England Athletics U15 Championships

Weekend, 27th-28th August 2016

Lone Bolton athlete, Taiwo Taiwo made the long journey to compete in her first EA national champs in Bedford this weekend. Although usually a 200m specialist, coach Les Hall encouraged her to compete over both distances.

IMG_7303aHe wasn’t to be disappointed and in a very difficult 100m heat, Taiwo ran a superb race and finished fourth in a time of 12.56s. Usually, this would mean a nervous wait to see if it is enough to qualify for the next round, but because of the race quality, Taiwo was sixth quickest overall. In the semi-final, she once again finished fourth, bizarrely repeating her 12.56s and qualifying for the final. All of the best athletes from around the country lined up for the final and Taiwo ran a fantastic race in 12.57 seconds, showing amazing consistency. She finished eighth, which moved her to 27th in the national rankings, having broken and equalled the club record twice in the space of 6 hours.

IMG_7314aAfter racing three times at maximum effort on the Saturday, it was always going to be tough to run in Sunday’s 200m. However, in her semi-final, she blasted right from the blocks and clocked a fantastic 25.46 seconds to finish second, only beaten by the current UK number 1, Alicia Regis. This was once again a club record which completed an amazing ‘club record double’ on the weekend. Lining up in lane 6 for the final, another fantastic race saw her finish fifth in 25.52 seconds, which moves her to 15th in the UK rankings.

It’s been a long season for Taiwo and she will ease down with a couple of low key events before taking a well deserved rest.
