A relatively quiet week for Woodford athletes, with too few available competitions to take advantage of the almost perfect athletics weather over the last week. There was however news of Daniel Rowden who made the semi-final of the World Junior Championships, and of Tiffany Porter, Cindy Ofili and Tosin Oke who competed at the London Anniversary Games over this weekend.
Several Woodford athletes have been in action in the last several days, recording a number of useful performances including a personal best in the discus for Chris Linque.
Three Woodford athletes have today been selected for the GB & NI team for the Rio Olympics. Sisters Tiffany Porter and Cindy Ofili are both selected for the 100m Hurdles and Mark Dry is selected for the hammer.
Tosin Oke and Olu Olamigoke have both been selected in the triple jump for Nigeria.
The new men’s cross-country and road team manager, Darren Southcott got his tenure off to a medal-winning start, as he and teammates Louis Clark and individual bronze medallist Angus Holford took silver at the Essex road 10k championships in Felsted on Sunday.
