Two Silvers and Bronzes for Sussex at Bedford

There were three medals but no golds for Sussex athletes at the England U15 and U17 championships at Bedford with the Sunday competitors enjoying almost continuous rain and wind.

Lizzie Korczak (Brighton & Hove), who has beaten the Sussex U17 javelin record several times this year, suffered what I believe was her first defeat of the season, in this age group, throwing 42.57m to take the silver medal in difficult conditions. Ironically she was beaten in the English championships by Scottish thrower Keira Wadddell, who is a year older, with 46.41m.

Highs and Lows for Sussex u13/15 teams as the YDL season ends

There was a mixed bag of results for Sussex teams at the last YDL Lower League fixtures of the season. Unfortunately Chichester Runners will be relegated and Brighton & Hove have a tense wait to see whether they will be promoted following their division win.

The final results are still being scrutinised so some information stated below is subject to change.

Lucky Seven for Sussex at Sheffield

Sussex youngsters scooped a brilliant seven medals, including one gold, at the National Indoor Age Groups championships at Sheffield over the weekend.

Pride of place went to Brighton & Hove’s Amber Anning who in her first year in the U20 age group romped away with the 400m title in a new indoor pb of 54.55s which suggests that she looks well in line for another stunning track season.
