Due to the National Surf Life Saving Nipper and Junior Champs in Cardiff this weekend, there will be no training on Saturday 26th or Sunday 27th March.
We’ll be back to normal the week after. Good luck to all competitors, coaches and supporters who are going!
Izzy continued her dream cross country season at the English Schools Cross Country Championships in Nottingham at the weekend, finishing eighth in the Intermediate Girls race and gaining selection for the England team in this weekend’s Home Countries Schools International race in Dublin.
Izzy’s performance was all the more remarkable as she is in the younger year of this age category and remains eligible for the same age group next year. The Falmouth School student is a member of Gyllyngvase Surf Life Saving Club and regularly attends training sessions at Cornwall Athletic Club.
Peter Meredith, her coach at Cornwall Athletic Club, takes up the story, “Izzy settled in around 20th after the first 500 metres and after the first one kilometre small lap, she had moved into the mid teens. The runners then had one big lap, which is flat for three quarters of the way, followed by a long hill with a steep last 150 metres, before swooping down to the finish over the last 200 metres. As she reached the steepest part of the course, she had moved up to 12th and proceeded to pass two more on the hardest section of the hill. It was then all down to the final sprint to the line and she made up two more places, to snatch her well deserved England team place. The going was good underfoot, which suited her and this was truly a fantastic result in her first year of competitive running.”
Also reprensenting Cornwall was Charlotte Emsden, who finished 220th in the Junior Girls race.
Well done Issy and Charlotte!
