PAC News 28, 16th July 2019

By 17/07/2019Junior, Senior

The news of PAC at ESAA in Birmingham!

They arrived in Birmingham on Thursday, July 11, part of an enormous event involving thousands of athletes. They became, from 10.00 am Friday, part of a non-stop momentum with up to five events happening at the same time for seven hours for two days!  It was typically impressive but, for some, overawing and causing some to feel like observers – although they, as athletes, were really the centre of attention.  Officials were excellent but unobtrusive. Stunning!

In that theatre we had eight athletes: they had mixed fortunes – but all had been selected on merit and deserved to be there! Emily Parker (IG 1500 S/Ch) ran well and pushed for 5th but came a close 6th, breaking her own Club Record.

Ben Lewis, running on a track with an outside water-jump only 150m from the start, fell on the ramp, slipped again, pressed on from near the back and led again: but that effort took its toll and he finished a determined 6th.  What might have been?  Adam Booth, competing for Hampshire Schools, qualified for his 110H final. Dan Sanchez just missed qualifying but set a legal PB in the JB 200.  Will and Ashia pushed initially but could not sustain the pace. Fleur landed badly from the step phase of her first TJ and could not jump with any confidence. Imogen was disappointed with her throws.  Much to learn!

(Key: JB= u15, IG = u17, SB and SG = u20)
