01/07/2015  Eastern Veterans League, Peterborough  details

Competing at Peterborough in the Eastern Veterans League, the Huntingdonshire AC men and women, ranging in age from 38 to 60, enjoyed its best-ever competitive day since the club entered the league seven years ago. Halfway through the season, the Hunts AC men found themselves lying in third place in the division with only the top two teams going through to the Finals in September. Spurred on by this deficit, team manager Wayne DuBose put the call out for the best team possible to be available on the day. Everybody responded magnificently with some going above and beyond the call of duty by doing extra events for those vital team points. Hunts AC veteran men got the ball rolling by sweeping the 400 metre hurdles competitions with Peter Downhill winning the M40 race and Richard Phelan taking the M50 event. Peter and Richard later teamed up with Matt Linnell and Andy Stowe to crush the opposition by 6 seconds in the 4x200m relay in 1:48.2, establishing a new club veteran's record. Similar success came in the mile where Richard Holland took first in the M50 race by 13 seconds with 5:38.0 while Bruce Grimley came up trumps in the M60 race by 12 seconds with 5:45.3. Earlier, taking part in his first-ever walking competition, Bruce Grimley covered the 1000m distance in 6:42.4 for a new club record. Out in the field, Richard Phelan picked up a brace of M50 wins clearing 5.01m in the long jump and 2.80m in the pole vault. Backing up Richard in the pole vault, Wayne DuBose, making a tactical move for points, came down a couple of age groups and was rewarded with the M35 victory. Wayne's win in the M60 shot putt came in unusual circumstances. Missing the first round due to competing in the 300m hurdles, Wayne had no time to take off his spikes in the second round as he heaved the shot out to 9.80m. With no time to hang around to hear the distance, he ran over to the 1000m walk race start seconds before the starting pistol sounded. After completing the race and gaining vital points for the club, he jogged back to the shot putt area and arrived just in time to take his final putt. Still having to wear his running spikes in the circle, Wayne was motivated after hearing that he was just 27 cms down on the leader. With whatever strength was left, he put in his all, reaching 10.44m, good enough for the win and 7th position in the national M60 rankings. By the end of the meet, Wayne had scored over a quarter of the team's points. Topping off success in the field, Bob Ellingham won the M50 hammer throw with 42.68m. When the final scores were totted up, not only did Hunts AC beat their target club of Wellingborough & District AC who were in second place in the league, but they also beat league leaders Peterborough AC by a big margin. With the final match at Corby on 29 July, the Hunts AC veteran men are just 4 match points behind Peterborough for the division title. That's just the difference between finishing 1st and 5th in one event. It's going to be a great finale in four weeks' time.

Despite the Hunts AC women not having sufficient numbers to be competitive as a team this year in the league, the standard of the individuals was outstanding. Leading the way, Andrea Linnell, in her first season of competition since her schooldays, ran 14.6 secs to win the W35 100m, breaking Hannah Stirley's club veterans record of 14.8 secs set in 2012. She later anchored the W35 team to 2nd place in the 4x200m relay, almost catching the winner. Andrea, along with Jo Abel, Penny Butcher, Paula Waller, recorded 2:12.6 for a new club record. Also in club record-setting mode, Karen Cameron placed first in the women's 1000m walk, recording 6:17.1. Not content with that achievement, Karen then went on to win the W50 mile in 6:52.2. In the field, Penny Butcher won the W50 long jump with 3.92m which wasn't just her best-ever jump as a veteran but also puts her 4th in the W55 national rankings. Sandra Pedley rounded out the evening of excellence with a 1.70m clearance to win the W35 pole vault, a superb accomplishment for someone who enters the W50 age group next week.

Congratulations Hunts AC Veteran Athletes. A great evening of achievement!

01/07/2015  Watford Open  details

The PB juggernaut Siobhan Skinner continued her stupendous improvement, on this occasion over the 1500m. Not satisfied with removing 15 seconds from her best just 10 days earlier, Siobhan reduced her best by a further 14 seconds when running 4:56.83 for 4th place in her race. She is now almost half a minute faster than her best from less than two weeks ago. Also running the 1500m in a separate race, Amy Chalmers ran a season's best 5:16.08 finishing 12th. In the 100m, Owen King ran 11.20 (w/s +0.2) to finish 4th. Taking all of Owen's 100m races into account which have been electronically timed with a wind speed reading, this is perhaps his best effort with minimal wind assistance. The comparative mark this year is his 11.34 (w/s +0.6).

  • 27/06/2015  Eastern County Championships, Cambridge  details

    After winning four Eastern Counties Championship medals in 2014, Huntingdonshire AC more than quadrupled its haul this year winning 17 in total, including six gold medals (up from one last year). In the Under 15 Girls 100m final, Jasmine Hope not only won the gold medal by the narrowest of margins, just 0.01 secs, but, with her 12.81 clocking, she finally claimed the club record for herself having previously shared it with Helen Fuller who ran 12.9 in 1986. Jasmine can now call herself the fastest Under 15 Girl in Hunts AC's 48-year history. Although setting no records, Declan Rice had the distinction in taking home two gold medals in the Under 17 Men category - in the hammer throw with 35.49m and in the shot putt with 9.29m. Declan also won silver in the discus with 26.42m. Siobhan Skinner continued to be a revelation this season as she improved her 800m personal best for the third time in eight days to claim the Senior Women's 800m title. Three months ago, Siobhan's best was 2:27.1. It now stands at 2:18.28. In the Under 17 Men's 3000m, Joey Croft knocked 18 seconds off his best to take the gold medal with 9:24.87. The sole club Senior Men's gold medal effort came from Richard Phelan who tied for first place in the pole vault with a 3.00-metre clearance.
