There was a very busy weekend of competition with the British Indoor champs, the EA age group champs and the national xc champs all on the same weekend.
British Indoor Championships, Glasgow – Sat 22nd & Sun 23rd Feb
Congratulations to James Williams who became British Indoor 400m champion in Glasgow this weekend. James, who normally competes in the shorter sprints stepped up to 400m for the indoor campaign and lead from gun to tape in a new PB of 47.24.
Our only other competitors in Glasgow were Emma Alderson who ran a SB of 56.35 in the 400m and Sophie Money who ran 7.94 in the 60m
EA Age Group Championships, Sheffield – Sat 22nd Feb
Congratulations to Henry Nwoke and Mia Morrisroe who came away with medals and the EA age group championships in Sheffield. Henry in his first year at U20 was running against older more experienced athletes and ran the performance of his life in the 60m to shatter his PB and equal the club senior record of 6.77. The photo finish was unable to split Henry and Jeremiah Azu, so both shared gold. In the 200m, Henry picked up a silver in another PB of 21.52.
Mia Morrisroe had another terrific weekend. On the Saturday, she finished 6th in a high quality U17W 60m final, having broken Katarina Johnson-Thompson’s 60m record in the heats with 7.73. On the Sunday, Mia smashed her PB to run 24.62 and collect the bronze with Neave McGhee finishing 5th.
