Congratulations to all the athletes who competed at Birmingham this year.  The maximum number of athletes we are allowed to take was increased to 70 this year from 60. WE are aware that at least one county in our group of 11 had 70 athletes with national (as opposed to entry) standard so our aim of winning the A group was unrealistic this year, with just 25 athletes with that higher standard in our team. However our team results were very pleasing. Some highlights were:

  • ·         10 individual medals (7 gold and 3 silver)
  • ·         The SG relay team won a silver medal, beating the previous championship record
  • ·         3 more relay medals – 1 gold and 2 silver
  • ·         The Junior Girls were a close 2nd in the 11  Group A counties (only 3 pts below the winners); Intermediate and Senior Girls’ teams were both 3rd; Junior and Intermediate Boys’ teams were both 4th.
  • ·         WE came 4th overall in the group A counties, so we’ll aim for 3rd or higher in 2018.
  • ·         Five Intermediate athletes were selected for the Schools International on 15th July. Lucy Lewis-Ward had already been selected to represent London Schools in that competition in 3000m walk.
