National Juvenile Championships Day 1 and 2

We’ve had a great weekend at the national championships -
On Saturday, James (U12) won a silver medal in the long jump with a super jump of 4.40m, he also placed 8th in the 600m (a great mornings work!).
The following athletes competed very hard for the club & just missed the podium:
Jennifer  (4th place in the HJ with a very close attempt at 1.55m that she just missed, next time)
Rayhan (5th place in the U16 LJ with 5.84m, slightly down on his best but this was Rayhan’s 1st club national champs so a great learning experience for him)
Niamh (12th place in the U14 Javelin with a throw of 20.16m, Niamh has competed really hard this year and is improving with every competition)
On Sunday, Jennifer & Nadi were both crowned National Champs again 
Jen (U15) soared out to a huge new PB of 5.47m to win the long jump title & Nadi flew down the track to 80m victory in the u14 category. Also deserving special mention is Kevin (u17) who ran a 400m PB of 55.61s to Q for the 400m final, Alex (U17) placing 8th in 100m final. Niamh (u14) setting a new PB of 4.37m in the LJ, Rayhan just missed the 100m u16 final setting a new PB of 11.96s as did Alan (U18) as he recorded a new PB of 11.99s, Mathew (U14) who competed really hard in the 2000m race walk & young James (U12) who sped down the track in the 60m. Well done athletes & coaches, roll on day 3!!

RunZone March Athlete of the Month

The RunZone athlete of the month for March is Nadislane Kabongo!

Nadi won the National Indoor 60m title last month in a super-fast time of 8.17 seconds. This makes her the fastest girl indoors and out – she’s the reigning 80m champion, having won at nationals last July in an equally blistering 10.54.

She also won a silver medal in the regional schools shot putt!

Nadi is an excellent trainer, with huge potential for the future, and we’re all very excited to see how she develops.
