Medals and records for the K&P relay teams


Altogether eleven K&P teams across all age groups contested the Surrey track relay championships on 9/10 September in Sutton. First up were the U13 girls ((Jemima Harcourt, Gabriella Ceccherini, Hannah Choudhury, Daniella Townsend), who finished 5th in the 4x100m. The U15 girls with Katie Harrison, Kira Holt, Anna Gawander and Lucy Atkins went one better, coming 4th in a very competitive 4x100m final. Anna and Lucy, now well warmed up, teamed with Emilia Chittenden and Evie Wilkinson to win the first K&P medal of the weekend – bronze in the 4x300m. All other relays were on Sunday. Demonstrating our strength in this age group, we sent two teams into the U15 boys’ 4x100m. Max Dickson, Tom Williams, Kai Mason and Jack Dickson finished in a strong 4th place, but Tarun Ramphul, Liam MacDonald, Thomas White and Patrick Gubbay were even quicker, winning silver with a new club record. The U17 women 4x100m squad (Hannah Lester, Gabrielle-Chiara Icmat, Louise Stoney, Amelia Bell) came close to follow up with another medal, but were beaten by just 8/00 into 4th. Next came the longer relays, where we had high hopes.

British Athletics League Division 2, Match 4

Lee Valley, 20th August 2017

The Kingston and Polytechnic BAL Bandwagon rolled onto Lee Valley where they faced a realistic opportunity to achieve a first ever promotion to Division 1 (since the merger in 1985), and a place in the top sixteen men’s athletic teams in Great Britain.

Team Manager Chris Hall skilfully selected a squad that covered all bases and would subsequently be tested in their ability to get a top four placing, but he was also confident that this was a team that was not just about individuals, and was robust in its selection.


The team responded with an excellent all-round performance to win the event by a fine margin of around 27 match points (final results yet to be published), securing the Division 2 title by a margin of 6 league points and a full 8 league points clear of third position.
