Hello and a warm welcome to
StatPack Mark 19 which updates the
last (September 2017) version to include marks achieved during the 2018 indoor and outdoor seasons.
Simon Kilminster compiled the
first edition of StatPack well over 20 years ago and although occasionally details from earlier years
occasionally surface almost all the changes in this edition again come from
performances from the current bunch of talented athletes who continue to
rewrite these rankings almost as soon as they can be produced!
The 2018 season has been a truly
year for club athletes which has seen fourteen individual
plus four relay records fall, with three of these being updated records in the Under 15 & Under 17 women's throws
where a change
of weights took effect from April 2014.
There were two Senior Women's records,
once again set by siblings Zoe and Mayi Hughes. After last year erasing the longest standing club record when she
Young's 1963 senior shot record,
improved it further this year. Her younger
and equally talented sibling Mayi Hughes
improved her own Under 20 Women's and Senior
triple jump mark three times.
also set a
new record in the Under 17 Women's 500g javelin,
after setting new Under 15 marks last year, and Alex Adeniji improved the
best with the 4kg shot in the same Under 17
age group. Lola
Kuponiyi's new 3kg shot record in the
Girls' age group was the second longest ever in the UK by an Under
15 with this weight, and her throw also improved the former
Jessie Collier's new club
pole vault mark was the sixth best ever by any club female. There were two relay
A new mark was twice set in
4x300m relay as
Uche Okpalauko, Olivia Boachie, Ruby Mace
Alice Brown shaded a mark set by a quartet
which included Freya Higginbottom instead of
Uche earlier in the summer - this performance also improving the
record in the process. The
4x100m relay record,
which had stood since 1971, was beaten three times by the quartet of
Aaliyah Payne, Paige Robinson, Shalom Gbadebo
and Isabella Smith.
There was an impressive record
20 men's and Senior men's
categories as Shandell Taylor's English
Schools' winning mark not only improved the Under 20 best but also broke the
senior record set in 1964 by Olympian Fred Alsop. - only the third senior record
to fall in recent years.
Max Law improved the
Under 17 Men's javelin record three times
before a massive 75m throw in Great Britain colours - the second longest ever by
a UK Under 17 - topped the lot and means that Max now holds the club Under 13,
Under 15 and Under 17 javelin records, as he steps up to the
20 men's age group.
Two individual and a relay
record fell in the
Under 15 Boys
age group as
Toby Bishop shaved one 100th of a second off the previous mark and
Sam Sanusi who broke the Pentathlon best in
winning the English Schools' pentathlon title. The 4x300m relay
record also fell when
Bradley James, Daragh Thomas, Jacob Blanc and
Charlie Black bettered the year-old mark
Finally, two records fell in the
Boys age group both from Dominic Alexandru
who set a new mark in the 75m
hurdles in May, and later in the summer improved the pentathlon best.
Yet another fantastic season for
resulted in a glut of new marks in the
all time lists which offers much promise for future years!
