Surrey T&F Championships 2018

In the recent Surrey Athletic Championships held at Kingston, the Club won gold medals in all age group from Under 13 to senior with wins both on the track and the field in both the men's and the women's events.

The outstanding performance from a Club member came from 12 year old Katie Sakaria who won the U13 800m crown by 20 metres with a championship best performance and Club record time of 2.17.63- an improvement of over four seconds on her previous best time. In the same age group Elizabeth Chapman won the discus with a throw of 18m 46 and Harrison Kingston the boy's javelin with a new best throw of 29.17.

Another Club record was broken when Naomi Townend leapt 2m 50 in the pole vault to win the U 15 title and better her previous best by 15cms. Susie Lecoutre retained her U15 800m title winning in 2.18.32.

Anton Joseph, in his first year in the age group, threw the hammer 45m 68 to win the U17 men's gold while Alice Hillary was victorious in the U17 300m hurdles in a time of 47.5.
