Medals and Personal Bests: SpeedPro athletes perform at Surrey Championships

Story By Bjorn Jansen

Wow, what a weekend for the SpeedPro group at the 2024 Surrey County Track and Field Championships. The athletes' preparation over the last two six-week training blocks was done, and the group of 16 athletes, under the guidance of our dedicated coaching team, produced six medalists, 13 finalists, and 17 personal bests. These results testify to our athletes' hard work and dedication; we couldn't be prouder. 

SpeedPro Medalists.

Olly Mealor secured a silver medal with a personal best effort of 5.72m in the U15 Long Jump final. The competition was intense, with the lead changing multiple times.

Isabella Harrison ran from the front in the U15 800m final, with some outstanding 200m splits, and held on to a well-deserved silver medal in a time of 2:14.16. We look forward to seeing what times Isabella can produce in this event over the summer.

Thomas Whorton, the silver medalist at the National Indoor 800m, competed in only his second race of the season due to injuries. He produced a performance that earned him a silver with a time of 2:07.06 in the U15 800m final.

Neva Jansen (Lead Coach: Chris Privett) had a busy Sunday with the hammer and discus. In her first year as an under-17, she achieved a personal best of 29.00m, securing a bronze medal. The discus event featured the top throwers in the UK and was a competition worth watching. Neva had a good series of throws, with her second biggest throw of the season measuring 34.14m, earning her another bronze.

Freya McAndie stepped down from the 800m to the 300m after some impressive training sessions and a 44.09 300m personal best at the Lily B the week earlier, her first 300m she has competed in. The U15 300m final was only an hour after the heat, where Freya ran a fantastic race to secure a bronze medal, a new personal best of 42.81. It is worth mentioning that Freya was only 12 at the championships and is a first-year U15.

Keiyan Waikwa also had a busy weekend, finishing 6th in the U15 300m final (43.04 PB) and reaching the 200m semi-final (27.59 PB)

That One Performance

Progression in athletics plays a big part in building confidence and shows that consistent training and hard work can pay dividends. Mahira Narvekar produced a 3.5-second personal best in the U15 300m heat, running 46.27; Well done Mahira.
