Indoor Round-Up 18th January - Updated

The second weekend of the South of England Indoor Championships at Lee Valley brought seven medals for WGwEL athletes, and several personal best performances.

Cornwell wins again

Our English Schools Senior Boys 1500m champion, Alex Cornwell, is proving to be a winner in more ways than one. Alex recently entered a UKA competition to win a month's supply of Lucozade Sport for the club, and he has been announced to be the winner. The prize is of no little value, and will be put on sale at the clubhouse bar. Alex generously rejected the idea of a winner's reward.

A sports scientist representing Lucozade will be coming to our Ashton Playing Fields track on 9th February to advise athletes and coaches on how Lucozade Sport can be of benefit to training and performance. A table will be set up in the clubhouse enabling athletes & coaches to sample the products.

Indoor Round-Up, 11th January

WGwEL athletes were in indoor action at the weekend. There were some fine pole vault results from Loughborough and Cardiff, including a Scottish Indoor Record for Alasdair Strange. At Lea Valley in the South of England Championships there were several good performances, including 800m titles for Omar Mansour and Katherine Foy, and a 400m personal best for Paul Scanlan.

In Cardiff in the UWIC Pole Vault competition, Christian North took part in his first competition of the indoor season and won with a clearance of 5.05m, whilst Maria Seager was 4th with 3.95m in a high standard women's competition. However, there was even better news from Loughborough where Alasdair Strange improved his lifetime best by 2cm as he cleared 5.15m as he set a new Scottish Indoor Record, improving the old mark by 5cm
