Hexham, September 1

Richard Kilty (coach: Linford Christie) won the 100m in a big PB of 10.10, though such is the standard of British sprinting in 2013, that ranks him just equal fifth in the Power of ten rankings for 2013.

England Under 17 and Under-15 Championships, Bedford, September 1, August 31

Alicia Barrett (Daniel Duke) set a British record on electrical timing with a 11.01/1.7 80m hurdles victory. In her heat she recorded an even faster 10.91, but was assisted by an illegal 3.2mps tailwind.

She has won all 21 of her hurdle races this year, indoors and out and that includes wins in the English Schools, Schools International, ESAA Cup final and Northern Championships.

Morgan Lake (Eldon Lake) was in top class form, winning the high jump in a top class 1.88m and the triple jump in a windy 12.34m and both of these marks wer championships bests. She also won the long jump with 5.91m.

Shaun Pearce (Steve Perks) pulled off a surprise win in the under-17 men’s 100m in 10.42, though the tailwind was a strong 3.9mps.

That is the fastest 100m by an under-17 this year but Pearce only ranks seventh in the Power of Ten non windy lists with a best of 10.73.

There was a similar fast windy mark by Camron Lyttle (Liz Slater) in the under-15 event. The ESAA runner-up, assisted by a 3.3mps wind, won in 10.80, his first sub-11 and he defeated national under-15 record holder Kesi Oludoyi, who was third. The national record is 10.83 but Oludoyi has run a windy 10.77 this year.

Oludoyi did win the 200m, in a legal 22.62/1.2 to go top of the Power of ten rankings ahead of Michael Olsen (William Walker) who was close behind in 22.63 and goes second.

IAAF World Youth finalist Shannon Hylton (John Blackie) won the Under-17 100m in a legal 11.73/2.0 and made it a double with a 23.67/2.5 victory at 200m.

Alisha Rees won the under-15 girls 100m in a PB of 11.92/3.6 but it was wind assisted as was her 200m win in 24.64/3.1 and both were her fastest ever times.
