COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS SUCCESS!

Well done to everyone who took part in the County Championships at the weekend.  There were many notable successes for Taunton AC athletes, particularly amongst the Under 20 men!

A 47.48 seconds PB and new club record propelled Tom Bennett (coach: James Kidd) to the top of the UK Under 20 rankings, and earned him an international vest at the Loughborough International this weekend.

A time of 5 mins 58.32 secs and a massive PB over the 2k steeplechase for Dillon Millard (coach: Dave Lee) also put him at the top of the Under20 rankings.

And a 62.43 metres javelin throw from Ben Jones (coach: Simon de Wilton) moved him to third in the UK Under 20 rankings. 

 

Meanwhile Alice Murray-Gourlay (coach: Charlotte Fisher) who was runner-up at last year’s British Champs and set a world best for the mile steeplechase earlier this month will make her international debut for Team England at the 3k steeplechase.

Many congratulations to all of you and your coaches.
