the Achilles, muscle imbalance or weakness, decreased blood supply and tensile strength with aging or even malalignment such as hyper-pronation.
The tenocytes themselves produce Substance P and prostaglandin E2, inflammatory mediators, in response to increased loading. This subsequently leads to delineation of the tendon fibres.
What to try: There have been numerous studies conducted to determine the best treatment for Achilles tendinitis, but the outcome remains unclear. According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), first line management
for Achilles tendinopathies includes rest; stopping the precipitating sport that caused the injury.
Provide analgesia for the pain itself. Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) are advised for an acute injury but longer term paracetamol would be preferable due to the lower risk of side effects.
In terms of easing symptoms, the application of ice packs or cold compresses to the area immediately after the injury will be of some benefit.
Achilles tendinopathy A total of 66% of Achilles tendon problems occur in runners and it is down to characteristically chronic overuse of the Achilles tendon while training. Other causes of tendinopathy include extreme overloading such as rapid increase in training volume, poorly fitting footwear, change in running surface or excessive pronation of the foot. There’s also a genetic link with Achilles tendinopathy.
What to try: The treatment of Achilles tendinopathies is multifactorial and highly controversial. Initial approaches would be the same as recommended for Achilles tendinosis. Evidence suggests that eccentric rehabilitation programmes promote the most effective outcomes. The Achilles responds to this type of exercise as the fibres of the tendon are reorganised to deal with a higher load.
You could also try orthotic devices that marginally lift the heel or support the arch with the aim of reducing the strain on the tendon while it heals.
HOW TO DO THE HEEL DROP One of the recommended exercise programmes based on eccentric heel drops was devised in 1998 by Dr HAKAN ALFREDSON, a Swedish sports medicine doctor. It is known as “ALFREDSON’S heel drop protocol” and the exercise regimen comprises three sets of 15 heel drops twice daily for 12 weeks.
The exact technique to perform these exercises involves the patient standing on a step with both heels overhanging. The patient lifts the injured heel off the step and raises the good heel to plantarflex the foot, still on the step.
Secondly, the weight is transferred onto the injured foot in the plantar flexed position, over the edge of the step.
Finally, to complete the exercise, the heel is slowly lowered over the edge of the step over approximately 10 seconds until the foot is in the dorsiflexed position. A variation is to bend the injured leg. This puts more weight through the tendon to strengthen it further.
WHAT ELSE TO TRY Vary where you run: For example, run on grass or trail instead of road to reduce the load put through the Achilles tendon. Similarly, reassess the choice of footwear.
Change your footwear: Many runners who suffer with Achilles tendinopathies have a hyper-pronated running style. This is the movement of the subtalar joint into eversion, dorsiflexion and abduction. Finding a supportive shoe to help counteract some of this movement will reduce the susceptibility to such injuries.
Avoid steroid jabs: NICE does not support the use of steroid injections as a recognised treatment for Achilles tendinopathies as there’s an increased risk of tendon atrophy or rupture.
Try shock wave therapy: With this treatment, acoustic shockwaves are passed through the skin and directed at the Achilles tendon with the aim of boosting blood flow to the area and promoting regrowth of the tendon in a linear fashion.
Look for lasers: Low level laser therapy is thought to increase collagen production and reduce blood flow in new vessels. It’s best used as adjuncts to eccentric Achilles exercises.
Surgery as a last resort: Rarely, resistant Achilles tendinopathy may require open surgery to excise fibrous adhesions and degenerative nodules. Surgical methods are of main benefit in acute rupture as opposed to tendinopathies. Younger athletes with full rupture are more likely to benefit from surgical repair as risk of re-rupture is reduced. With a possible future sporting career the benefits of surgery are likely to outweigh any risk.

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.

LUCY also won the Norfolk Schools Championships setting a championship record in the Hammer with a throw of (50.96m).


Currently her training has been a bit hit and miss with a ligament injury from a school netball accident, which drags on and continues to swell up her ankle. But at least she is in the winter conditioning season and not yet in spring time!

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.

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.

START FITNESS METROPOLITAN LEAGUE – The second fixture of five took place last Saturday 11 November at  Welwyn Garden City.

An excellent day at Welwyn with 63 Humbugs taking part, with successes Individually and Team wise in most age-groups. The day started with the Under 11 Boys in which GIANLEO STUBBS made it 2 wins out of 2 with THOMAS CADWALLADER in 4th place, the Team consolidated their 3rd place position and moved up to just 8 points behind the leaders.
Under 11 Girls were led home by EVIE REDPATH in 6th place and the Team also finished in 6th place.
Under 13 Boys Team finished in 5th place losing ground on the leaders, with SAMUEL GREENSTEIN coming home in 8th place.
Under 13 Girls Team finished in 5th place, improving on their 6th place at Claybury, recent new member RACHEL PEARLMAN was first home in 13th place.
Under 15/17 Men packed well and finished in 6th place, although other teams suffered we maintained our 4th place overall, and gained 20 points on the teams above us to be just 7 points behind the 2nd place Team, DYLAN HEPWORTH was first home in 15th place.
Under 15/17 Women dominated the race again with some 14 Humbugs starting, with 4 in 10 GRACE INGLES won the race 1st U15, just behind in 2nd place was SOPHIA STAAB and was 1st U17, ELENA RONCARATI finished 3rd, 2nd U15, LIDIA KYRIACOU 6th, 3rd U17). The Team were runaway winners by 37 points, consolidating their overall lead after 2 fixtures to 87 points.
Senior Men improved on their Claybury performance in which they finished in 4th place, finishing one place higher in 3rd place, still 4th place overall. We have reduced the deficit behind Serpentine from 83 to 58 points, so the challenge is on over the remaining fixtures. It was good to have RICHARD GOODMAN back from injury maintain his impressive performances in the league, winning by 11 seconds, with BRADLEY GOATER finishing one place higher than Claybury in 6th place. 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.

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.

EUROPEAN CHAMPION JUNIOR CLUBS CUP – Took place in Brno, Czech Republic on 16 September, featuring the following countries – SBH v DENMARK v ITALY v LITHUANIA v NETHERLANDS v PORTUGAL v SPAIN v TURKEY
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
