Weekly update- 11th June 2024

It’s been rather hectic recently and unfortunately, I’ve been a little incapacitated so there’s plenty to catch up to do in what will bee a bumper edition. So, I’ll work my way through what I can find and I apologise in advance if I miss anything, I’ll blame the pain killers. I’ve trawled through the results on Power of 10 so if they’re not on there I won’t find them. This will take us up to the 11thJune so some from the weekend may appear later in the week.

Here goes…..there was some track action in the Loughborough PB Classic where Seb Palmer clocked 2.18.65 for 5th place and 2nd U13 over 800m, Oscar Davis was 2nd over 1500 in 4.09.52, There was more action on the oval at the University of Birmingham Track & Field Series Meeting on Wednesday evening where Theo Ulfig was 2nd in his race over 800 in 2.30.81, Lila Pearce was 3rd in the same race in 2.32.46.
