Rodger fastest in 400m hurdles heats.

Seb Rodger from Eastbourne will go in to the final of the 400m hurdles at the UK championships a Trials at Birmingham as the fastest qualifier.

Both his main rivals for the title also won their heats in fast times with Jack Green (Kent) clocking 50.68s and Dai Green (Swansea) 51.14s compared to Rodger’s 50.56s. All three will be hoping to crack the 50sec barrier in what could be a very close battle for the title and a place in the UK team for the European Championships in August.

Records Tumble despite the rain on Day one at K2

On a day when the weather switched from dry and pleasant to breezy, wet and cold a quartet of records fell at the Sussex County Track and Field Championships. 

The morning at K2, Crawley started out cloudy but still and just like last year it was the throws rather than the track where the first Championship Best Performances (CBP’s) were recorded.

Medals Galore at the Palace

Sussex athletes scooped a handful of medals in the Southern Counties Track championships at the Crystal Palace over the weekend including three gold medals and a Sussex record in the U20 events.

The record came in the javelin throw where Lewes’s Scot Staples, the talented County champion pulled out a brilliant effort of 59.68m which added just ten centimetres to Worthing’s Simon Kearney’s fifteen year old County record.

The other two titles went to U17 athletes who were competing up an age group.
