Top awards go to Tish Jones and William Sharman
Saturday 30 November. At the Annual Belgrave
Dinner the awards for the best individual performances for 2013 season
were presented to Tish Jones and William Sharman.
For The Centenary Cup, awarded annually since 1987 when
the club reached its 100th year, five athletes were in the running:
Samantha Amend ran 2:43:48 in the London Marathon and
headed our winning team.
Tish Jones set a time of 16:26.88 when running in the UK Championship
5000 metres her first ever attempt at that distance. In fact Tish had
another performance which was marginally better than that 5k when she
ran 9:31.8 for 3000 metres in a mixed Rosenheim League race.
Lauren Whelan took 2nd place in her first ever international race walk
over 10k in the Netherlands (53:22). She was also 2nd in the English 10
Jodie Favell scored 4,822 points for the Heptathlon when she placed
4th in the UK Championships and also earned a second international vest
for that event.
Graina Narviliene was 3rd in the UK 20k Race Walk Championship and
was the English Champion in that event.
Bearing in mind the outstanding level of competition in
the UK 5,000m Championship, the exceptional time run, and the fact that
it was her first attempt at the distance the winner was judged to be
The Tommy Green Cup for men has been awarded since 1947
and if anything, the competition was closer here than for The Centenary
Alex Wrights Lugano 20k Race Walk performance where he
beat the IAAF World Championship standard by around a minute was
outstanding. He followed up with further great races in the Dublin IAAF
Challenge 20k and the World Championships in Moscow. On the track he set
UK records at 5,000m outdoors and 3,000m indoors. What a contender for
the Tommy Green Cup.
Marty Dent, racing for Australia, competed with distinction in the
World Championship marathon, placing 23rd.
Dwain Chambers won the UK Championship over 100m yet again and his
10.04 timing earned him a massive 1,211 points on the international
scoring tables and yet another appearance in the global championship at
The Diamond League Grand Prix at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on
the Anniversary of the twenty-twelve London Olympics saw William Sharman
race to 13.26 over the 110 metres hurdles losing at the very last
instant to the outstanding American David Oliver who went on to win the
World Title. William put such pressure on the field that Olympic
Champion Aries Merritt crumbled and crashed while being headed by Will.
In a stellar season, William made it all the way to the IAAF World
Championship final for a third consecutive occasion.
William's score for his 13.26 timing (a club record) was
1,212 - and he was adjudged the winner of the Tommy Green Cup.
