Results from weekend meeting at Chelmsford
We had a couple of athletes competing at Chelmsford over last weekend in an open Meeting arranged by South of England Athletics. Rebekah Tyler in her first year as an under 20, despite doing no throws training at all this summer, took part in the shot and the discus. 9.77 metres with the 4k shot and 25.65 metres with the 1k discus were OK performances, though I’m sure Rebekah was hoping for something a little better.
Wayne Gadd was our other competitor – in the senior mens long jump (though he is approaching 45) – and he produced a good best jump of 5.56 metres. This is better than he did during the summer of 2019.
Tuesday evening training at East Court
Tuesday evenings at East Court will take place this Tuesday September 1. We will aim to finish this session at about 7.45. The coaches will need to consider the future of these Tuesday evening sessions with the nights rapidly drawing in – and of course with everybody soon back at school.
