Goodluck to All Our UK Trialists

27 Jun

The UK Championships and Trials for selection for the European Games gets under way tonight (Friday 27th June 2014) at Alexander Stadium and first performer from the club will be Theo Campbell who has drawn Adam Gemili in his heat of the 200 metres – so good luck Theo. Apparently there are lots of club members and their families travelling to Birmingham to urge our athletes on so make some noise and let’s hope we have something to cheer. Emily Diamond was in the 4 x 400 quartet that finished fourth in the European Team Championship and Lucy Bryan finished ninth in the pole vault in the same event so both are in good form as are Dave Bishop and Steve Mitchell who finished fourth and eighth in the London Mile. We look forward to seeing some great results and hope that those who are competing at this level as a step up – such as Charlotte Green in the Women’s 3,000 metres steeplechase – learn a lot from the experience and return to next year’s event as potential future stars.
