Successful return to action for Jacqui Hodgson

After spending most of the summer having to nurse a troublesome achilles tendon niggle, Jacqui Hodgson’s training programme started to bear fruit when she was able to retain her British Masters 400m title in the W45 category at Birmingham on July 26th. This performance hinted that her injury worries were behind her and that she could travel to Lyon for the World Masters Championships (August 10-16) with increased confidence.

Her optimism was justified when, in her first round heat she was over the moon to set a lifetime best (electric timing) of 61.33 which qualified her for a semi-final place. In view of this excellent performance she was gobsmacked when she set another all time PB with second place in her semi-final with 61.22 (electric timing) – therefore exceeding all her expectations by earning a place in the final; where she was an excellent fourth behind competitors from Australia, USA and Spain. her time in the final of 61.50 (electric timing) rounded off a superb championships where she ran faster that her previous lifetime PB three times.
Congratulations to Jacqui for a fine set of performances!

New Club 800m record for Samantha   3.1.2015

“Saturday 3rd January saw a good start to the year in terms of club records when Samantha Coleby set a new 800 time of 2:12.61 at the Comsport Open meeting at the EIS, Sheffield.
This replaced the previous record of 2:12.78 which was set by Seonaid Murray at Bedford in the British Universities Championship of 2006.
It is worth noting that both of the above performances were electronic timings – which UKA rules require for record purposes.
However, it is worth noting that Chloe Price has a hand timed performance of 2:12.4 (Jarrow, North East Track League, 2013). Chloe’s fastest electronic timed 800m performance is 2:14.92 (Bedford, English U/20 Championships, 2013).”
