The success of Team GB at the European Champs wasn’t the only athletics success this weekend! Young athletes from Team RSC have emulated the success of their Team GB heroes at the Milands Championships.
Our very own Dina Asher-Smith, Isabel Male, who is a first year Under 15, took first place in the 100m final in a time of 12.45 secs. This is a new Club record beating her old outdoor record of 12.7 set earlier this year.
Jasmine Walker, a first year Under 17, continued her fine form in taking 2nd place in the Javelin.
Elsa Buchanan took 3rd place in the Under 15 Long Jump (just like Shara Proctor) in a new PB and she was 7th in the 300m Final.
Zara Buchanan was 11th in the Under 15 Long Jump in a new PB and she also set a PB in her heat of the 300m.
Like Adelle Tracey, Lucy Carey was 4th in the Under 15 800m final, having set a new PB in winning her heat. She also took 5th place in the 1500m Final.
Caitlin Ralph narrowly missed out on making the Final of the under 15 75m Hurdles after finishing in 3rd place in her heat.
James Ward (our Under 17 multi eventer) had a very busy few days competing in 5 events. He took 1st place in the Shot Put, 2nd place in the High Jump in a PB, 8th place in the 200m in a PB, 8th place in the 400m in a PB and 8th place in the Long Jump.
Joe Martin, a first year Under 17, who fractured his wrist approximately 10 days ago, took 8th place in the 800m Final.
Well done – we will be looking out for you all at a European Champs in the future!
