Weekly Update 21st July 2023

Let’s start this week with an explanation. I had been sent details of the last Senior League meeting at Sutton Coldfield by email, the spreadsheet attached to that email had the mens results for the most recent event at Sutton Coldfield but the womens attachement had not been updated still held the details from the previous one. As a result the weekly update included performances from people like Lattie Samuels, Freya Hooper, Audrey Wilson etc that related to the previous event rather than the one at Sutton. So let’s start with tidying that up, the mens results were correct but here are the womens performances. Audrey Wilson was 6th in the 100 SW A in 19.9 and Louise Webster placed 3rd in the 100 SW B in 14.8. Audrey was 3rd in 6.12.3 in the 1500 SW A with Louise 1st in 6.13.3 in the B race. Louise was 3rd in the SW A shot with 8.93 while Audrey threw 4.97 for 5thplace in the B event, Louise was 4th in the discuss with a throw of 19.08, 3rd in the hammer with 41.91 and in the javelin threw 25.44 for 2nd place. That should clarify a few thinks, thanks to Claudio Albanese for highlighting it.

Turning now to more track action the club were in action at Tipton in the Triangular League.
