Having started off her athletics career as a high jumper with a personal best (1.88m current club record) she soon switched to the 400mm where she made rapid progression. In 2002, LEE won individual medals at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships over 400m, and was fourth in the World Cup, setting a lifetime best of (50.82 current club record). The following season LEE enhanced her reputation as being a championship performer by reaching the final at the World Championships in Paris, placing seventh.

After reaching the semi-finals at the 2004 Olympic Games, LEE decided to switch to the 400m hurdles but despite having the potential to be a world-class exponent at that discipline, the switch did not fully materialise but she did win a Commonwealth bronze medal, setting a lifetime best of (55.25). LEE remained an invaluable member of the British 4x400m, greatly contributing to successive bronze medal winning performances at the World Championships but was not fit for the Olympic Games 4x400m relay in Beijing, having to withdraw through injury.

2009 started off well for her, but injury curtailed her performances and although a member of the 4x400m relay squad at the World Championships it was not until her last race of the season in the Shanghai Grand Prix that LEE managed to run somewhere near her potential with a season’s best of (51.45). 2010 started brightly with a convincing win in the European Championships Trials at Birmingham, but a below-par run in the championships in Barcelona where she finished in fourth place in her heat and was also just outside of the medals at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

IAAF REVISES DOHA 2019 QUALIFICATION SYSTEM – The new IAAF world rankings system will not be used to qualify athletes for next year’s World Championships in Doha, the global governing body has announced.

Instead, the existing process of entry standards will be used while the period of consultation for the new points-based system is extended.
“The IAAF’s primary concern, as always, is for the athletes. So while uncertainty remains in the points-based process the IAAF will extend the period of consultation.
“To do this without impacting the training regimes and preparations in advance of the IAAF World Championships next year, the IAAF Council agreed to stick with the existing qualification system.”
The new world rankings system will still be introduced as planned for the 2019 season to give athletes and federations the opportunity to follow the system in real time and become more familiar with the process before it becomes the primary qualifying route for major championships.
IAAF president SEB COE said: “We believe strongly that the World Rankings is the best way for athletes to qualify for our major championships in future. Implementing change takes time as it is important our athletes and federations fully understand what is a complex system. We want to give the sport the opportunity to see the World Rankings in action and understand how they will work before we introduce the new system in full.
“We think sticking with the existing qualification system is the best solution for Doha because it gives our athletes, coaches and member federations the certainty they need at this point to prepare for the world championships. We trust that once everyone understands the World Rankings system they will be confident about its introduction as the qualification system for future championships.”

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

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

NATIONAL CROSS COUNTRY RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS – Took place on Saturday 3 November at Mansfield.
The course and weather was excellent, as were our results. Congratulations on a splendid turnout throughout the age-groups with the Under 17 Women fielding 3 teams.

Our Under 17 Men carried on their successes of the past 6 weeks, where they finished 6th and 3rd respectively in the Southern/National road relays, and 2 weeks ago won the Southern/ cross country relays. At Mansfield, the team of FINN HARVEY, DAVID STONE and KRISTIAN IMROTH finished strongly to secure the bronze medals, after a solid start from FINN, DAVID ran the 4th fastest time of the day (It is actually 2nd as Leg 1 is shorter than the remaining Legs, around 8 seconds) moving the team up to 4th place leaving KRISTIAN to catch and pass Leeds City for National bronze medals.

IAAF DIAMOND LEAGUE REVEALS ROAD TO THE 2019 FINALS – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.

The IAAF has announced the distribution of Diamond League disciplines for the 2019 season, confirming where and when athletes will contest each event in the 14-meet series.
The 10th season of the series will again commence in Doha, Qatar, on May 3, with the 32 Diamond League event disciplines spread across the 14 meetings.
Athletes earn points in the first 12 meetings to qualify for the finals where, as in a championship, the performance of athletes in the final alone will determine who the champion will be.
At the two final meetings, held in Zurich on August 29 and Brussels on September 6, $100,000 will be at stake in each of the 32 disciplines, including $50,000 for each winner plus a Diamond Trophy.
The first meeting in Doha will include both the men’s and women’s 200m and 800m events, plus the men’s 1500m and women’s 3000m. The women’s 100m hurdles, 400m hurdles, high jump and long jump will also feature, along with the men’s 3000m steeplechase, pole vault, shot put and discus.
In total, some Diamond League event disciplines will feature at six meetings before the final, while others will feature at four.
For example, the men’s 100m will be held in Shanghai, Oslo, Eugene, Monaco, London and Birmingham before the final in Zurich. In the women’s 1500m, athletes will be able to pick up points in Shanghai, Rome, Rabat, Monaco, London and Birmingham as they also compete for a place in the Zurich final.
The men’s long jump is included in the event programmes for meetings in Shanghai, Stockholm, Rabat and Lausanne, while the women’s javelin will feature at Shanghai, Rome, Lausanne and
London

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”.

