RYAN CROUSER SMASHES SHOT PUT WORLD RECORDThe following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by GETTY IMAGES.

American throws (23.37m) to beat RANDY BARNES’ long-standing mark at the US Team Trials in Eugene. RANDY BARNES’ world shot put record has finally fallen to RYAN CROUSER. Such has been CROUSER’S form recently, there was an air of inevitability about it. But BARNES’ mark of (23.12m) has been untouchable since 1990. Untouchable until Friday (18 June), that is, at the US Team Trials in Eugene, when CROUSER threw (23.37m) to create history. BARNES’ long-standing record has been a controversial one too. After he threw his (23.12m) in Los Angeles in May 1990 he failed a doping test for a steroid three months later in Malmo. Eight years later he was given a lifetime ban for a further doping offence too. However, he passed a drugs test after his world record throw and so it was allowed to stand. Many track and field fans will therefore be pleased to see the 28-year-old reigning Olympic champion beat the mark. “It felt like a huge weight lifted,” he said. “I knew it’s been a possibility or potential to do it since 2017.”

CROUSER broke the world indoor record earlier this year and had given a hint he was in record-breaking form earlier in the day at the US Team Trials when he threw (22.92m) in qualifying – the fifth best throw in history. A few hours later in the final he opened with 2(2.61m) to take an early lead followed by (22.55m) and (22.73m). In the fourth round, though, CROUSER broke BARNES’ record with (23.37m). After celebrating, he then fouled his fifth effort and finished with (22.62m) to close his competition and, of course, book his place in the American team for the Olympics alongside runner-up JOE KOVACS and PAYTON OTTERDAHL CROUSER was born in Oregon a couple of years before BARNES’ world record throw and his family is steeped in throwing. His father MITCH CROUSER was an alternate on the 1984 Olympic discus team, while his uncle BRIAN qualified for two Olympic teams in the javelin and another uncle, DEAN, was a good shot putter and discus thrower.

IS JAN ZELEZNY’S WORLD JAVELIN RECORD ON BORROWED TIMEThe following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by GETTY IMAGES.

 This year marked the 25th anniversary of JAN ZELEZNY’S world record, but could this be the year in which it falls? JAMES DIXON explores the background to this long-standing mark. On Tuesday 25 May, JAN ZELEZNY’S javelin world record was 25 years old. However, for the Czech star synonymous with gold, the silver anniversary of his (98.48m) throw may be his last time atop the all-time standings.

Somewhat lost in the maelstrom of a 2020 outdoor season almost completely overshadowed by coronavirus and the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics was an enormous throw by JOHANNES VETTER. His (97.76m) effort last September at the Skolimowska Memorial meeting in Chorzów, Poland was not only the longest javelin throw for more than two decades, it was the longest throw ever recorded in a closed stadium. “I think that lots of people didn’t think it was possible to throw a javelin more than 95 metres in a closed stadium,” said the 2017 world champion in the afterglow of his achievement. I did it and I think there is a lot of space for improvement. Tiny differences can make a difference of many metres.”

Just to prove his third-round throw wasn’t a fluke, the gregarious German sailed another javelin almost 95 metres in round four – (94.84m) – which would have also overtaken his previous personal best and the national record. It also underlined his return to full fitness. Four days after battling to the bronze medal in the 2019 World Championships in Doha, VETTER went under the surgeon’s knife to correct a long-standing problem with his left ankle ahead of an assault on the Olympic title.

