An amazing set of performances at the English Schools Championships at Manchester saw athletes reach unprecedented heights. A small number of Athletes are selected to represent Avon, based on performances earlier in the season. Selection for this prestigious event is impressive enough, finishing top 10 in the Country shows serious ability and control. Over the previous 17 years NSAC have had many top 8 finishes, but only 1 medal.
Multi-talented Rosa F finished 7th in the long jump, having added over 80cms to her personal best, with a 5.17m leap. Highly ranked Nationally in Combined events, pole vault and triple jump, National success will not be long in arriving.
A 12-centimetre personal best for Ruby D in the high jump deservedly won a bronze medal. Breaking GB International Ada’ora’s NSAC Club record with 1.62m an impressive return for some high quality training with Coach Joy.
Nyree P improved her pole vault pb to 3.50m to take the silver medal in the u17 event. Nyree will now compete for England in the Schools event in September
It was the shot put that saw NSAC’s top medallist, a gold for Shot putter George L. Amazing commitment from George & Coach Bruce in the weeks building up to the event, saw a 78cm winning margin with 14.92m, and the top 5 putts of the day! A National vest not far away…
