Mel Cooksey makes AAA 100m Final

Mel Cooksey had a superb weekend at the AAAs Champs in Birmingham last weekend. She ran a pb in the 100m heats with 11.79 to take her through to the semis where she ran 11.86 to finish fourth and qualify for the final the next day where Mel ran 11.92 for 8th.

Also having qualified through the 200m heatsĀ  with 24.27 Mel then proceeded to run 24.37 in the semi-final for a dead heat in 4th place. Not being able to split the two athletes mean that Mel was massively unluckly to miss out on her second final by a coin toss.

Our other representative at the weekend was Phil Nicholls in the 5000m. Unfortunately Phil had been struggling the week leading up to the event and wasn't able to perform like he can. Still putting himself on the line he came 10th with 14.11.

The club defintely has more athletes capable of making the AAAs and they'll hopefuly be pushing to make the step up and we'll see them there next year.
