Yet again, another raft of excellent performances for the Sprint Team.

So we had 12 1st place performances and one new club record from the U15 boys 4x100m team. (I had already left so I don’t know who ran – you’ll need to let me know so I can get the records updated).

There were also 13 PB performances.

100m 13.8 Katie George

100m 14.0 Kitty Smithson

Sprint Performance – Wiltshire County Championships

City of Salisbury Sprint Performance

Saturday was a great day in terms of sprint performance for the Sprint Team once the rain eventually stopped. There were some excellent performances and some outstanding pb’s considering the rain and the wind.

It is difficult to pull out highlights because there were so many, so I can only comment on the two championship records. Austen Lane won double gold against old rival Will Kennedy in the 100m and 200m with the 100m breaking the championship record. The finishes were very tight, none more so than the 100m which were separated by only 1/100th second. Thank heavens for photo-finish.

Jacob Ness broke his own championship record in the 400m with a 48.73, knocking ½ second off last years mark. This was his first proper race after struggling with a niggling hamstring since the start of the year so it was a relief for all of us for him to put in a decent performance.

Summary is 9 Golds, 9 silver, 7 bronze and 11 personal best performances and two Championship Records.

See the full list below:


Austen Lane 100m (CR), 200m

Alice Smith 200m, 300m

Wiltshire County Athletics Championships

Wiltshire County Athletics Championships is less than there weeks away.

The county championships are the pinnacle for many athletes and it acts as a club championships for us in the absence of our own. We have an outstanding record at the Counties as a club.

Many of you haven’t entered yet, and if you aren’t entered shortly,  your names won’t be entered on the photo finish system, on the tee shirts or in the program. Also entering on the day is more expensive.

Get on with it! Here’s the link to help you along.

Sprint Bounds drill video

Bounds #coachseye

This is what I mean when what happens in drills occurs in runs.
Rear leg should be flat coming through as shown by Andrew not vertical like Sophie and Bea.
Thigh should drive through like Lizzie’s not low like Jons but plant beneath the hip by driving downward like Jakes not forward of the hip.
Liz is rotating across the shoulders caused by the hips not being tilted high enough.
