South London Athletics Network - host 2012 London Team Quadkids Under 11s Championships

The South London Athletics Network hosted the London Quadkids Team Championships at Sutton Arena the home of Sutton and District Athletic Club in bright winter sunshine and thankfully no rain! QuadKids Clubs promotes competition in athletics clubs throughout England with inter and intra club competitions and athletic network leagues and events. Targeting under 9, 11 and 13 age groups this is a perfect stepping stone encompassing all the key aspects of athletics; endurance, speed, agility and strength.

90 athletes competed from 6 clubs South London Harriers, Herne Hill Harriers, Bees Academy, Sutton & District Athletic Club, Croydon Harriers and Highgate Harriers. For many of the athletes this was the first time competing in an organised athletic competition. For others it was the first time they have had the chance to compete in a team based competition.

The competition on the day was fierce with the lead changing hands many times during the competition between Herne Hill Harriers, Croydon Harriers and the Bees Academy. The Bees Academy held a small advantage going into the final event the 600m but a strong performance from the Herne Hill team during the endurance event overhauled that advantage to give them the London Title on the day. The Bees Academy held on for a strong 2nd place with Highgate Harriers turning around a 100+ deficit on Croydon Harriers into the narrow 1 point victory and the bronze medal position and reward for making the long trek from North London.

Herne Hill and South London showed the growing strength of their junior sections by fielding a staggering 4 teams each on the day. This is testament to the hard work put in by Steve Bosley (HHH) and Anne Roden (SLH). Watch this space over the going years!

 Individual competition

The Quadkids competition also rewards outstanding individual performance. This is done by the athletes scoring points not only for their teams but by the athlete scoring points over the four disciplines that is then added together to give an overall individual score.  

The Boys competition was a tight affair and just like the team competition came down to the 600m. LJ Wright from the Bees Academy held a 6 point lead over Reben Rea from Herne Hill Harriers going into the final event. A fantastic 600m from Reben though allowed him to pip LJ to the individual title. They were closely followed by Jacob Devereux from Croydon Harriers who scored consistently throughout the competition.

The Girls competition was dominated by Ore Adamson (Herne Hill Harriers) who scored so heavily that she beat all but one of the boys on the day! She scored over 60 points in the 3 events, the standing long jump, 75 sprint and her best event the 600m run. Kayla Bowley Croydon Harriers finished 2nd on the day on the back of some impressive displays in the running events. In 3rd place was Ella Price (South London Harriers) who was the most consistent athlete in the competition by scoring over 40 points in all four of her events.

Christmas Quadkids Competition 19 December 2011.

 

Ice does not stop South London Quad Kids

 

Youngsters arriving for the final SLAN quad kids competition of the year at Tooting Bec track were greeted by a white infield and iced track and field event run ups but unperturbed a small gang of coaches and parents set about breaking up and clearing the ice and a timely thaw enabled the event to take place  

 

With a Xmas road relay taking place on Tooting Bec Common the track was very busy with a Xmas atmosphere and a quick revamp of the schedule ensuring that the field events went first enabled the event to catch up on time

 

Individual winners of events included Adel Latifi of Herne Hill Harriers who threw the vortex javelin with 31.30m and Danny and Connor Given of Herne Hill Harriers who threw 27.20m and 22.60m respectively, whilst in the long jump Lakesha Owusu Jnr of Sutton jumped 3.37m and Jamal Graffi Smith of Herne Hill Harriers jumped 4.33m   

 

The outstanding performance on the track was from Alexandra Brown of Herne Hill Harriers who ran 1.57 in the 600m

 

The Under 11 girls competition was particularly hard fought with only 38 points separating the first 4 athletes from Herne Hill, Sutton and South London Harriers. It was Alexandra Brown who eventually coming out on top with an excellent score of 187 points which achieved a UKA Bronze award which is outstanding considering the conditions. The Under 11 boys competition was an even closer affair which resulted in the first ever tie in a SLAN Quadkids event., Kian Gray and Chi Balamwezi could not be separated when the scores were totalled up both being credited with 182 points over the four events.
