English Schools track and field championships 2016

Congratulations to all the athletes who competed at Gateshead this year. It was the best performance by a London team since I became a selector in 2002. Some highlights were:

  • ·         16 individual medals (7 gold, 7 silver and 2 bronze)
  • ·         2 relay gold medals with the Junior Boys breaking the ESAA championships record in their heat, and even with a very late replacement on 2nd leg they still beat the previous record when winning the final
  • ·         The Junior Girls won the trophy for highest total points in the 13  Group A counties, and Junior Boys were 2nd.
  • ·         WE came 3rd overall in the group A counties. Gwyn Williams has told me we came 2nd in 1996, 1999 and 2000 so lets aim to challenge Essex and Surrey for the overall title in 2017.
  • ·         Two Intermediate Girls selected for the Schools International on 16th July where Claudimira Landim came 2nd and Alexandra Brown came 4th

In the memory of Sylvester Akpalara, (a very talented runner, who competed several times for London Schools, and tragically lost his life in 2010), the LSAA created an annual award which is for the athlete who embraces the spirit of the 'English Schools Track & Field Championship'. The first receipient of the award is Victor Dos Santos Soares. Here is Victor receiving his award from the Associations Chairman, Gwyn Williams, at the '2011 Sainsbury's UK School Games'.
