There were a number of very good performances in this first Kent Young Athletes League match of the season. Dina Asher-Smith not only achieved a grade 1 time in the 150m, but it also equalled the club record and takes her to number 1 in the country. Liam Cater achieved a very good grade 2 throw in the javelin and it is probably only a matter of time before he hits a grade 1. I must make note of the girls 4 x 100m relay team. Not only did they win, but they did it in style probably 40 metres ahead of the opposition.
A number of the children definitely improved their performances in terms of technique and style, and so if points were awarded for that type of improvement they would have scored heavily!
For your information, all but one of the Under 13 girls team were from the Bees Academy and quite a few of the boys. The girls won their section of the match convincingly whilst the boys were second.

These results have been pulled from the overall results where age-groups were mixed up. I have tried to strip out all school years 6 & 7 irrespective of whether they are Bees athletes.

The London Borough of Bromley Trials for the Adidas Mini London Marathon will be taking place on Sunday 2nd March 2008 at Norman Park Athletics Track.
This event as usual, will be run on the morning of the London Marathon, over approximately the last 5km of the course, finishing in The Mall.
Bromley has a remarkable record in the Mini Marathon, usually finishing in the top four.
The current sponsors of the Mini Marathon, 'Adidas', are keen to ensure that the event retains it's charitable reputation; this year we, in Bromley, are encouraging participants to obtain sponsorship money to help with the provision of good competitive opportunities for Bromley's young disabled athletes.
As in previous years the London Boroughs and additional selected guest counties throughout the United Kingdom will be participating.
Teams will consist of 8 runners, girls and boys, in three age groups with only the London Borough teams scoring in the overall competition.

On Sunday 2nd September athletes from Blackheath & Bromley became the National Champions of the UK Athletics sponsored Young Athletes League. The UKA Young Athletes League is the most prestigious league that any young athlete from within the United Kingdom can take part in. This is the third time in the last four years, since this league has been joint boys and girls, that we have taken this title.

Here are the results of the RJT held on 25th July at Norman Park. Please note the overall results are based on an aggregation of points allocated for each event using Under 13 English Schools scoring tables. In some cases despite registering a mark, the points allocated may be zero, this does not indicate a no-score but simply the score was not in this case sufficient to register against the table.
