BRITISH ATHLETICS LEAGUE PREMIERSHIP ROUND 2 Took place on 7 June in Birmingham, for the Power of 10 results use this link once you access the PO10 result you can select “External Result” at the top of the page which will then load the official results.

We got away with it !!! After being as low as 5th and 4th for much of the day, the team rallied and ended a clear 2nd. Double firsts in the 1500m, 3000m S/C and the triple jump helped the come-back. Thanks to the young sprinters who volunteered to fill gaps at the last minute and got deserved PBs. The 2 relay teams were thrown together on the basis of the “last men standing” and competed well above expectations. The match was a day of 2 halves, with rain for the first 2 to 3 hours followed by sunshine for the last 3 hours, typical British summer conditions for Birmingham, which pretty much matched the team performance !!!
