Cross country success

Posted by Danny Tolhurst, Tuesday, 12th February 2013 @ 7:20pm

  • In the Midland Women’s League, Stratford AC’s Masters Women (35 years old and upwards) won the Masters competition in thrilling fashion, holding off Wolverhampton & Bilston AC by just four points. Great performances in final race at Cheltenham clinched the title for the club.

    The Senior Women were 8th on the day and 5th overall, behind four of the biggest clubs in the Midlands; Birmingham University, Birchfield Harriers, Loughborough University and Coventry Godiva Harriers. This was the club’s best ever result and is richly deserved.

    The Men's team have also had a very good season in Division Two of the Birmingham Cross Country League. Finishing 10th in such a competitive division is a smashing result.

Pozzi runs 7.62 at European Championships Trials

Posted by Danny Tolhurst, Tuesday, 12th February 2013 @ 7:12pm


  • Andrew Pozzi travelled to Sheffield for the British Athletics European Trials & UK Championships as the 2nd fastest 60m Hurdler in Europe with a time of 7.58 seconds (just 0.01 seconds behind Balazs Baji of Hungary). Hopes were high of a gold medal and another fast time.
     
    In his semi-final, Pozzi cruised to an easy victory in 7.62 seconds, inside the European Championships qualifying time of 7.65, and he was the fastest qualifier for the final. However, he decided not to line-up for the race as a precautionary measure.

    The initial news in the stadium and the press was that Pozzi had injured his hamstring,  but he said later in the day that this wasn’t the case.

    When Pozzi was interviewed after the semi-final race he was looking forward to running a good time in the final and, while he didn’t feel he had run up to his best, he knew what was required to correct the minor errors.

    Pozzi was happy with his reaction time out of the blocks but was less pleased with his speed to the first hurdle and it took him longer to get going than he would have liked. By hurdle three he began to gain some momentum and felt that it was another reasonable performance after his 7.58 in Birmingham.

    Pozzi’s main aim for the short-term future is to stay healthy, put in some good training and avoid any further injury niggles.

    Pozzi is set to take part in the Aviva Grand Prix at the NIA on Saturday 16th February where, all being well, he will line-up for a semi-final and a final. The action will be shown live on BBC One.

Stratford upon Avon AC AGM

Andrew Pozzi - No.1 in Europe for 60m Hurdles

Posted by Danny Tolhurst, Wednesday, 6th February 2013 @ 8:16am

  • Stratford AC's Andrew Pozzi had a sensational 2012 including becoming the UK 110m Hurdles champion and achieving 4th place in the World Indoor Championships in the 60m Hurdles. At the Birmingham Games on Sunday 3rd February he showed the world just what kind of shape he is in with a tremendous demonstration of hurdling speed and technique.

    In his heat, Pozzi looked razor-sharp and ran 6.58 seconds, the best time by a European athlete so far this year His time was just 0.02 outside the personal best he set last February when he finished just behind Liu Xiang, the World Indoor Championships silver medallist.

    Pozzi wasn’t phased by the incredibly fast start of Jack Meredith a few lanes inside him. By the third hurdle Pozzi’s superior balance and power meant he had drawn level and only needed to stay tidy to gain a victory. He powered clear and gave 100% all the way to the line, putting himself at the top of the European rankings ahead of Konstantin Shabanov of Russia who ran 6.59 seconds in Moscow the same day.

    Fortunately, by being so far ahead of his rivals, Pozzi was able to avoid the incident when the athlete in Lane 7 stumbled at the penultimate hurdle, careering head first into the final hurdle in Lane 8. The Lane 8 runner was left without a hurdle to jump and had to run off the track to avoid the stricken faller.

    In the Final, Pozzi was once again the winner, but this time he stopped the clock at 7.91 after experiencing cramp. This was his slowest indoor race since the Aviva Grand Prix two years ago but with the earlier race in the bank there was much to be very pleased about.

    The next event for Pozzi will be the European Indoor Trials and UK Championships in Sheffield on Saturday 9th February. Following that he is scheduled to appear at the Aviva Grand Prix at the NIA in Birmingham on Saturday 16th February.