How the world record was set – By any current measure ŽELEZNY is the greatest javelin thrower of all time. He is the world record-holder, the only three-time Olympic javelin champion and the only male to win three world titles (no other male thrower has won more than one world championship title). In terms of 90m throws, ŽELEZNY went beyond that distance on 34 different occasions – nearly a third of all 90m throws ever recorded – and far ahead of his nearest challengers. But even the greats like ŽELEZNY need a bit of luck from time to time. His final world record mark was set in the university town of Jena, in eastern Germany, in almost ideal conditions for javelin throwing. The Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld in Jena was an open stadium, with only one major stand running alongside the finishing straight. It was shared by the football club FC Carl Zeiss Jena, runners-up in the 1981 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, and Sport-Club Motor Jena whose track and field stars included long jump great HEIKE DRECHSLER and PETRA FALKE, the 1988 Olympic women’s javelin champion and the only woman to ever throw beyond (80m). The late spring afternoon meeting benefited from a strong, but legal, tailwind that not only sent ŽELEZNY’S spear almost three metres further than his previous world record of (95.66m), set in Sheffield at the similarly open Don Valley Stadium, but allowed RAYMOND HECHT to also throw (90.06m). It made Jena the first competition in which two different throwers had gone beyond (90m). BORIS OBERGFOLL, who competed as BORIS HENRY before changing his name when he married 2013 world champion CHRISTINA OBERGFOLL, threw (86.94m) and finished third behind ŽELEZNY and HECHT. OBERGFOLL’S distance in Jena would have been good enough to win the 2019 World Championships. OBERGFOLL l now operates as the head javelin coach for the German Athletics Federation and he believes that, had VETTER benefited last year from the conditions ŽELEZNY enjoyed in Jena, the German would not only have broken the world record but become the first man since UWE HOHN to throw a javelin further than (100m). HOHN’S “eternal world record” of (104.80m) was set in 1984 and, like ŽELEZNY’S, it occurred in the relative anonymity of an east German meeting. HOHN, then 22, added more than five metres to TOM PETRANOFF’S existing world record and hastened the development of a new model of javelin that would reduce distances so as not to endanger the high jumpers and vaulters typically found at the opposite end of the field. Javelin records were effectively reset in 1986.

The record contendersThe beauty of ŽELEZNY’S modern record is that it’s one of the few long-standing world marks which athletics fans can have a reasonable degree of confidence in and, should VETTER surpass it this year, he would deserve all the plaudits that would no doubt come his way. But it’s not just VETTER ready to challenge the mark, it’s the greatest generation of German javelin throwers ever assembled. THOMAS ROHLER is the reigning Olympic champion with a lifetime best of (93.90m), while compatriot ANDREAS HILMANN has also thrown in excess of (92m).  Since the Rio Olympics, throwing beyond (90m) has been an almost exclusively German pastime, with only Estonia’s MAGNUS KIRT and Taiwan’s CHAO-TSUN CHENG daring to impinge on the club cultivated by the impressive trio. “We have a good infrastructure of coaches in Germany. From the old East and the West. BORIS OBERGFOLL tries to bring together all the different experiences of the throwers so we can learn from each other,” says VETTERROHLER concurs. “For a long time throwing was a sport for educated coaches and athletes and Germany had a good base of knowledge. Historically, we had an advantage in sports science,” he says. “The University of Leipzig, for example, does great biomechanical research.” Coincidentally, ROHLER was born in Jena and his father was in attendance to witness the world record mark ŽELEZNY’S set in his hometown. “I didn’t become a javelin thrower just because the world record was thrown in Jena but after I became a thrower it became a huge inspiration,” he says. “It was special to train in the stadium where the world record was thrown.” JAKUB VADLEIJCH is another central European ultimately chasing ŽELEZNY’S place at the pinnacle of the sport. The Czech thrower who finished second behind VETTER at the 2017 World Championships enjoys the unique position of being coached by the current world record-holder. “Of course it motivates me. Athletics is sport of numbers and I remember that result of my coach from my youth when I was not a javelin thrower yet. 98.48m was always a magic number for me.”

The differing approaches Speaking to VETTER and ROHLER ahead of the season, it’s clear that both have given the possibility of breaking the world record serious thought, though their approaches are markedly different. ROHLER, the elder by approximately 18 months and aged 29, is more circumspect as to whether the perfect alignment of health and stadium conditions will exist to threaten the record. “Javelin is not yoga, it’s a risky sport and we hurt our bodies a lot. Most of the stadiums we throw in are not designed to throw the javelin far,” asserts ROHLER, who is the same age now that ŽELEZNY was when he set his world record. There are fewer open stadiums on the Diamond League circuit than previously and both men are clear that preparing for major championships like this summer’s Olympics, then prize money, are the overriding factors when selecting which competitions to enter. “I think the world record is something that athletes think about very individually,” adds ROHLER. “I am focused on competing and on a long and healthy career in the sport. The world record is not my number one motivation but it is definitely something in the background that is always there.” VETTER, on the other hand, is far more open and comfortable talking about breaking the world record as an ambition. “The conditions have to be right and in the javelin, you need your whole body. You need the right speed, a good plant foot, the right release point, trajectory and transfer of weight. “Trying to throw long is like going into a casino and playing roulette – the odds are against you.” However, something in VETTER’S eyes as he talks eloquently about the enormity of breaking the world record suggests he thinks he might just be the one to eventually overcome the odds.

