SOUTHERN ROAD RELAYS CANCELLED The following was posted on the SEAA website on 8 August. Unfortunately, the SEAA Road Relays scheduled for Sunday 20 September at Crystal Palace have now been cancelled. It was hoped that with the guidelines changing daily it would have been possible to hold a Road Relay event but regretfully this was not possible under the present Government and UKA guidelines. SEAA are still planning to hold Cross Country Championships, starting with the Relays on 17 October, as well as Indoor Track & Field Championships.  All dependent of course on the guidelines to be issued by England Athletics shortly.

JAMAL LEWIS SIGNS FOR NEWCASTLE UNITED JAMAL was a member of SBH during 2013-2014, having joined us from his local club Luton AC in 2013 until the end of 2014. JAMAL started his athletic career in 2009 with Luton AC as an Under 13, competing consistency in the EYAL in the 800m, during 2009 he also signed for Luton Town Football Club. His athletic career blossomed in 2012 winning the Southern Under 15 800m, 2nd in the England U15 800m Championships with a time of (1:59.32) ranking him UK No.4, and 3rd in the England U15 Schools 800m Championships, also he finished 5th in the England U15 Schools XC Championships.

He joined Shaftesbury at the end of July 2013 and his first race for club was the National Road Relays at Sutton Park, Birmingham on 13 October. What a debut with the team winning by 45 seconds, recording (35.51), 2nd were Aldershot, Farnham & District (36.36), 3rd Vale Royal (36.53). Leg 1 was a momentous battle with JAMAL recording the 5th fastest time of the day (11.51) just 1 second ahead of JAMES MCCARTHY of Chiltern Harriers (11.52), on Leg 2 JAMIE DEE increased our lead to 13 seconds, recording the 7th fastest time of the day (11.55), on the final Leg was ROBBIE LIGHTOWLER who extended our winning lead with a time of (12.05).

CHRISTIAN MALCOLM NEW HEAD COACH OF THE BRITISH TEAM The following was published on the athletics Weekly website recently. MALCOL M’S photograph by MARK SHEARMAN. As CHRISTIAN MALCOLM settles into his new role as head coach of the British team less than a year before the Tokyo Olympics, the 41-year-old ex-sprinter appears to have all the attributes for success. Knowledgeable, experienced and approachable, he is certain to be a popular choice with athletes and fans.

Just over 20 years ago I got the train down to South Wales to interview him for AW. After picking me up at the station in his white VW he took me to Newport Stadium where he spoke in relaxed, laid-back fashion about the European indoor 200m title he had won a few days beforehand, plus the world junior sprint double he had captured 18 months earlier. JOCK ANDERSON, his coach at the time, was also with us that day and described MALCOLM as “a bloody nuisance” when he first arrived at the athletics club as a 12-year-old full of raw talent and mischief. “But he was too nice a kid for me to ever tell him off,” he added. In addition ANDERSON revealed that MALCOLM’S nickname was ‘Flash’. Indeed, his turn of pace not only brought him world junior titles but earned football trials with Notts Forest and Queen’s Park Rangers. His big passion was athletics, though. His art teacher at school was MERIEL DAVIES, the wife of Olympic long jump champion LYNN, whereas athletics coach ANDERSON subsequently stoked his ambition on the track. After choosing sprinting over soccer, he enjoyed a long and successful career without quite achieving true greatness. He finished a fine fifth in global 2000m finals in Sydney and Edmonton in 2000 and 2001, for example, in addition to making four Olympic teams and winning medals at European Championships and Commonwealth Games – the latter proudly wearing his Welsh vest. MALCOLM won his world junior titles before some of today’s GB team were even born and he now joins a national governing body to work alongside Sara Symington, the recently-appointed performance director. Whereas MALCOLM has track and field running through his veins and possesses a wide range of contacts, Symington comes from outside the sport. So they should hopefully complement each other nicely.

No doubt MALCOLM will bring some of the ideas and philosophies from his past coaches such as ANDERSON and LINFORD CHRISTIE – the 1992 Olympic 100m champion. Surely MALCOLM will be far more at home – and effective – operating at trackside as opposed to working behind a desk, too. Full of easy charm and with teeth that would make SIMON COWELL envious, MALCOLM is a super-friendly character. Don’t be too fooled by his easy-going nature, though, because behind the wide smile is a man who knows how cut-throat and competitive elite athletics can be. He realises what it takes to make the podium, but ideally dealing with Olympic hopefuls will only be part of his mission. When he was at his peak – running 10.11 and 20.08 for 100/200m at the turn of the millennium – the AW columnist TONY WARD used to ask on an almost weekly basis “who’s in charge of coaching?” He was referring in particular to the wider world of athletics coaching – from elite level down to the grassroots club scene – and it is a question that UKA has historically struggled to answer, although hopefully they can now confidently point to MALCOLM and say, quite simply: “It’s him!” Every champion – from DINA ASHER-SMITH to KATARINA JOHNSON-THOMPSON to MO FARAH – started life at an athletics club with a humble club coach. So it would be great to see Malcolm’s job description spanning beyond the narrow, elite-oriented “Olympic programme” that his recent predecessors such as NEIL BLACK and CHARLES VAN COMMENEE have overseen. How can British athletics, for example, stem the ongoing bleed of talented teenagers who lose their form or quit completely once they reach the senior ranks? As a former sprints prodigy who was almost lost to football, MALCOLM is better placed than most to start solving this problem. The head coach should be a man that every coach in the UK looks to for inspiration and guidance, rather than the role simply being for someone who oversees the Lottery-funded elite. Taking such a prominent position in a country with such a rich athletics tradition, much will be expected of MALCOLM. Do not expect him to buckle under the pressure, though. As an athlete he experienced pressure at the highest level and always looked to be the coolest athlete on the track. If there are any doubts surrounding him, it is his ability to make ruthless decisions when necessary. At the World Championships in Doha I bumped into him on the roadside during the women’s marathon and we chatted about old times – and his latest job Down Under – for some time as the female runners shuffled past us, struggling in the intense heat and humidity. Ironically and somewhat poignantly, UKA’s performance director at the time, NEIL BLACK, was standing just metres away but no one could have predicted that less than a year later Black would no longer be with us and MALCOLM would be swapping his Athletics Australia uniform for British Athletics kit.

