12/13 July 2019 - English Schools T&F Championships, Birmingham

English Schools Track and Field Championships 2019

This weekend saw 45 Blackheath and Bromley HAC athletes competing for various counties at the 89th edition of the English Schools Track and Field Championships, in Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium. The stadium, home to British Athletics, is soon to be rebuilt and upgraded in time for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. According to England Athletics, English Schools is the “4th largest athletics event in the world”, therefore this is a very prestigious event for young athletes to compete in. Across the weekend Blackheath and Bromley athletes won four golds, five silvers, two bronzes and four international vests.

In the junior boy’s pole vault, Ben Platt secured an equal PB of 3.50m and a silver medal for Kent in his debut English Schools, after only recently taking up the event. County teammate, Adam Islam Medeaux, also competing in his first English Schools, automatically qualified in his heat for the 300m final where he came a strong 6th.

Amerisa Sibley had a busy weekend running three 800s over the two days. She securely made both the semis and the final where she finished an impressive 5th with an outdoor PB of 2:14.46. Also in the junior girls 800m, Imogen Hadley put in a solid performance for Surrey. Hannah Clark and Kate Price competed in a tough junior girls 1500m, representing Kent and Surrey, respectively. Last year’s English Schools 100m champion, Tyra Khambai-Annan, executed two great races despite a strong head wind, and just missed out on the final.

Adding extra excitement to the day, the athletes placing first and second in the final of any inter event are selected to compete for England in next week’s schools international (SIAB) in Swansea, Wales against Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

In the inter boys 1500m Oliver Bright improved on last year’s 4th place, to finish a massive 2nd securing his first international track & field vest, to add to his cross-country England vest. Oliver Briars will also represent England in Wales next week after equaling last year’s 2nd place in the inter boys 400m. In their heats both boys easily qualified for their finals. Jeriel Quainoo claimed silver in the inter boys 200m final, after securing a PB of 21.60 in the semi-final. He will be representing England at the SIAB next weekend.Competing for London at his first ever English Schools, Reece Nelson placed 5th in the 200m heat, impressive considering he’s only been competing for one year. Barnaby Corry kicked off the weekend’s field events in the pole vault, coming 4th, a year young. Jacob Byfield competed in the triple jump after a tiring Duke of Edinburgh camp. He still has another year in the age group to improve on this year’s performance. In the discus Dillon Claydon threw 43.22m, very close to his PB, to secure 8th; he also has another year in the age group.

Nana Gyedu threw 15.06m to win the inter girls shot by over a meter, making this her third English schools title in a row and second England selection! Zsiriah Thomas had a fantastic weekend competing in the heats, semis, and final of the 100m, finishing 3rd at her first ever English Schools. In the inter girls 80m hurdles Shakanya Osahon just missed out on the semi-finals, but she still has another year in the intermediate age group. In their first year as inters Naomi Toft and Annie Thomas represented London in the 1500m and 3km, respectively. The club had three girls in the inter girls 1500m steeplechase, all competing at their first English Schools. Ellie Osmond and Ailbhe Barnes represented London and Livvy Berry competed for Kent. All three are fairly new to steeplechase and have made great improvements this year. Ailbhe Barnes ran superbly securing a PB of 5:11 and a bronze medal. Ellie and Livvy both had strong runs in this tough event.

Alex O’Callaghan-Brown stormed to a fantastic gold in the seniors 400m hurdles. Training partner, Josh Watson, placed 4th in his 110m hurdles final in 14.52. Alex and Josh also helped Surrey to win a silver in the 4x100 relay. Angus Harrington, also competing for Surrey in his last English Schools, ran bravely in both the heat and final. His gutsiness secured him 4th place in the final despite being clipped in the home straight. Competing in his first English Schools, Kelechi Aguocha came 2nd in the high jump for Kent, jumping 2.04, just 3cm off gold. Also in the high jump, Harrison Thorne came 5th, jumping 1.92cm for Berkshire, despite carrying an injury. Pedro Gleadall came 5th in the pole vault with 4.50m, just short of his best. In the long jump Ben Sutton, the Kent team captain, jumped 6.80m for 4th and Miles Xavier jumped 6.73 for 6th, 4cm off his best, in a very close competition. In their first year in the age group, Kyle Reynolds-Warmington and Jak Mensah executed solid races in the 100m heats, with Jak running a PB of 11.02 and Kyle clocking a SB time of 10.97. Despite these great performances the boys just missed out on the final.

In the senior girl's javelin Lauren Farley threw a PB of 45.66m to take gold which ranks her 2nd in Britain so far this year. Eloise Locke, Kent captain, put in a solid performance despite missing lots of training due to illness. Grace Scopes, on the comeback from injury, competed in the 400 hurdles at her first English Schools and her first race since May. Jade Oni finished 5th in the triple jump with 11.84m. Hannah MacAulay came 6th in the discus, throwing 38.47m. In the pole vault Lois Warden jumped a great personal best of 3.60m to place 4th.

We also had seven 2nd claim athletes competing at the champs. In the inter boys shot Nathan Bushnell came 4th. Oliver Early came 5th in the 100m hurdles heat for Essex. In the senior boy’s long jump Theo Adesina took the gold by jumping 7.02m in the last round, his third ever jump over the 7-meter mark. Sam Illsley competed in the senior boy’s hammer for Sussex. In the senior girl’s long jump Funminiyi Olajide placed 5th. She also helped the Essex girls achieve gold in the 4x100m relay. Danielle Hopkins and Ashleigh West placed 5th and 9th, respectively in the senior girl’s high jump.

Some high-profile athletes were missing at English Schools this weekend due to being selected for the European U20s this coming week. Good luck to Louise Evans in the 400m and 4x400 and Marcia Sey in the 100m hurdles in Boras, Sweden.

Well done to everyone who competed this weekend!!

BBHAC Development Day, Sunday 24th March 2019







Blackheath and Bromley organised a 'Development Day' on Sunday at Norman Park to give young athletes (school years 6-11) the chance to try out new events; and 50 came along to try something new including the pole vault and javelin. The event was held in brilliant sunshine and was opened by Shannon Hylton, club member and GB international with a warm and inspirational welcome for our Young Athletes. The club would like to thank the Parents Council for leading the organisation of the event and all the coaches, team managers, officials, club athletes and other volunteers who assisted with this event. In addition to recruiting some athletes the event also raised over £200 for club funds through the 2nd hand kit sale and registration fees.
