Hello and a warm welcome to
StatPack Mark 21 which updates the
last (September 2019) version to include marks achieved during the 2020 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 2020 season has been the most
challenging on record. After a full indoor season, the COVID epidemic took hold
and athletes was "locked down" for months on end, with the competitive season
wiped out and a short sharp six to eight week season, mainly of open events ran
in August and September. It's remarkable that any new club records were set -
but the fact that any were is a great credit to the athletes and their coaches,
The first records to fall were set during the
indoor season. In December 2019
set a new
indoor pentathlon record in winning South of England gold while
three marks were broken at the England Athletics Indoor
Championships at Sheffield.
60m Hurdles records
three times before improving it twice more in winning national silver
set a new
Under 17 Men's 60m hurdles mark for another
silver. The third mark went to Denzel Achi who improved the
Under 17 and
Under 20 Men's 60m sprint record. A fifth club record set indoors
went to Harvard student
improved her own Senior Women's triple jump
mark indoors in New York in March before the lock down.
It was the relay events that saw the first outdoor records'
of the short summer season as both Under 17 teams
set new marks at the Club: Connect
Relays at the start of September - the only relays event as all leagues were
Under 17 Women's sprint relay quartet of
Shalom Gbadebo, Karis Thomas, Paige Robinson
and Aaliyah Payne broke
the club record in that age group dating back to 2004, and also improved
Under 20 Women's record for good measure.
Under 17 Men's foursome of
Sam Sanusi, Ridwan Salaam, Jacob Blanc and Denzel Achi beat the
year old 4 x 100m relay record in that age group and such was their mark that it
also improved the Under 20 Men's record set
back in 1986.
The final two records to fall
came in the Under 15 300m events as
Al-Ameen Salaam and
both set new age group marks.
The short season also
brought other new marks in the
all-time lists and we hope that the 2021 season will see a return to more marks
