Erin and Amy Crook achieved excellent placings competing for the Charles Read Academy at the 7th annual David Ross Educational Trust Summer Cup, held at the South Kesteven Sports Stadium on the 3rd July. Erin achieved gold in the 200m hurdles, while older sister Amy won gold in the 800m – congratulations to them both!
Congratulations also to Praise Olalere who won bronze in the senior boys 100m at the English Schools Track & Field Champs, 13th July at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham in a time of 10.78s, having run 10.75s in the heats. A terrific result – well done! We believe this puts Praise in the top 20 under 20s in the country, which is very impressive indeed!
Finally, well done to former GAC athlete Amy Hunt on a World under 18 200m record with a time of 22.42, also placing her 3rd on the UK all-time senior rankings. Just as a comparison, the male under 18 200m champion is a certain Usain Bolt…
