A quick note from John T following some great results at the Tipton Open:
“Hi Everyone, Today Fred T broke his own M35 800m club record set in 2013 whilst competing at a BMC meeting at Tipton. His time was 1.56.8. Also competing at the same meeting were M50 Rob Andrew whose time of 2 06.1 was a seasons best and M40 Paul Thompson who recorded 2.14.

Well done Fred, Rob and Paul!”

Stoke AC OpenBrian Higson reports on some great performances by our U13s at the Stoke AC Open:

“Jasmine Walker had a fantastic debut performance for RSC by winning the Under-13 girls’ javelin competition at the Stoke Athletic Club’s open meeting last Saturday. Her best throw of 27.06 metres not only broke the club’s long-standing record by over two metres, but also was the longest throw by an under-13 girl in the West Midlands this year. What is so remarkable is that Jasmine only took up javelin throwing four weeks ago and this was her first ever competition. There is plenty more to come!

Other successes at the Stoke meeting involving under-13 Royal Sutton athletes included Freya Liddington who won silver medals in the long jump (with a new PB of 4.40m) and the shot putt and Maddie Hammond with bronze medals in the 1200 metres and shot putt.”

Muninder_and_GrahamMuninder_Gold_1 Graham Felton reports on a fantastic day for Muninder Singh Hayer at the CPISRA World Games in Nottingham:
“Muninder Singh Hayer yesterday won Gold at the CPISRA World Games in Nottingham. In addition he also set a new World Record (subject of course to ratification). Muninder is an F31 Seated Club Thrower and this was his first International Competition.
Muninder is part of a very successful England team competing at these games and in spite of his nerves, the wet weather, and having just 2 weeks to get used to his new throwing frame he rose magnificently to the occasion and realised the first of his ambitions.
He will have 3 more competitions this year before settling down to a hard winter training schedule, aimed at getting him to the level needed for selection for The Paralympic Games in Rio next year.
This Gold Medal is the first at International Level. No doubt there will be more to come as Muninder is still only 20 years old and only started training 18 months ago.”

Donald Brown - Bronze MedalGreat news from Lyon. Donald Brown today won a bronze medal in the 4x100m at the World Championships. Well done Donald!!!
