UKA Weekend Report June 27 2010

All eyes this weekend (athletically at least) were on the great performances from UK athletes at the Aviva European Trials and UK Championships on June 25-27, which also meant there was little action overseas.

Highlights from elsewhere in the calendar included:

European Cup Super League, Tallinn, June 26/27

The Aviva Great Britain and Northern Ireland team were 6th in the European Cup, Combined Events Super League in Talinn. Grace Clements moved up to third in the POT Heptathlon rankings finishing 9th with a score of  5755.

BMC Eltham , June 23

In the BMC Meeting at Eltham, Katie Snowden set a huge PB of 2:05.7 to go top of the Power of Ten U17 800m rankings. The Herne Hill Harrier had in previous weeks won the South of England U17 title and surprisingly the Aviva England U20 World Trials Championships over 400m. In the latter she had improved her 400m best by over a second from  55.70 to 54.59, and then taking that confidence into her next 800m at Eltham, she passed 400m in 62 seconds and held on well to take three and a half seconds off her previous best.
