SAL Match 5 – Bromley, 2 August 2014

Radley athletes showed great team spirit and effort in their final division 1 match of 2014 held at Bromley.

The best result of the day came in the ladies Hammer with Aislinn Baird claiming a new PB and senior CR with a massive 45.21 m to win the B string. She was supported by her team mate U20 Emma O’Hara who has not long returned for the world juniors winning the A string with 54.28 m. This just missed Emma the female athlete of the match award on the day.

SAL - Bromley

In the SAL Radley had the long trip to Bromely, Kent and could only manage a 2nd place behind a very strong home side. With only 12 men and 15 women to fill events it was always going to be a tough ask but the team rallied around to fill the majority of events but this was not enough to win the match.

South of England Combined Events – Bedford 19/20 July

Adela Hussain set out for Bedford knowing she had to pull together her best performances across the 7 heptathlon events if she was to retain her U20 SEAA title from 2013.

She couldn’t have started better with two pbs. Firstly in the 100m hdls 15.50 with a legal wind and an equal pb in the high jump at 1.55mts. The ten other athletes started to fall behind as she produced her second best ever competition shot putt (9.67mts). The 200 mts was the last event on day one but a sudden wind on the bend paid to end thoughts of a pb. She led to within 5mts of the finish when just pipped by 0.1sec by her nearest rival.
