The first set of QuadKids (U9 & U11) rankings have been uploaded to the rankings page, incorporating the Radley Open Meeting and the first Oxon league results. We aim to update these rankings throughout the season.
Three Radley athletes travelled to Hungary for the World Master Indoor Championships last week.
In the Men's 55 category Alastair Duncan competed in the 60m, in the heats he ran 8.26s which put him in the semi final where he ran 8.37s.
After a days break he ran in the 200m coming 2nd in his heat with a time of 26.54s, just falling short of qualifying for the semis. Later he ran the 400m coming 2nd in his heat with a time of 60.67s qualifying for the semi final where he ran faster – 59.30s.
Training partner Janice Ellacott had a busy week in the Women's 50 age group.

5 go to Indoors!
PBs and good competition abounded for the 5 Radley athletes pictured, Petrina and Luisa Chantler Edmond, Alice Hopkins, Blake Strickland Bennett and Stefan Hamblin.
Petrina started the day off for us with a 5th place in the u15 girls shot and a new PB of 8-67mts. Meanwhile sister Luisa was lying 3rd in the u17 shot with her new PB of 10-73mts until she was beaten by the last throw of the competition into 4th place.
Alice Hopkins represented Radley in the u17 women's pentathlon with an almost faultless set of performances in the SEAA Pentathlon champs.
She approached her PB in the 60m hurdles with a 9.50 sec clocking then equalled her high jump PB of 1.42 mts with only a five stride approach quickly followed by a new shot PB of 9.23m.
As this was the first real try out of 2014 you might have expected a drop of in standards as we entered the 4th event, the Long Jump but Alice produced a series of jumps within cms of her PB finishing with a 4.82m jump.
Come and enjoy an evening of celebration to recognise the achievements of the club’s members in 2013. Have fun and a dance. Open to all our athletes, their friends and families, as well as our valuable volunteers.
