Update from two very proud coaches weekend first from Claudio.
Welsh Indoor Championships January 31st
After coming 1st and 2nd in the Welsh U20 400m Championships on the 16th January Ellis Greatrex & Psalm Roberts-Nash competed in the Senior Champs over the same distance.
After qualifying from heats yesterday in the afternoon the 400m Final, 4 hours later, gave the club another 1st & 2nd place again beating the Welsh athletes. Ellis has now the U20 and Senior title with Psalm in 2nd. I have uploaded videos of heats and final onto ” You Tube” ( getting to be quite good at this ). Search for ” Welsh Senior Indoor Champs 400m 31.01.16″ and you will be able to see the 2 heats and final.
Then from Howard Court
Sport City Manchester 31st January 31st
600m Travis Christie and Tor Bennett Williams
Gun went .. Travis raced to the front quickly opening up a good lead on the field, as the first lap ended Tor with a more cautious start moved in to second place , as the second lap ended and the bell went Travis was still well clear with Tor holding second place , as the strong pace began to tell on Travis the lead shortened with Tor throwing everything in of the last bend ,but Travis held on to win in an excellent time and PB with Tor second in a PB
1st Travis Christie ……………….. 1 24.43
2nd Tor Bennett Williams …….. 1 24.79
40 minutes buy levitra canada later the lads ran the 200m with Tor winning a close race in his best time for two years ,with Travis second with a PB!
To run times like that 40 minutes after a grinding 600m test Is fantastic ,it shows just what shape they are in and what will be coming up for them in 2016 ,to make this even more special , neither have seen a pair of blocks and have not trained indoors at all WATCH THIS SPACE !!!!!
It was a good day overall with all the group performing strongly ,some in their very first competition out side of school ,sadly Davian Stewart pulled up with an injury in the 60m .leading by a metre and going away in a race that was won in 7.20 ,Davian would have smashed his PB and almost certainly broke 7 seconds.
Ethan Court was unable to defend his top ranking after having a further operation on his arm but is back for the Midland Open in February.
Indoor PB.s for Lois Nimako & Ellie Larkin in the 200m … Sofoa Fereday in the 60m Hurdles.
