Sprint Update

In the past few weeks, in the run up to the rescheduled British Championships in September Rebecca Jeggo has been laying down a great foundation for her acceptance of her invitation to compete there.

At the recent London Inter Club Challenge events Rebecca opened up with her first 100m race of the year with a win in 12.01s into a difficult 2.3mps headwind.

Rebecca followed that with third place a high class 200m race which including international and Olympic athletes. Running into a 2.1mps wind she clocked 24.66s.

At the Chelmsford sprint evening, racing the 100m in horrendous wet conditions, but this time a following wind of 2.5mps, Rebecca won her race in a new PB of 11.67s.

Rebecca will compete again at the Special South of England event in Chelmsford at the end of August before the British Championships, and hopes to continue to improve despite the situation we have found ourselves in this summer.

Charlie Dobson also put in an awesome performance in Loughborough at the international invitational where he stepped up to the 400m. Charlie ran a phenomenal time of 45.84s to win his race. The time places Charlie second in the overall 2020 UK rankings and first in the under 23 rankings.

Also managing to be active is Jakub Walecki who won the English Schools virtual High Jump competition with a 1.90m clearance earning him an English Schools certificate.
