Jack Petchey Achievement Award April/May
For the Jack Petchey Achievement Award in April we had one nomination, so no vote was required. The well-deserved award goes to Sheikh Muhidin. Sheikh puts enormous effort into training, not least travelling frequently across London to get to our training venue at Kingsmeadow. His commitment paid off this year: competing in his fifth London Mini Marathon, he repeated his 2009 success in the younger age group, this time winning the U17 wheelchair race in a massively improved PB.
We now have to find the winner of the May award, so please send me nominations, as usual with a little blurb about the reasons for the nomination, by Wednesday 1 June. The award is by no means limited to top performances; commitment to training, working for the team, overcoming personal difficulties are just some of the many possible achievements (see http://www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk/?young-achievers/your-stories.html for examples).
The Club’s JP Award Winners so far:
2011 (Matthew P Stevens, Sheikh Muhidin…)
2010 (Tucker Bryant, William van Klaveren, Dominique Blaize, Philippa Wingate, Nadia Allan, Matt Field)
2009 (Nikolaj Schubert, Adam Wicks, George Corcoran, Emily McIlwain, Lauren Edwards, Maddy Hardwick)
2008 (William Trimble, Molly Renfer, Tom Parry, Gaby Miles, Humphrey Waddington)
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