DINA ASHER-SMITH LAUNCHES COACHING CAMPAIGN – Featured on the Athletics Weekly website. British 100m and 200m record-holder DINA ASHER-SMITH has launched a new England Athletics #gocoach campaign which aims to bring 10,000 new people into the world of athletics and running coaching by 2020.

Link to video of DINA talking about coaching – https://youtu.be/4MPVINwe-SI

Having trained with the same coach, JOHN BLACKIE, since she was a nine-year-old at Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC, DINA is someone who understands the importance of great coaches in the sport.
“The relationship between any coach and athlete, whether at elite or beginner level, is pivotal in enabling you to be the best version of yourself both on and off the track,” she says.
“The launch of #gocoach is a great reminder of all the hard work and support that coaches and run leaders provide – often voluntarily – to help others.
“I hope the campaign will inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to think about becoming a coach or run leader. Our fantastic sport wouldn’t survive without them.”

England Athletics believes that there can be a misconception that individuals must have a sporting background to become a coach, and while for many people it is a way of widening their enthusiasm for sport, people of all ages, backgrounds and aspirations can get involved.
Blackie adds: “Being a coach is incredibly rewarding. Not only are you able to share achievements, but you’re also there to support and motivate during any low moments.
“I’ve been lucky enough to work with DINA for 14 years now, and share her journey to being the fastest British woman in history. The joys of coaching don’t just apply to working with elite athletes though; being a volunteer coach or leader is an extremely worthwhile role.
“I would encourage everyone to get involved.”
RUTH WORTHINGTON, a volunteer coach at Bury Athletics Club, says: “My daughter showed an interest in athletics when she was eight and I would take her to our local track and sit in the car reading a book whilst she trained.
“In the run-up to the London Olympics, the club was becoming busier and the under-11 coach asked for some help from parents. I wasn’t sure what I could do but I stepped forward.
“It’s been really empowering as a woman to get involved in athletics and coaching. There’s loads of help and support out there to get you started and it really does make you feel good about yourself.”

GLASGOW 2019 MASCOT – Scottee the Scottie dog has been unveiled as the new face of next year’s European Athletics Indoor Championships. British middle-distance star and newly-qualified vet LAURA MUIR helped to unveil ‘Scottee’ the Scottie dog as the new face of next year’s European Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow.

The pair surprised his creator – Crookston Castle Primary School pupil RACHAEL JOSS – with a visit as she was named winner of a mascot design competition for local schools.
LAURA helped a panel to select the winning design and felt the Scottie dog was best suited to fulfil the role.
“It was an absolute pleasure to be involved in the selection process and help chose the winning mascot design,” said the double European indoor champion.
SCOTTEE was a favourite from the very start and RACHAEL’S design was amazing. To see him today is fantastic, and is very proud to have played a big part!”
Next year’s event takes place from March 1-3 and after a summer which included winning European 1500m gold and the Diamond League title, MUIR now has her sights set on defending either her 1500m or 3000m crown on home soil.

50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FAMOUS FOSBURY FLOP On the 50th anniversary of the famous Fosbury flop Olympic high jump clearance at Mexico 1968, STUART WEIR shares great insight from an interview with the technique’s pioneer which was published on the Athletics Weekly website.

DICK FOSBURY won gold at the Olympics in 1968, exactly 50 years ago, and changed the high jump forever.
The anniversary made me recall meeting him at a reception during the 2011 World Championships and hearing how he had pioneered the technique which was to be called ‘the Fosbury flop’.
Initially high jumpers ran straight at the bar. Then the scissors technique became the normal method of clearance, with the jumper throwing one leg and then the other over the bar in a kind of scissors movement. By the 1930s the Western roll technique had become popular, with the inner leg used for the take-off, while the outer leg was thrust up to lead the body sideways over the bar. The straddle technique saw jumpers take off as in the Western roll, but rotating their torso around the bar belly-down.

