Planning for the licenced event started on 12 th September with the idea
shared with the field event coaches. It is hoped that all athletes who have
competed for the club in the events offered this year were contacted. My
apologies if anyone was missed who had competed for the Senior club
The athletes who took part will have appreciated that the event was
supported by a very good set of efficient field judges assisted by coaches and parents.
I have introduced a number of young athletes to a variety of events and this
was their first ever competition. Obviously they set their own bench mark.
Tiwa and Sam remain under 11s for another year. Tiwa has been the male star
of the Quadkids athletes at the Avon league fixtures this year. Charlotte
(Lottie) has made a good start and now has to move on to the 400gm javelin.
Sam is making progress. Taking part was a good experience for all three.
Oskar Lovell had a super day with three PBs. Javelin 23.27m is a substantial
improvement but not a surprise to me. PBs in long jump and shot confirming
his all round progress. For javelin he is probably ranked 3 rd U12 in the South
Alana Cooper also U12 improved her javelin PB and there is more to come
Esme Mckenzie, Joshua Toms and Daniel Webb all set new PBs in the long
jump. Florence Thomas similarly but in the triple jump and Max Jackson in
Dean Garret was the only other shot putter to improve a PB.
Friends taking part also made improvements to their PBs Corey Summers,
Team Bath javelin 51.49m, Navya Wilkins, Yate & District SP 6.66m and
William Willetts, Team Bath triple jump 12.62m. Navya equalled her high jump
Cadel Anaya is listed as a non competing member and looks like he will be
needed for the U13 team next year.
I have thanked the officials as well as those who helped in any way to make
the event run smoothly providing a good morning of activity. I’m sure those
who competed benefitted from having a last chance to climb the rankings.
So in addition to those named above there were many other good
performances which have been submitted to Powerof10.
