Record-Breaking Feat: SpeedPro Athletes Rewrite The Club Record Books

Story By Bjorn Jansen

During the 2023 track and field season, the SpeedPro high-performance athletes broke ten Hercules Wimbledon Club records, two of which have stood for over 30 years. This was an outstanding achievement by the athletes and a great way to measure their progression.

The great thing about records is that they are there to be broken, and as we look towards the 2024 track and field season, the group has the indoor season to break a couple more.

U13 Girls Relays

One of the season's highlights for the group was the girl's fantastic effort, breaking both relay records and winning the 4x200m Surrey Champs. The 4x200m quartet broke their record from last year by 6 seconds, an outstanding result and a new overall club record.

4 x 100m (u13)
