2019 Track & Field Review
Here's a review of our 2019 season...
After the hard work of Andrew Willeard who spent a couple of days checking the club championship results we can confirm the top point scorers in each age group and club champions for 2019 are:
U11 – Toby Scott & Mia Squires
U13 – George Smith & Isabelle Rushmere
U15 – Aaron Roberts & Maggie Bean
U17 – Connor Southam & Sophie Rushmere
U20 – Tyler Bilyard & Molly Bean
SM – Dominic Oliver
Well done to everybody who took part. The full results will be in the tea hut and are also available on the power of 10 website via the results page on our website.
We believe that club records have been set / created in 30 different events this summer with many of those records being improved on more than one occasion.
In the East Anglian League top 8 finishes, earning a place in the league final, by 5 different teams and 8th place overall was our best performance since 2012. Top points scorers in age group that were awarded with trophies at our recent awards night were:
U13 – Allyna Mukuya & William Wassmer
U15 – Hollie Willeard & Aaron Roberts
U17 – Beth Greenwood & Daniel Harrison
Sen – Molly Bean & John Jennings
In the Norfolk Quadkids competition for younger athletes, Mia Squires came 1st, Amy Fielding 3rd & Maizie Boylan 4th in the U11 competition and Emily Roberts 2nd in the U13. Mia also set new club Quadkids record for her total points score and in the standing long jump.
At the Norfolk County Championships, GYDAC athletes won a fantastic 30 medals this year (11 gold, 9 silver & 10 bronze). This was followed by further gold and silver medals for Beth Greenwood and Maggie Bean at the recent Norfolk combined events championships.
In addition to the above there have been many very good performances at other meets throughout the year including at eastern championships and County / National Schools competitions that are too numerous to mention.
Last but not least is Sophie Mckinna; British shot put Champion and Team GB IAAF World Athletics Championship Finalist!! Sophie finished in 11th place in the final in Doha and on her way there threw a massive PB and club record of 18.61m; the fifth longest throw of any British female athlete ever!!
WHAT A FANTASTIC YEAR.
