Amber Anning and George Turner both brought home medals from the South of England U15/U17 Championships at Crystal Palace. Amber, in her first triple jump competition leapt to a Championship Best Performance of 11.25m in the U15 Girls' event, despite not once hitting the board! This parachutes her to the number one spot in the UK rankings. Meanwhile in the U17 Pole vault George jumped below his season's best of 4.07m, but his 3.80m was enough to take the bronze on countback. Well done to both athletes.

Knowing that they almost certainly needed a victory to secure the Southern Athletics League title, Brighton and Hove took a big team for their match against hosts Stevenage, Norwich and Croydon.

On a day of surprisingly warm sunshine-the forecast had been average at best-punctuated by two biblical downpours Brighton secured victory comfortably in a match that was a tight three way tussle at the half way point.

Brighton used their strength in depth to great effect fielding two athletes in every event bar one and their team spirit was evident in the vociferous support given from the sidelines from the starter’s first pistol to the last discus thrown.

Anna Short was selected to run as part of the England U20 4x100m relay squad on July 15th at Cardiff and took the anchor leg to secure 5th place, this resulted in her claiming her first England vest. Anna has had a spectacular season - her first as an U20. She was a very close second in the Southern Championships 100m at Crystal Palace, literally a vest width separated her from the gold and she was given the same time as the winner, 11.94 secs - wind assisted. This resulted in an invitation to the British Championships at Birmingham competing against the best of senior 100m sprinters in the UK - a very steep learning curve. 

July's English Schools was a disappointment for Anna after she failed to qualify for the final of the 100m, but she was part of the Senior girls' relay team alongside Holly Turner, Katie Garland and Bethany Close, who set a Sussex Senior/U20 and club record of 47.98 secs in their heat.    

Anna is a member of the 'Jumps Group' and she is the first to give credit to her training partners - Tom French, James Hollins and Ben Radcliffe - for pacing her during those cold winter nights on the track. No Sprinter can reach good times without the help of their group.

Stephen Strikes Silver, Katie leaps to Bronze plus a Sussex Senior Womens' Relay Record 


Stephen Ferroni added a silver medal to his ever-expanding trophy cabinet with a fantastic run in the Inter Boys 3000m. He battled down the home straight on the heels of arch rival Ben Dijkstra to cross the line in a time of 8:42.48. It is all the more remarkable that this was only Stephen's second track race of the year. In his first in May, he qualified for the schools' with his PB time of 8:37.3. Stephen's success has earned him a second international vest in the Home Counties International at Cardiff this weekend. 

Multi Eventer, Katie Garland pulled out all the stops to jump a personal best of 5.66m for third place in the Senior Girls' Long Jump. Unfortunately Katie pulled a hamstring during the competition and had to withdraw but had done enough to secure her medal. Katie's injury meant the 4x100 Senior Girls Relay team was depleted for the final where they came 7th. However in their earlier heat, the original line up of Holly Turner, Katie, Anna Short and Bethany Close had set a Sussex Senior/ U20 and B&H club record of 47.98 secs.
