England Athletics age group championships held in Sheffield over Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February saw some fine performances by TVH young athletes. The highlight of the championships was from TVH’s British junior international triple jumper, Jude Bright-Davies. In a close competition, Jude produced a very good jump in his 4th round to take the lead and become the U20 men’s triple jump champion by 13cm.
In the 60m sprints, Daniel John and Keano Paris-Samuel both had good runs close to their personal best times to make the semi-finals. Keano went on to run a new indoor best of 22.66 in the 200m
TVH’s new Higher Competition Athletes that will be competing in our national senior premier division league teams this summer were also in brilliant form and were all rewarded with medals. 16 year old British No.1 Molly Caudery narrowly missed out on the European Junior qualifying height as she won the U20 pole vault competition in only her first year at this age group with a very good clearance at 4.05m. Jaymee Domoney had his best ever run as he claimed the silver medal in the 1500m with a new life time best of 3:53.92. There was also an excellent silver medal for British junior international Joel Khan who was close to his personal best with 2.10m in the high jump. The last day of competition saw Emmanuel Thomas go clear at 4.40m in the pole vault to claim a very good bronze medal. We are all looking forward to see them competing over the summer.
