BACK WITH VENGEANCES
Two of our leading Women performers over recent years stepped significantly onto the stage over the weekend.
On Saturday(18th),at the SAL at Twickenham,Mary Iheke,returning to serious action this summer, improved on her midweek 55.83 400 at Bromley to lower her own PB and Club Open Record to a classy 55.4,winning by the proverbial street;not to mention a nippy 24.8 200 down the same thoroughfare,both in virtually windless conditions.
On Sunday,(19th),Club General Secretary,Dominique Blaize,romped to victory over all her rivals at the Loughborough International,removing any doubt about her previous windy Long Jump marks by leaping to a superb 6.54(w 0.2),again a PB and a Club Open record.
ANOTHER RECORD FALLS
In winning Thursday's Central Surrey Schools Intermediate Boys 1500 Steeplechase at Kingsmeadow,Phillip Bearman(Hinchley Wood) claimed the Club Under 17 Record from Chris Hogg with a time of 4.50.7.
THE WEEK AHEAD
After R2 of the Southern Vets League at Home on Monday,many thoughts(well,at least for those who remembered to enter in time) will turn to the Bank Holiday Weekend and the County Champs,with the Surrey Festival at Kingsmeadow on both Saturday and Sunday - KO around 9.30 on both mornings.