ROHLER continues: “I believe it is just a matter of time before somebody throws over 100m. I can’t say who will be the person to do it but I’m sure it is possible and it will happen.” The science backs up that hypothesis. Biomechanists have developed machines to replicate the power humans are able to transfer into the javelin and, with perfect technique, release speed and trajectory the 100m barrier is broken with ease. The question is: which human will be able to minimise their technical flaws and take advantage of favourable aerodynamic conditions to maximise their distance? Furthermore, ROHLER believes that javelin’s continued expansion beyond its traditional European and Scandinavian heartlands will also eventually result in longer distances as more people globally have the opportunity to compete in the sport. His rationale is sound. In the past decade KELSHOM WALCOTT of Trinidad and Tobago became the first black Olympic javelin champion, JULIUS YEGO (Kenya) and ANDERSON PETERS (Grenada) have become world champions, while athletes from Cuba, Japan and Egypt have appeared on world championship rostrums. Prior to WALCOTT’S gold medal in 2012 you had to go back to Munich 1972 to find the last non-European medalist. Another name to watch is the 23-year-old world junior record holder NEERAJ CHOPRA of India. CHOPRA is coached by HOHN, was the second-longest thrower in the world last season and currently has a lifetime best of (88.07m).

Should we expect the world record to fall this season? One factor that shouldn’t be overlooked in Vetter’s extraordinary performance last season is Covid-19. While the virus wreaked havoc with many athletes’ best laid plans and some, like ROHLER, opted out of the entire season, the delayed return to competition may have inadvertently helped Vetter as he rehabilitated following his ankle surgery. Not that he necessarily agrees. “I like certainty and knowing where I will compete, when I will have my training blocks, but at the moment that’s not always possible. We are all having to adapt. I have to be spontaneous,” he says. Covid-19 remains a complicating factor this season. With no exemption for elite athletes from Germany’s entry requirements, athletes like VETTER and ROHLER are having to plan their schedules with care, lest a competition in a country deemed high risk forces them into up to 10 days of quarantine upon their return. With the Olympics, the primary goal for both, their choices up until the Tokyo javelin final will be made with that almost exclusively in mind. Nevertheless, both men believe that the world record can be broken and, if it’s going to be a German thrower who takes it from ŽELEZNY, expect that to happen in the near future.

JONATHAN KILSBY’S MEMORIAL DAYJONATHAN loved Trent Park; as children, we lived only a few hundred yards from its entrance and, throughout his life, it was a one of his favourite training areas.  To commemorate JONATHAN’S life, we are going to have a walk-in Trent Park on Saturday 31st July.  All of JONATHAN’S friends, family and colleagues are invited to join us.  It will be a very informal event, with a walk of about an hour to one of JONATHAN’S most loved areas of the park, where we will stop and have our own thoughts about his kind, good humoured and generous life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will meet at midday at the carpark by the Trent Park Café, near the Cockfosters entrance to the park. (Post code: EN4 0JY).  https://goo.gl/maps/GoZe6V4hvt18MpZKA/a>
If you are a runner then, on the same morning, Barnet and District Athletic Club will be completing their training session in JONATHAN’S memory.  They will be meeting at 9:00 at the same location and training for around 90 minutes.  Runners from all JONATHAN’S former running clubs and of all abilities are welcome.
There is no need, at this point, to let us know if you intend coming along.  We appreciate that planning anything at the moment has its challenges, particularly two months in advance.  We will email again, two weeks before the 31st July, with any further details and updates to the day.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

NEW CLUB RECORDS Congratulations to MARK PEARCE who ran an incredible 3000m Steeplechase (8:25.43) in Nice on 12 June.

JONAH MARKSJoined Shaftesbury in July 2019, and has recently competed in several multisport events, including Duathlons, Triathlons and an Aquathon. In most of those events he was competing in the 16-20 age category, and as he is still only 15 (the age category starts in the year you turn that age), he did very well to hold his own against boys much bigger and more developed than him. As a result, he qualified to represent Great Britain in his age group at the European and World Sprint Duathlon Champs in 2021 and 2022 and the European and World Sprint Triathlon Champs in 2021 and 2022. Unfortunately, at present, it looks like the 2021 events may not go ahead, but with any luck he will be putting on a Great Britain tri-suit next year to compete for his country.

