Congratulations to Jasmine Wilkins, who set a Senior Women's and Under 20 Women's club 100m record of 11.60 seconds whilst running at the UCONN Northeast Challenge meeting in the United States on 13th April.  Jasmine's time currently puts her in the UK Top 10 for the event.  Well done Jasmine!

There was a great run from Jasmine Wilkins last weekend.  During a Birmingham University trip to the United States, Jasmine clocked an 11.78 second 100m at the Penn Invitational event on 6th April at Franklin Field, Pennsylvania.  This is one of the fastest times run by a British woman so far this season.  Well done Jasmine!

Congratulations to Edith Caux and Jemma Eastwood, who have both broken club indoor records recently.  Jemma set a new W45 record of 3.32 metres for the Pole Vault in the European Masters Championships in Tourn, Poland on 20th March.  At the same event, Edith bettered both her W65 200m record and her W65 400m record.   Edith's new marks are 74.12 seconds and 32.11 seconds respectively.

Congratulations to Lily Farr, who finished an excellent 21st in the Inter Girls race at the English Schools Cross Country Championships last weekend.  

Lily was boxed in the stampede of 343 runners at the start and found it difficult to negotiate the phalanx of runners spread across the course in front of her. As space eventually began to open up, she worked her way through the field from 75th place to finish an outstanding 21st - only 10 seconds behind 10th place and an international vest.

Theo Beale  also enjoyed a good run to finish 88th in a field of 329 runners.  Congratulations to all the Bedford and County athletes who took part.

Congratulations to Stephen Simmons, who has broken two Senior Men's club indoor records this winter.  Stephen's new marks are 5069 points for the Heptathlon, set at Sheffield on 6th January, and 8.34 seconds for the 60m Hurdles, set at Lee Valley on 2nd December.

Congratulations to Edith Caux, who has set two new W65 club records over the last few days.  Edith's new records are for 200m (32.13 seconds) and 400m (75.78 seconds).  These were set in Lyon, France on 1st and 2nd March respectively.

Congratulations (again!) to Jasmine Wilkins and Etienne Maughan, who both improved their own Senior Women's club records whilst competing in the British Universities Championships on 23rd February.

  • Jasmine's time of 7.60 seconds for the 60m beats the old record by two-hundredth of a second.
  • Etienne's time of 8.36 seconds for the 60m hurdles beats the old record by four-hundredths of a second.

Jasmine's 7.62 is also an Under 20 Women's record for the club.

Etienne and Jasmine both reached the final of their events, with Etienne finishing fourth and Jasmine sixth.

Well done to both!