FOSBURY recalls his introduction to athletics at school: “In track and field our teacher had us try every event so I ran, I threw and I jumped. And he taught me to high jump using the Western roll where the jumper ran at the bar with a straight approach and aimed their arm and leg at the bar to go over belly first and land in the pit – which was the standard technique at the time.
“The other technique that he taught us was the scissors, where you run at the bar and clear the bar with your seat while your legs did a scissor kick over it. For me this was a simple technique. And of course in those days you were landing in sawdust or wood chip, which was a technological advance on sand. So the landing was as important as clearing the bar so that you survived the jump!
“As things improved, wood chip was a good environment for us to land in. All the schools had sawdust pits then the new environment was with foam and that is what really opened it up, because we were jumping into a safer environment.”
“They raised the bar and I knew I had to try something different to get over it”
Now for anyone living in the modern era, it may be hard to grasp and believe that before FOSBURY, no Olympic high jumper went over the bar backwards. But that was how it was.
Then FOSBURY, a frustrated schoolboy obsessed with the high jump, realised that he was never going to improve using traditional methods.
The best high jumper in the world at the time was the Russian VALERY BRUMEL. In the years 1960-63, he took an Olympic silver and broke the world record six times before becoming Olympic champion in Tokyo in 1964. The young FOSBURY studied him.
“I read everything I could about his technique and his training,” he says. “That was where I learned about his speed – his greatest asset.”
FOSBURY was using the scissors technique and felt comfortable with it but his coach explained that the technique was too limiting, so he would have to change in order to progress. Of course, the coach wanted him to change to the classical style.
“I tried the straddle technique and the belly roll technique but had very poor results, so I asked my coach if I could go back to the scissors. He said, ‘don’t quit yet but it is your decision’. So I decided to go back to scissors and at age 16 (in 1963) I jumped a personal best height of 1.65m. Then they raised the bar and I knew I had to try something different to get over it.
“I knew I had to lift my hips up and to do that I needed to get my shoulders back out of the way. And I cleared the bar at the next height, eventually jumping 1.77m so I improved by 15cm that day.
“In that competition I changed my position from sitting on the bar to lying flat and going over on my back – upside down from everyone else. The change made me competitive and I finished fourth in the meet.
“For the next two years I would lead with my shoulders and was going over the bar at a slight angle. All the time I was doing it by feel as there was no model to follow. I was creating it as I went. In my second year (senior year in high school) I had turned my back to the bar and arched over the bar to fall into the pit. And by then by 1965 the flop had arrived.”

It wasn’t until 1968 that the Olympics came into his thoughts. “I had no ambitions because the Olympics seemed so far away and such a high level of competition that I never imagined reaching it,” he says. “I did not have that Olympic dream until 1968 when my training began to produce better results.”
He went to regional trials and USA nationals and was selected for the Mexico City 1968 Olympics. He jumped 2.24m to win the gold medal from team-mate ED CARUTHERS, with Russians third and fourth. Sadly his hero, BRUMEL, had retired following a motorcycle accident.
Having won the gold and broken the American record, FOSBURY asked for the bar to be raised to 2.29m, hoping to break BRUMEL’S five-year-old world record of 2.28m. However, none of his attempts at 2.29m came close.
Contemporary reports say that while coaches were appalled at his unorthodox approach, the crowd was captivated. FOSBURY’S analysis of the 1968 Olympics is that there were better jumpers in the competition but that his technique gave him a definite advantage. With hindsight, he adds: “No one realised what the advantage would be. But, as history has proved, this was a better technique.”
FOSBURY never set out to change the sport. He just found a technique that worked for him.
“I have had the blessing and good fortune to have made a contribution to the sport but I did not set out to do this,” he says. “I was not trying to change the event. I knew that my technique was my path to success. And I had this technique which was mine – mine alone – and I thought that someday someone would use it. But who knew whether it would be two or three high jumpers or 200.
“The criticism of other coaches did not really matter as long as I was meeting the rules and reaching the standards.”
That in the 1972 Olympics, four years later, 28 of the 40 competitors used FOSBURY’S technique vindicated him totally.
FOSBURY is quick to point out that he was not the first to jump backwards as DEBBIE BRILL, and another jumper in Montana, also came up with the approach of jumping backwards. He adds with a twinkle: “I was just blessed to be the first one to discover it and have success with it at this high level. So I got naming rights, something I am very proud of.”
Another unique contribution that FOSBURY made to the high jump was the development of special shoes with ADI DASSLER (of Adidas).