His father SIMON told me, he realises that SBH doesn’t specifically cover multisport, but just wanted to acknowledge that none of his achievements would have been possible without the excellent training he gets from the club. Thank you.

RETURN OF PARKRUN SET FOR 26 JUNEThe following article and was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by REBECCA BURNS.

Popular weekly series of 5km events is ready for comeback after vast majority of landowners give green light, when parkrun returns in the UK on 26 June, it will have been 469 days since the events were last held. It has been a long and frustrating wait and previous plans to get it re-started have struggled due to not enough landowners agreeing for it come back on their patch. However, now more than 500 of the 589 councils and landowners have given parkrun permission for it to resume on Saturday 26 June.

This follows a big campaign to put pressure on those landowners and councils who were initially reluctant to give parkrun the green light. The parkrun organisation itself wrote to BORIS JOHNSON recently calling for his Government to put pressure on councils, whereas a sizeable number of articles have appeared in the media supporting the case for its comeback. World Athletics president SEBASTIAN COE also added his voice to the support by saying parkrun “has become part of the fabric of everyday life”. TOM WILLIAMS, chief operating officer of parkrun, said: “There is now a strong consensus from landowners and public health officials, right across the country, that the return of parkrun – a free-to-access public health initiative – is vital as we look to improve our physical and mental health in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We would like to place on record our thanks to the hundreds of landowners, directors of public health, the UK Government, parliamentarians from across the political spectrum, the Local Government Association, Sport England, mayors, press and media, public figures, parkrun volunteers, and the wider parkrun community for their incredible efforts during what has undoubtedly been a difficult time.”
If some but not all parkrun events resumed there was the fear that the active events would get flooded with too many people. Therefore parkrun decided to wait until 80-90% of its events had permission to resume. Even on Thursday (10 June), around 100,000 of the 160,000 parkrunners in the North East of England, for example, were registered to an event that did not have permission to return. But 24 hours later that number fell to 8000. Similarly, London now has just short of 40 approvals from 56 events, compared to just three in mid-May. WILLIAMS added: “Following a careful review of the information available, we now have a high degree of confidence that, when events do return, they will be safe, enjoyable, and accessible for all those who wish to take part in social, outdoor, physical activity, with their local community.
“For the remainder of events where we don’t yet have permission in place, we remain committed to doing everything we can to work with local event teams and landowners to see if we can secure the permission needed for their return.”

The re-start of parkrun is not absolutely 100% confirmed however as WILLIAMS explained: “On Monday, the Prime Minister will be confirming the details and timing of Step 4, and that his announcement may have a material impact on our ability to reopen on 26 June.

BIRMINGHAM 2022 UNVEILS TICKETS AND FULL EVENT SCHEDULEThe following article and photograph was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by LENSI PHOTOGRAPHY. From left to right HANNAH ENGLAND, MATTHEW KIDSON, IAN METCALFE, ORIE and KELLY PETERSEN.

The preparations for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham have stepped up a gear with organisers revealing that the refurbishment of Alexander Stadium is firmly on target, as well as unveiling the events schedule and releasing ticket information. Tickets for next year’s showpiece, which takes place from 28 July – 8 August, 2022, will start from just £8 for under-16s and £15 for adults, while there will also be £22 tickets for every session of the Games, including the opening and closing ceremonies and all medal sessions.

Athletics is one of 19 different sports on offer, with the track and field events starting on 2 August and taking up six out of the 11 days of competition. The athletics will take place at Alexander Stadium, which is currently undergoing a £72 million refurbishment. The venue is on budget and will be completed in Spring 2022. Its general capacity will be around 18,000 but extended to approximately 30,000 during the Games. The roof liner sheets on the new stand have been finished, pre-cast terracing (the concrete support for seating) and the metal decked concrete floors for the new West Stand have been completed. The feature steps for the northern plaza have also been installed. The project is being overseen by Birmingham City Council and its leader, Councillor IAN WARD, is confident that the Games can create an athletics legacy for the city, rather than a white elephant. “This stadium here in Birmingham will become the national stadium for athletics and become by far and away the best athletics venue in the whole of the country. Over 30,000 people will be packed in here for the Commonwealth Games and I expect to hear the roar of the crowd as the athletes come round the final bend,” WARD tells AW. “I expect to see major national and international events long into the future. We’re talking to a number of organisations about future use of the stadium for 365 days of the year and Birmingham University will be the anchor tenants to ensure that it does not become a white elephant and can become an asset to the city long into the future.”

