Superlative Masters - Records Smashed !

I was Inspired by the 30 New Junior Club Records….  Though at the other end of Club Record spectrum…. I am absolutely  blown away – New Club Masters Records are showing 44 records have been broken  … Absolutely Fantastic


Given the strength and advancement of the Winchester and District Masters teams… with a wonderful performance of the ladies in the Southern Finals…. a great training ethos…. a  great team spirit

…  I shouldn’t really be surprised that Athletes are pushing boundaries and records are tumbling….


When coaching Juniors, we always talk about development athletes for the longer term… the Group of Athletes at Winchester provide a brilliant Role Model…  Jonathan Kane smashing club records through the V70 category, Moria West demolishing V65 club records for the Women…  


The Juniors had to deliver brilliant performances achieve Club Records.  For the Masters Records they are no less easier…!

Martin Manion had to run even faster than his more (erm) junior age category and achieve top 10 UK Rankings  to gain V50 Club Records…

Sue Van Vuuren had to achieve multiple top 10 national rankings and win the British Masters Championships to achieve a Club Masters Record… a sensational run, against a head wind of 1.4m per second and faster than her more youthful age categories. Brilliant.

Joy Radford, not only had to achieve top 15 national rankings, but also had to improve upon performances set by British Masters Champions to be able to achieve a Club Masters Record.


Absolutely inspiring…Congratulations to the new Club Record Holders... 

For the Ladies, 20 New Records: Congratulations to:  Kathryn Miles, Sue Van Vuuren, Moria West, Joy Radford, Jo Jefferies, Lucy Elliott, Sally Easton, Jo Curtis, Gill Goodwin, Alison Fenwick, Heather Mballa and Sue Hume….
