Congratulations to Ben Clarke on becoming ESAA Midlands Combined Events intermediate boys champion for the second year running. In a strong throws dominated field, Ben was able to use his strengths in 400m, 100H, high jump and 1500m to secure victory with a new pb and club record of 4619 points. This places him 8th in the national rankings for octathlon, and qualifies him for the ESAA national finals in September. Well done Ben.

Jenny Nesbitt was 6th in the England Championships 10,000m at Parliament Hill and Alice Wright won the 10,000m at the Mountain West championships in USA. Both have now achieved the UKA standard for the European U23 Championships. This puts Alice 8th in the all-time Under-23 list and for 2015 Alice is 2nd and Jenny 4th in the Under-23 10000m list. The two ladies their and coach Dave Walker are certainly flying the flag for Worcester AC. Well done!