This will be the third time that Great Britain has hosted a Commonwealth Games this century after Manchester in 2002 and Glasgow in 2014. HANNAH ENGLAND, 1500m world championship silver medallist and three-time UK champion, competed in Glasgow and has strong links to Birmingham, given she studied at university in the city. “We’ve been so lucky to have so many home athletics competitions in Britain and I can see Birmingham just building on that. We’re so lucky with that tradition and we’ve learnt from those events which means we can put on an even better championships,” she says. “I think the Alexander Stadium has a strong athletics tradition but I think everyone knew it needed updating and it’s going to be similar to the ones you get in Europe where the crowds are much closer around the bends. That atmosphere is what we’re going to get from Birmingham 2022 and I think events would be amazing alongside the community element of having English Schools and of course Birchfield Harriers are based here. “I wish this was here five years ago so I could compete but I’m based at the University of Birmingham and I’m so keen to see their journeys.”

The start of the Commonwealth Games takes place just four days after the end of the World Championships in Oregon on 24 July, in what is set to be a blockbuster six weeks of athletics action given that the European Championships in Munich then start on 16 August.  MATT KIDSON, Director of Sport for Birmingham 2022, is excited by the prospect of welcoming medallists to Birmingham so soon after Oregon. “My first thought walking into the stadium is it’s going to be a world-class venue for the Commonwealth Games six days of athletics coming back from the world champs in the US. The atmosphere that the stadium will generate will be fantastic. We’ll have temporary stands in as well to take the capacity up to 30,000 and I think we’ll get a similar noise to what we had at London 2012,” he tells AW. “I think this is going to be a very special place for athletics to take place. We’ve got the home of UK Athletics here in Birmingham and there’s an affinity for the sport in the West Midlands. The athletes know this place and they are going to feel at home.”

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

LAUNCH OF THE SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS NEW CLUB KITWe are pleased to announce, the launch of our new club kit, for Men, Women and Kids.
Over the past year we carried out many consultations with a number of SBH members. Following this the SBH Council reviewed the consultation results, and the final list of kit was agreed. At the same time negotiations took place with “Supreme Sports”, who provided us samples of various items of kit. The samples were of good quality, and the costs for each item of kit was then agreed.

COLUMBA BLANGO WINS 400m GOLD IN EUROPEANS – COLUMBA has just come back from Bydgoszcz in Poland, where he won the gold medal in the T20 400m at the European Para Championships. In the Final COLUMBA produced a personal best (47.90) taking .39 of a second off his 2019 time, and ranks him UK No.1 T20 in 2021.

One thing I told COLUMBA, that after completing his 400m final in Bydgoszcz, this was his 142nd career race. Question has any other Shaftesbury athlete, come anywhere near this mark, please let me know.

COLUMBA started his athletics career with South London Harriers in 2010, and ran his first 400m race that year. He then joined Victoria Park & Tower Hamlets in 2016 until 2019, when he joined Shaftesbury. His notable performances include, Bronze medallist at the Middlesex Championships 200m 2016. Silver Medallist Indoor 400m South of England Championship 2018. Silver Medallist 400m Middlesex County Championships 2018. Gold Medallist 400m Champion Middlesex Indoors and Outdoors.

Beginning – I had a slow and under developed cognitive thought process growing up. This affected my ability to absorb, interpret and understand information when spoken to. Regularly psychological testing was done to assess my cognitive abilities and would be a while until I was at the stage of independent thinking without the aid of others for assistance. As I got older, that was no longer an issue as I had grown past those obstacles.

Athletics – My participation in athletics started from 14 years but it was already evident my talent for the sport came naturally. It was a matter of nurturing my natural talent for athletics which gave me a greater focus over my energy in the long term. It was really up to 16 years where I started taking athletics seriously joining my first club South London Harriers based at Crystal Palace.  From then, I had progressed into the athlete I am now.

T20 Category – This category falls under cognitive functioning of the mind whereby you are unable to clearly understand information. As my event in this category is the 400m, it is the hardest race in all other 400m category races to participate in. Personally, in my condition, I am better off now when I was before 18 years where it was more challenging then. Participating in athletics with these field of athletes has given me a greater level of respect having been exposed around able and non-abled athlete environments.

