Oxon Junior League results M1 - 08 August 2021

Thank you to all athletes and parents who attended the first Oxon Junior League this season in Banbury on Sunday 08 August. It was a great day, despite the little bit of rain in the morning. We had some great quality performances from our Radley athletes.

Special mention to Divine (13B) who achieved a Grade 1 performance in the 100m and to Chloe (U13G) who also got a Grade 1 performance in her High Jump with 1.44m. There were also numerous other graded achievements - please see attached results. Well done to our U15 boys and U15 girls who both came 2nd overall on the day.

Congratulations To All Our English Schools Athletes

Radley has a great group of really talented athletes heading for the ESAA championships in Manchester on 9-11 July.

Of the seventeen Oxon athletes, six are from Radley:

Adam Chesterman - U20 discus 

Rowan Miell-Ingram - U20 3000m

Esther Davies - U20 pole vault 

Amber Jeacock-West - U20 discus 

Erin Waters - U20 javelin

Thom Denning - U17 800m

Well done on your selections and its great to see that Radley athletes account for one-third of the entire team.

Back To Competition

There were plenty of highlights at the Radley Back To Competition event on Saturday, an opportunity for the club to come together after the long lay-off when even the weather was on its best behaviour. 

Among the talent and effort on display, the remarkable achievement of eleven year old Divine is a wonderful example of progress at the club. In running 12.4 seconds in his first ever 100m, * from a standing start *, Divine has been catapulted to the top of the UK ranking list.

Rowan Again

Further congratulations to Rowan Miell-Ingram who has added the ESAA 1500m qualifying standard to his impressive season.

Rowan ran 3:56.00 at the BMC PB Classic in Milton Keynes on Saturday; testament to his hard-work, determination and the support from his coaches. 

Well done from everyone at Radley. 

 

Well Done To Rowan!

Congratulations to Rowan Miell-Ingram who has achieved the English Schools' Qualifying Standard in the 3000m.

Rowan, who has just moved into the U20 age group, raced in Milton Keynes on 22 May 2021 (pictured here) and ran a superb time of 8.28.73 to surpass the standard set by ESAA.  This was a pb for Rowan to had run a similar time on the road earlier in the year, but consolidated and improved that performance on the track. 8:28 is better than the listed ESAA National Standard set at 8.33. Fantastic running Rowan!

 

Qualifying Distance for ESAA for Erin

Huge congratulations to Erin Waters who is our first English Schools qualifier this year! 

Erin threw a new PB of 38.62 metres in the javelin at Nuneaton at the weekend to exceed the qualifying standard of 37 metres easily.  Her previous pb was 32.92 metres so her winter training has really paid off.

Her target remains to throw the ESAA National Standard (40 metres) and she hopes to qualify for the England National Championship later this year.

Well done Erin!
