Surrey Championships - May 2019



Surrey Championships 2019

The Club returned from a successful weekend at the Surrey County Championships, held at Kingsmeadow stadium, with 15 gold medals, 18 silver and 10 bronze.

The middle distance athletes were in great form with two of them winning two golds each. Chloe Crossman won the senior 800m on Saturday and followed this up on Sunday by winning the 1500m in a personal best time of 4.34.65. Katie Sakaria in her first year as an U15 won the 800m and the 300m on Sunday, both with personal best times of 2.13.01 and 41.45. The latter time was a Championship Best Performance.  Harry Boyd almost did the double as he finished second in the U20 1500m on Saturday but clinched the 800m title on Sunday.

Jasmine Mitchell won her first senior county title when she won the 400m in a new outdoor pb of 58.9.

In the U17 age group Susie Lecoutre won the 800m, Amelie Attenborough the 1500m in a new pb of 4.48.31 and Sam Martin the 3000m in a new personal best of 9.04.72.

Eleven year old Tabitha Brown not only won the U13 1500m in a new best 5.00.70 but showed her versatility by winning gold in the javelin.

The club's hammer throwers won three titles.  Peter Cassidy won the senior men's,

Jessica Pelham the U20 women's and Anton Joseph the U17 men's which he won with a personal best throw of 52m 53. Although beaten by Kingston's Pippa Wingate, Cathy Coleman's silver medal winning throw of 52m 16 beat her own Club record.

Although Club athletes won numerous silver and bronze medals in the jumps there was only one gold medal winner at the Surrey Championships and that was Samuel Sherlock who took the U15 boy's long jump title with a leap of 5m 66.  However in the Sussex Championships held at Crawley there was a win in the U20 pole Vault for Jessica Hall.