Classification – Classification had just been confirmed in December 2020 but was not internationally classified in the T20 till April 2021. To further elaborate on the classification, I first had to confirm my abilities in the race held in Italy Venice which was successful. From there, I had only progressed rapidly via hard work and enjoying the progression of learning and being the best athlete I can be. Recently, my latest achievement is European record holder and champion over the T20 400m in Poland, Bydgoszcz. I have not fully grasped the weight of the accomplishment but looking to achieve more and remain humble doing it also.

JONATHAN KILSBY’S MEMORIAL DAYJONATHAN loved Trent Park; as children, we lived only a few hundred yards from its entrance and, throughout his life, it was a one of his favourite training areas.  To commemorate JONATHAN’S life, we are going to have a walk-in Trent Park on Saturday 31st July.  All of JONATHAN’S friends, family and colleagues are invited to join us.  It will be a very informal event, with a walk of about an hour to one of JONATHAN’S most loved areas of the park, where we will stop and have our own thoughts about his kind, good humoured and generous life.

The first fixture of the new National Athletics League, which took place at Lee Valley on Sunday, and our Senior Men and Women competed together for the first time. We had an impressive line up, but in a seesaw match, we finished in third place to Thames Valley Harriers and Birchfield Harriers. Individually we had 29 winners.

Our Young Athletes were taking part in the second fixture of the Middlesex Young Athletes League, at Finsbury Park on Saturday and Perivale on Sunday. It turned out to be the same result as fixture one, when we finished second to London Heathside. Individually we had 27 winners.

Two performances that stood out, first MARK PEARCE in Budapest, Hungary, ran a personal best (8:30.60) in the 3000m Steeplechase. He is now closing in on DAVE BEDFORD’S club record of (8:28.6) which he ran at Crystal Palace in 1971.

SCOTT LINCOLN in Gothenburg, Sweden produced a personal best (20.81m) adding 16cm to his 2020 put. SCOTT started his athletic career as an Under 15 in 2007, has now competed 259 times which includes qualification and finals. This is made up of 2 times with the 4kg shot, 23 times with the 5kg shot, 53 times with the 6kg shot and 181 times with the 7.26kg shot.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

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.

SBH ALL-TIME TOP 10Apologies, but due to the vast amount of results this week, I have run out of time. Therefore I will publish next week any all-time performances, which I am sure will be many.

THIS WEEK’S RESULTS – With the UK Championships and Trials for the Olympic Games just 3 weeks away, our athlete’s performances are ramping up. You can see on the statistics this was our best week by far, with 46 season bests, 80 personal bests, and 28 UK top 11 performances.

We had 8 athletes competing for GB & NI in the European Team Championships in Poland. At Bedford ALEXA EICHELMANN U23 finished an exceptional 8th with a personal best by (590 Points) in the Heptathlon at the England Combined Events Championships. At Harrow our U17/U20 athletes produced a solid performance in our first team fixture of the season, finishing 2nd to the home team Harrow and Dacorum in the UK Youth Development League. There were so many outstanding performances to single out, therefore read on.
Albeit there was one performance that deserves a special mention, in Portland, Oregon, LIZZIE BIRD ran a 3000m Steeplechase, in a personal best (9:26.73) taking 3.40 seconds off her own Club Record (9:30.13) set in 2019, and ranks her UK No.1 in 2021. At the start of 2019, her best time then was (9:53.59), then 7 races later, LIZZIE had taken just over 23 seconds of that time, culminating with the then Club Record. LIZZIE set her (9:30.13) in the World Championships in Doha, Qatar on a hot and humid day. Arguably her best performance of that year, was in the British Championships in Birmingham, where she and ROSIE CLARKE battled toe to toe, eventually LIZZIE took the silver medal, just .29 of a second behind ROSIE.

JONATHAN KILSBY’S MEMORIAL DAYJONATHAN loved Trent Park; as children, we lived only a few hundred yards from its entrance and, throughout his life, it was a one of his favourite training areas.  To commemorate JONATHAN’S life, we are going to have a walk-in Trent Park on Saturday 31st July.  All of JONATHAN’S friends, family and colleagues are invited to join us.  It will be a very informal event, with a walk of about an hour to one of JONATHAN’S most loved areas of the park, where we will stop and have our own thoughts about his kind, good humoured and generous life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will meet at midday at the carpark by the Trent Park Café, near the Cockfosters entrance to the park. (Post code: EN4 0JY).  https://goo.gl/maps/GoZe6V4hvt18MpZKA/a>
If you are a runner then, on the same morning, Barnet and District Athletic Club will be completing their training session in JONATHAN’S memory.  They will be meeting at 9:00 at the same location and training for around 90 minutes.  Runners from all JONATHAN’S former running clubs and of all abilities are welcome.
There is no need, at this point, to let us know if you intend coming along.  We appreciate that planning anything at the moment has its challenges, particularly two months in advance.  We will email again, two weeks before the 31st July, with any further details and updates to the day.

