BLACKHEATH & BROMLEY RACEWALKING GIRLS HELP ENGLAND WIN BACK THE NIHILL SHIELD

Isabelle Bridge and Abigail Smith travelled to Tullamore, southern Ireland as part of the England team selected to walk against Ireland in the annual Paul Nihill Shield match for up and coming young racewalkers.

In a starting field of 13 walkers, 10 of which were unknown Irish girls, Abigail employed sound race tactics to secure a win in the Under 14 girls 2km race, 3 seconds ahead of the runner up and gaining a new Personal Best of 11:05 over that distance on the track.

With strict judging already evident and a number of walkers disqualified, Isabelle stepped up to represent England in the Under 17 girls 3km race, walking very close to her Personal Best over this distance on the track. She secured 3rd place overall and was the first English girl home in a time of 16:28.

England won the match overall scoring 44 points to Irelandís 41 points.

Isabelle will yet again be walking at an International level when she represents English Schools at the annual Schools International Athletic Board Track and Field event against Wales, Scotland and Ireland in Dublin this weekend.

SUCCESS FOR BLACKHEATH & BROMLEY HARRIERS GIRLS AT THE RACE WALKING ASSOCIATION YOUNG AGE GROUP NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, COVENTRY ON SATURDAY 29TH APRIL 2017

Having both been chosen to represent the Southern Area of the Race Walking Association at Lee Valley the previous weekend in an Inter-Area match against the Midlands and the North and helping the Southern Area to secure a win overall by coming second in their respective races, training partners Isabelle Bridge and Abigail Smith travelled to Coventry for their second National competition in a week.

A closely fought battle and a nail biting finish saw Abigail Smith (coached by former Olympian Shaun Lightman) win the Under 13 girls 2km walk by 3 seconds in a new Personal Best time over that distance of 11 mins 32 secs. She received the Uxbridge Cup from Ann Perry, President of the Race Walking Association.

Also representing the Club and coached by Shaun Lightman was our Breakthrough Athlete of 2016, Isabelle Bridge, who came a secure 3rd in the Under 17 girls 5 km walk, beating her rival Alice Bellando by 26 seconds in a new Personal Best time for this 5 km course of 29 mins 3 seconds. A fantastic achievement as Isabelle has only recently moved up to the 5km distance.
