European U/20 Silver for Yemi Mary John

Just two and a half months after her first ever race over 400m, Yemi Mary John placed 2nd in the European Junior Championships in Tallinn, Estonia. Mary comfortably won her heat in 53.85 secs, then ran a personal best of 53.17 secs to win her semi-final and recorded another p.b. to win her silver medal in the final with 53.06 secs. The race was won by the Polish athlete Kornelia Lesiewicz, who had won the other semi-final, with 52.46 secs. Mary finished ahead of two Russian athletes competing as Authorised Neutral athletes, each of whom boasted superior personal bests entering the competition. Yemi Mary will have another season in the U/20 age group next year.

Annual General Meeting – Friday 30th July

I hereby give notice that the 113th Annual General Meeting of Woodford Green Athletic Club with Essex Ladies will be held on Friday, 30th July 2021, at the Clubhouse, Ashton Playing Fields, Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, commencing at 7.45 p.m. Your attendance is requested.

Immediately before the AGM, we will hold an Extraordinary General Meeting to vary clause 8 of the club constitution.  This relates to the fact that our President normally steps down after two years’ service but given the almost complete shutdown of events in 2020-21, we are asking our President to continue for a 3rd year.

The agendas for the meetings are included within The Club Annual Report 2020-21 which has been sent to all on the club database. If you haven’t received it, please check your junk email first and if you still haven’t received it, you can request one from me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I very much hope that as many of you as possible will be able to attend.

Hon. General Secretary.