“At that time high jump shoes were leather and on the sole, some kind of grippy surface,” he says. “High jump shoes are very special shoes for our event because they have a build-up on the forefront. After my success in the Olympics I talked with ADI. We had four spikes at the front and also heel spikes for traction and to keep us from slipping on take-off. After the meeting, ADI sent me shoes with a single spike.”
DASSLER was a designer and an inventor of athletics equipment and FOSBURY an engineer. Together they worked through several prototypes to reach a shoe that worked well in high jump.
FOSBURY failed to make the US team for the 1972 Olympics and his career was effectively over. Having proved to the world that his technique worked, he had arguably achieved his goal.
Of course, FOSBURY competed in the amateur era. He said that the flop “brought me gifts – not necessarily monetarily … but I have met presidents and kings, seen the world, shared my life with wonderful people. It opened doors and allowed people to perceive me in a positive light.”

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”.

JOYCE SMITH MBE RECEIVED SPIRIT OF LONDON AWARD The Spirit of London campaign was launched at City Hall, London to celebrate the unique spirit of the 26.2-mile event and the many extraordinary stories of those who have been involved since its first edition in 1981.

The inaugural winners 37 years ago – joint men’s race champions DICK BEARDSLEY and INGE SIMONSEN and women’s race winner JOYCE SMITH – were among the award recipients, along with marathon world record-holder PAULA RADCLIFFE and wheelchair racing greats DAVID WEIR and TANNI GREY-THOMPSON.

The British Olympian and former 3000m world record-holder won the inaugural London Marathon in 1981 in 2:29:57 at the age of 43.

The Virgin Money London Marathon this year celebrates its 35th anniversary and while one running great – PAULA RADCLIFFE prepares to enjoy what could potentially be a final hurrah over 26.2 miles at the age of 45 next year.

JOYCE SMITH was ahead of her time and was two years older than the now world record-holder and only in her second year of competitive marathon running when she claimed victory in London.
When JOYCE began competitive athletics in the 1950s the longest track race in international competition available to women was 880 yards, so she moved up in distance as the events became available. From being introduced to running at a summer camp when she was 15 to finishing 11th in the 1984 Olympic marathon at the age of 46, the progression of her career is a fascinating tale.
“Obviously right through my athletics career, the events weren’t there,” the 80-year-old told Athletics Weekly at the London Marathon’s recent annual lunch event. “I moved up events as they came in so that’s why my career obviously prolonged.”
“Obviously right through my athletics career, the events weren’t there … I moved up events as they came in”
After success on the country including a full set of world medals and world record-breaking performances on the track, JOYCE smashed the British record when running her first marathon in 1979. She improved that mark three more times before running 2:29:57 to win the inaugural London Marathon in 1981. That was the first time a British woman and any female over the age of 40 had gone sub-2:30.
She returned to London a year later and retained her title, clocking another British record of 2:29:43 and becoming, at the age of 44 years and 195 days, the oldest woman to win the race. It’s a record that still stands today.
“Before I did the marathon I had found that running the 3000m at 41, I was having problems,” said Smith, who had earlier captained the GB women’s team at the 1972 Olympics in Munich where she ran the 1500m. “I tried to make the Europeans in 1978 and was having injuries and goodness knows what, so I knew I couldn’t track train any more. I just wanted to do a marathon like lots of people to say you’ve done one.
“The first one (in Cheshire) went well and within three months I did another two – the Avon International, I won that, and then the Tokyo International, and I won that.
“I just wanted to do a marathon like lots of people to say you’ve done one”
“So it created this new big world. In the first year of my marathons I did six marathons, as I didn’t know how long it was going to last because of my age.”
JOYCE would enjoy another six years of competitive running during which time she finished ninth at the first IAAF World Championships in Helsinki and 11th in the first women’s Olympic marathon in Los Angeles. She helped to take the event to new levels – her 2:29:43 lifetime best set in London in 1982 would have seen her top the UK rankings in both 2014 and 2013 and she believes she could have gone quicker“Looking back I wish I’d been able to do it (the marathon) in my 30s,” she said. “Because, you know, obviously I was reasonable at it and what would I have achieved?”

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

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