EURO CROSS IN DUBLIN CANCELLED The following was published on the athletics Weekly website recently. 13 December meeting in Ireland has been called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. Photograph of the 2016 Euro Cross by MARK SHEARMAN.

Back in 2001 Dublin was forced to abandon staging the World Cross Country Championships due to the foot-and-mouth outbreak and the event was moved to Belgium. Now lightning has struck twice with another disease – coronavirus – leading to the cancellation of the European Cross Country Championships on December 13. The event was due to be staged at the Sport Ireland campus at Abbotstown but travel restrictions mean the event has too much uncertainty surrounding it and the organising committee has abandoned attempts to stage it. The news will come as a bitter blow to British cross-country runners, who often dominate the Euro Cross and would have aimed to earn selection at the GB trial in Liverpool in late November. It is also bad news for cross-country running in general as the sport has been striving to get back into action this winter following the cancellation of next month’s Cardiff Cross Challenge in South Wales. Read MoreMilton Keynes could now kick off Cross Challenge series

The Irish Times reports that the Dublin organising committee says the event is off “due to too many uncertainties and existing sanitary restrictions in Ireland associated to the Covid-19 situation”. European Athletics interim president DOBROMIR KARAMARINOV said: “Following the cancellation of the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championship a few months ago, this was the last opportunity for a major European Athletics event this year and cancelling it was not an option we chose lightly.” Turin is currently due to stage the 2021 event but at the turn of the millennium after Dublin was forced to cede the 2001 World Cross it was later allowed to stage a successful 2002 championships at Leopardstown racecourse.

CAN YOU HELP PLEASE During the period when all competitions are suspended, I will do my upmost in keeping the Newsletter information and other content going.
I would welcome any contributions From Yourselves, any impending marriages, or additions to the family, any running or competing incidents, also past warm weather training/holidays (No Club 24 please). Currently the response has been excellent, but if you have anything that could make it into next week’s Newsletter – please email me.

ENGLAND ATHLETICS/ECCA/AREA LEAGUE CROSS COUNTRY UPDATE The following was published by England Athletics on 28 August 2020.
England Athletics is pleased to announce that we have begun making steps towards a restricted return to Cross Country competition. On the 27 August 2020 we held a meeting with the Cross Country community, including the ECCA, the areas, and some league organisers to agree on the following proposed timeline for a return to Cross Country Competition:
Mid-September to mid-October – Pilot XC Competitions
5 October – Licence application process opens
17 October – Licensed Cross Country competition can resume
These dates are provisional and will be adapted if necessary, with any additional Government guidance that is issued.
Cross Country competition will be unable to resume in the traditional format, adaptations will have to be made based on the current circumstances regarding the virus. However, England Athletics believe this is an exciting step forward for the Cross-Country community and we are currently working on guidance with the named organisations to support competition providers in providing a safe return to adapted cross country competition.
We are aiming for a version of the guidance to be published for competition organisers on W/C 14 September 2020. It will be the decision of the competition provider whether they will host competitions given the restrictions within the guidance. The 2020/21 XC fixture dates are below. All cross-country dates will remain ring fenced until further notice. Due to the licensing timeline above all have agreed the first league fixture date in October will be cancelled. All licensed competitions will be published on the England Athletics website when licensing opens.

ENGLAND ATHLETICS CORONAVIRUS HELP FOR ATHLETES Many thanks to TUNJI who as reported on the 19 March newsletter is the father of NIAH AKINTOKUN. 
In these unprecedented times, I wanted to draw the club’s attention to some of the great resources available online. England Athletics is expanding its campaign to support Athletics and Running for everyone @home, with a focus on ‘Running @home’ support and advice. The homepage can be accessed here
There are many webinars, interviews and tips from top coaches and athletes on how to stay conditioned and focused.
In addition, there are some fantastic videos for 4-11yr olds on the Funetics webpage put together in conjunction with England Athletics.  The videos demonstrate parents and children (aged 4-11) taking part in FUN activities based on fundamental core movement skills: running, jumping and throwing. Funetics is a programme that has been designed to reflect the requirements of the National Curriculum Key Stage 1 and 2. At this time when our children are currently schooling at home, we hope that these video activities will support the need for education to continue at home.  You can access the videos here   TUNJI AKINTOKUN MBE – Non Executive Director, England Athletics

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “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.
