Those clubs and coaches who saw success by way of the Power of 10 rankings this summer were recognised at the UK Athletics Awards Dinner for their work.

  

A new addition to the UK Athletics Awards process was the Norwich Union Power of 10 awards recognising the top clubs in specific event development areas.

 

Every UK affiliated club with athletes who had cleared either a UK 10 or 100 target line in the Power of 10 rankings were counted as part of the process to see which clubs were achieving in which areas.

Athletes achieving top 10 marks received more marks than those reaching the top 100. Performances by senior athletes were not counted – just those in the U15- junior age groups so that the clubs developing athletes could be easily recognised.

 

With the process designed to recognise trends, the following top clubs were celebrated for their strength in the key event areas, with one club receiving an award for high standards across all:

 

And the winners were...

 

Leeds City AC (Combined Events)

Enfield and Haringey AC (Speed)

Aldershot, Farnham and District (Endurance)

Sale Harriers (Jumps)

Blackheath and Bromley Harriers AC (Throws)

Windsor, Slough, Eton and Hounslow AC (Overall)

 

The Power of 10 Coach awards were nominated and awarded by to coaches across all event areas who were performing consistently in line with the Power of 10 philosophy of improving performance standards.

Andy Paul – UK Athletics Power of 10 Project Leader reflected on the awards evening:

 

“The underpinning philosophy of Power of 10 is to raise standards so it is only right that our awards reflect clubs and coaches achieving this. The calculation used for the club award highlighted some unexpected even surprise winners – but also enabled us to make sure those working well within an event discipline were recognised, and not just those with the biggest names.

 

“Whilst the coach award stemmed from nominations all the winning coaches had demonstrable success within the rankings and the awards were a great way of continuing to celebrate those in our sport working hard to raise standards.”
