News update of what’s happening in Yate Athletic Club
Yvette Westwood continued her early season form by winning bronze, this time in the 200m in a new PB of 25.29. Her coach, Rob Ellchuck was particularly pleased that she did a Pb in the heat and then in the final, with her heat, semi and final all within 4 hrs (the semi only 55mins before the final).
Yate were well represented on the day, with Adam Brooks (PB HJ), Ellie Leather, Rob Dakin (PB 400m), Jamie Brock, Matt Muggeridge, Steve Beardwell, Kane Lee and Mark Cottam (PB 400m) all performing well.
Special mention must go to Adam in the high jump gaining a silver with a great jump of 1.88 (Still only 15) and Kane Lee who missed out on a medal in the 800m by only 0.62sec!
The entry forms for our Sprints and Hurdles open on 12/04/15 have now been added to the site in both PDF and doc form.
Under the ‘Home’ section go to ‘Fixtures’ and use which format you prefer.
Some excellent performances at the Birmingham indoors games on the 7/8th February saw another host of PBs and SBs.
Yvette Westwood’s 7.91sec in the 60m was another PB after her previous one a couple of weeks ago and 25.72sec in the 200m gave her, a SB soon after. Jacob Spence got a PB in the 60m with his 7.43sec and followed that up with 8.32sec in the 60mh.
Jamie Brock had a SB with 7.26sec in the 60m with Robert Dakin getting another PB in the 200m with 25.15.
Adam Brook Jumped well, starting the season with a solid 1.80m SB in his second competition this year.
Congratulations to you all, its is so good seeing our athletes performing well.

We have added a new section under the home drop down. ‘Video’ is a library/link to some athletics, currently old Diamond league, that you may want to have a look at, weather it be sprints, high jump etc, there should be something there for you to watch. If there is a favourite you want linked let me know and it can be added on.
South West Schools XC – Grittleton House – Saturday 7th February
The committee have just been informed that there could be a shortage of parking spaces at Grittleton House so they have asked us to suggest that athletes try to car share if possible.
Well done to Yvette Westwood and Robert Dakin for their PBs at the Midland indoor open on 10/01/15.
Yvette was second in the 60m with a PB of 7.79, whilst Robert in his first year at U17 got his PB down to 7.78 in the 60m which is a great start to his season.
Congratulations to Lesley Nunn who has a birthday today, no doubt she will be at the track tonight as usual rather than accepting Stuarts’ ‘offer’ of a meal out!?
The session on Saturday morning 17/01/15 is cancelled as Circadian Trust have shut the track due to snow on the track.