TOP 10 ATHLETICS MOVIES OF ALL-TIMEThe following article and photograph was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph of HAROLD ABRAHAMS by GETTY IMAGES.

Plenty of great films have been made about the No.1 Olympic sport but the gold medal has to go to Chariots of Fire. Here are some of best films about running and athletics ever made.

1 Chariots of Fire The story of sprinters HAROLD ABRAHAMS and ERIC LIDDELL in their build-up to the 1924 Paris Olympics deservedly won four Oscars. It is 40 years since it hit the cinema but the images of the athletes running on the beach under leaden skies to the backdrop of music from VANGELIS still manages to put a chill down the spine. The May issue of AW magazine features an in-depth article by the athletics advisor for the movie, TOM MCNAB – to buy a copy CLICK HERE

2 Gallipoli Coincidentally, like Chariots of Fire, this was also released in 1981. It is more of an anti-war movie than an athletics film, but the two lead actors, MEL GIBSON and MARK LEE, play talented sprinters in Australia who join the army to fight in the First World War in Turkey. The film begins with an inspirational pre-race pep talk by LEE’S coach and a barefoot race against a man on horseback before a professional ‘gift’ race and then, finally, a tragic sprint out of the trenches into No Man’s Land. 

3 The Games A marathon movie that divides opinion, the plot centres on four runners from Britain (MICHAEL CRAWFORD), America (RYAN O’NEAL), Czechoslovakia (CHARLES AZNAVOUR) and Australia (ATHOL COMPTON) as they prepare for the Rome Olympics. Directed by MICHAEL WINNER in 1970, it is cheesy and cliched in parts but it caught my imagination when watching it first time as a teenager. CRAWFORD, who was a useful runner in reality, is pushed to breaking point by his maniacal coach, played by STANLEY BAKER, in the quest for the two-hour marathon!

4 Geordie – BILL TRAVERS plays a Scottish strongman who competes in the 1956 Olympics in the hammer. It came out in 1955 but is still an enjoyable watch as TRAVERS, who is dubbed ‘Wee Geordie’ in the film due to his scrawny physique as a child, does a bodybuilding course and eventually grows into an Olympic thrower. 

5 Without Limits This is the best movie made about the iconic American distance runner STEVE PREFONTAINE. BILLY CRUDUP plays the runner and DONALD SUTHERLAND his coach BILL BOWERMAN, while it is co-produced by TOM CRUISE. The action sequences, especially of Munich Olympics, are brilliantly shot and it is a fine tribute to the short life of one of America’s best-known athletes. 

6 Fast Girls Deliberately brought out to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics, the film sees working-class athlete (LENORA CRICHLOW) and the posh and spoiled rival sprinter (LILY JAMES) come together in a sprint relay team. It’s a feel-good and fun film, although it’s no Chariots of Fire.

7 Jericho Mile A prisoner (PETER STRAUSS) convicted of murder trains as a runner in the prison yard and soon realises he has Olympic potential. Originally made for television, it went on to win three Emmy Awards, although it feels a little dated now as it came out in 1979.

8 Marathon Man – DUSTIN HOFFMAN plays a keen runner who gets embroiled in a plot by a Nazi war criminal (LAURENCE OLIVIER) to find stolen diamonds. It is brilliant, but more of a thriller than an actual athletics film. Similarly, movies like Forrest Gump, Run, Lola, Run and The Imitation Game about computer genius and top-class distance runner ALAN TURING only merit a side mention on this list due to not being bona fide athletics movies. 

9 McFarland Based on a true story, KEVIN COSTNER builds a team of cross-country runners from humble backgrounds who go on to win state titles. It had a low-key release in 2015 but is a genuine running movie with a great plot and a big-name actor to give it kudos. 

10 Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner The oldest movie on this list, it came out in 1962 and features TOM COURTENAY as a rebellious teenager who ends up in borstal but gains pleasure from distance running. Ultimately he faces a showdown with upper-class boys from a local public school when they compete against the boys from the borstal in a cross-country race.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

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.
