Diamond League, Young Athletes Upper Division and British University Champs

A busy weekend started well with a win for Dina Asher Smith in the 200m at the Diamond League meeting in Doha, winning in the worlds leading time of 22.26 by some margin. It might have been a club one-two but unfortunately Shannon Hylton was disqualified for a false start.

In the YDL Upper Age Group opening match BBHAC at Reading finished in the rare position of 2nd to Shaftesbury, so all to do if we are to continue representing GB in the European Club Finals next year. In the mens under 20 A string events there were wins for Ethan Brown over 200m, Matthew Knight over 400m, Angus Harrington over 800m, Aaron Enser over 3000m, Alex O’Callaghan Brown over 400m hurdles, Theo Adesina in the long jump, Kelechi Aguocha in the high jump, Pedro Gleadall in the pole vault and javelin, Ben Hawkes in the shot and a 70m plus hammer throw, Philip Bartlett in the discus and a win for the 4 x 400m team.

In the ladies under 20 events A string events Louise Evans won the 400m, Mallory Cluley the 100m hurdles and Jade Oni the triple jump, with Hannah MacAulay taking the shot and Lauren Farley winning the javelin, while in the mens under 17 A string events Ollie Briars won the 400m, Oliver Bright won both the 800m and 1500m, Barnaby Corry won the pole vault and Dillon Claydon the shot put. Wins were harder to come by in the under 17 ladies events with wins for Zsiriah Thomas over 100m and 200m, Olivia Berry won the 1500m steeplechase and Milly Savage the triple jump. Overall the team also achieved 14 B strong wins across the age groups and events.

In the British University Champs at Bedford the club had almost 20 athletes in action which may account for our team scores in the YDL. Pride of place goes to Alex Botterill who won the mens 800m, and to Bekah Walton who finally smashed through the 50m barrier winning the javelin with 53.66m. Annie Davies took a great third in the 100m hurdles, while Mary Adeniji finished 4th in the triple jump and Joe Fuggle 4th in the 400m hurdles.

This week the mens senior team are back in the Premier League with their opening tahc taking place in Swansea on Sunday.

London Marathon and US Collegiate Round-up

Eighteen club members finished the London Marathon at the weekend in ideal conditions with the first three under 3 hours which is a fantastic achievement. First home was Alex Gibbins in 2.39.42 followed by Luca Ercolani in 2.52.52 and Blair Wilson 3rd in 2.59.47. Anita Evenden was our first lady finisher in 5.03.07.

The younger athletes had their opportunity to represent their respective boroughs in the mini marathon events across various age groups where in the under 17 girls Sophie Hoare was 6th, Jessica Neal 15th, Tola Pearse 16th, while in the under 13 girls race Gaby Martin was a fantastic 4th and Tallulah Ndikanwu 14th, and in the under 15 girls race Hannah Clark was 3rd with Lara Mannes 17th.

With many of our junior athletes now studying and competing at numerous colleges in the US, the season is well under way as the various conference champs come along in early May and for those lucky enough and good enough to make the standard the NCAA Champs are in June so many athletes are coming into top form early in the season. Immanuela Aliu has clocked two great new pbs in the 100/200m with 11.50 and 23.44 in Tucson ranking her 2nd currently in the UK senior womens tables, and Katy-Ann McDonald studying at LSU in Baton Rouge has already clocked 2.06.47 and 4.31.02 for 800/1500m. Louise Evans recorded 55.15 in the 400m in Florida while Isabella Hilditch ran 13.81 in the 100m hurdles also in Florida for 4th in the UK rankings one place behind Annie Davies who recorded 13.71 in the UK earlier this month.

In the mens events Joe Ellis and Tom Parker both threw 70.88m and 63.46m respectively in the hammer at different meetings in Virginia, while is noted that Bailey Stickings recent 400m hurdles comeback currently leads the UK rankings.

At the BUCS Trials at Loughborough Dan Putnam ran a 21.52 windy 200m plus a good 48.42 400m, and Will Fuller clocked a solid 4.01.37 and 8.29.34 1500/3000m, with Charlie Davis setting a new pb of 8.44.53 in the same 3000m race. Jacob Brown won a good 800m in 1.53.52 and Bailey Stickings clocked 56.39 in the 400m hurdles.

At the time of writing there are still no results available from the YDL lower age group event held at the weekend, this is not unusual and will be reported in due course.

Southern League Opener, Adam Gemili and Paddock Wood Half Marathon

The senior BBHAC mens and ladies team won their opening Southern League Division 1 match by a huge margin at Gillingham with a score of 230.5 points from Medway 203, Crawley 167.5 and Southampton 148.

There were 12 A string wins for the men and 7 B string wins which included a 48.08 by Dan Putnam in the 400m for a new division record to accompany his 21.80 victory on the 200m, in addition to competing on both winning relays. The men won both A and B strings for all events between 100m and 1500m plus winning both relays. Awe Korede won the 100m in 10.91, Benjamin Gardiner the 800m in 1.57.11 and Lewis Mills won the 1500m. Bailey Stickings returned to action winning the 400m hurdles in 53.99, Ethan Kitteridge won the pole vault with 3.30m, Dele Aledese won the discus with 44.99m and Charlie Short took the hammer with 36.78m.

The highlight of the day among the womens events was a league record in the 4 x 400m where the team won by almost 24 seconds and set a new best of 3.40.54. With a very strong team on duty, Dina Asher Smith ran the first leg in an unusual distance for her but clocked a fantastic opener 52.60, with Shannon Hylton, Holly Mpassy and Krystal Galley completing the task of getting the baton round.

There were 12 A string wins for the ladies and 7 B string wins but mainly in the field events where England rugby international Shaunagh Brown won the shot, discus and hammer A string events, while Molly Savage won the triple jump, Jennifer Sheasby won the pole vault and Eloise Locke won the javelin. The club won both the short and long relay events while elsewhere on the track Krystal Galley won the 400m, Ellie Dolby won the 1500m, Annie Davies won the 100m hurdles and Millie Smith won the 2000m steeplechase by two and a half minutes.

In Grenada Adam Gemili continued his early season fine form in winning the 100m in 10.11 following on from a windy 10.14 set in Florida set a few weeks earlier.

The previous week we had many club athletes competing the Paddock Half Marathon as below.
