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.

STONEX STADIUM NOW OPEN – StoneX Stadium is now open to Club members, under strict conditions. Check with your Coach for details.

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.
