BIG FISH BIG POND
You can be a big fish in a small pond for your athletic career, but the only people who will remember are you and your Mum/Dad! If your going to progress and go up the rankings you have to test yourself against the best the UK has to offer. A strong contingent of Radley athletes set off for Sheffield to perform in the individual indoor event championships. At stake would be gaining great experience, personal bests, final placings, potential medals and an opportunity to be that big fish.
We recently met with Abingdon School for an update on the Tilsley Park developments and can report:
- The development work is currently on schedule
- Several small issues affecting the Club have been resolved as they have arisen
- Our throws groups have been made separate arrangement with Abingdon School
- All necessary conditions/approvals have now been received/resolved in respect of the new throws area
- The bar area which is currently not in use is to be completed shortly
- The School have put a noticeboard in reception which will keep users updated on progress and developments so keep an eye on that.
Oxfordshire AA are planning to run Level 2 courses on:

In addition, there are L2 modules running at TVAC, Eton on 28 February, in Track, Field and Timekeeping.

As a first year u20 women Alice Hopkins and Luisa Chantler Edmond went to this years championships on a bit of a learning curve. Both had older more experienced opposition but undaunted they set about trying to recreate last years medal haul of 3 medals (as u17 athletes). Luisa had set her eyes firstly on both a pb and a Radley club record. After a week of training in freezing conditions when to be honest shot putting was a nightmare she opened with an equal to her pb of 11.56mts.
The Club has been allocated a place for the London Marathon taking place in April. Members who are interested in this opportunity should contact the Club secretary (with their name and email) by 20th January.
