Congratulations to John Owens of the club who coaches Kayleigh Haggo ( Red Star AC) on her World Record and European title in RR3 100m over the weekend in Poland.
Meanwhile In Sweden saw Chris Bennett continuing his great form when he was first at the Folksan Grand Prix in Gothenburg with one of the longest throws of his career of 75.76m. Teddy Tchoudja and Jamie Burns were also competing at Manchester but no results as yet.
Closer to home we had 4 finishers at the Glasgow Milers Meeting which was moved to Linwood from Crownpoint on Friday due to Glasgow being in Level 3 restrictions. We have now moved to Level 2, and this will allow all our athletes to get back to the track.
All 4 athletes achieved PB performances at Linwood:
Matthew Fox U/15 800m 2.19.03
Katie Woods U/15 800m 2.33.33
David Woods U/17 3000m 9.57.69
Callum Oates Senior 3000m 9.18.75
Jethro Lennox was competing at a 60k Hill Race recently and early report show he was 1st 13 minutes clear, full report to follow.
48 of our younger athletes have been competing in the 4J Studios Virtual SUPERteams Challenge May 2021 over May. Each athlete did a 75m, 600m, Long Jump and Overhead Throw. Some great performances from everyone. The Boys A team of Abraham Lanahan, Zack Hutton, Joseph Lanahan and Lucas Millican finished 7th and the Girls A team of Esme Guinea, Zoe Roberts, Stella Barrett and Eva Porteous, we had 5 boys teams who finished with 4 girls teams.
Also 9 of our Under 9 were competing in their own event with Olivia Lennon and Naod Woldeselassie winning their respective events
In the individual event Abraham finished an excellent 4th and Esme was the top girl and finished 39th in the National Results. Well done to everyone and a HUGE thank you to all the volunteeers who helped with the competition.
This month sees 16 of our Under 12 heading to Aberdeen for the first National face to face Superteams Events since February 2020 and everyone is looking forward for some great competition.
