Anglian Schools Athletics Championships
23 June 2011
Six Norwich School athletes represented Norfolk at the Anglian Schools Athletics Championships at UEA on Saturday. As well as being an important championship in its own right, this event provided athletes with a final chance to impress the selectors and earn a place in the Norfolk team at the English Schools Championships. While Norfolk could select up to 160 athletes to compete in the various disciplines and age groups at this level, they can only take a maximum of 25 to the Nationals, so competition for places is fierce. The wet and windy conditions on Saturday proved extremely challenging for all competitors and our athletes experienced mixed fortunes.
TJ Ighomeriho started well in the 100m, but was ultimately disappointed with 5th place in a time of 11.8s.
Our 2 discus throwers, India Gill and Jonathan Tomes both came 6th, with Jonathan adding 1m to his personal best.
High jumper James Steele and Triple jumper Oliver Cooley both came 2nd in their events, but experienced differing emotions. James had cleared 1m70 twice in the past week, and was hoping to go higher still, but could only manage 1m60 on this occasion.
After a foul in the first round of the triple jump, Oliver Cooley set a new personal best of 11.73 in the second round, and then leapt to 11.92 in the final round to put himself firmly in contention for a place at the nationals.
Once again, Martainn Ramsay was Norwich School’s most successful athlete on the day, winning the senior 800m in a time of 2:01. Typically, Martainn was underwhelmed by this performance as he had been hoping to go under 2 minutes. But given the conditions, and the fact he was on his own for the last 300m, it was still extremely impressive.
Martainn, Oliver and James must now wait to see if they are selected for the Norfolk team at the English Schools Champs. They should hear within the next week, and we wish them all the best
