Andys final was won in 6.82 secs and he won convincingly from an explosive start from the blocks which we have been working on with Andy and the group of 12 other sprinters at Sale Harriers.  John commented after the race that Andy is in 6.66 form and really needed some stronger competition to push his time down into the 6.7 secs area.  Charles ran an equaling personal best time of 6.99 secs again winning comfortably having got his drive phase right from the blocks to the first 20 m.

 

It was a good championship for all our sprinters we took nine sprinters for the 60 m sprints (three age groups) with six of them makng the move through the heats and semi finals to compete in the finals.

14 JAN 2011

ANDY ROBERTSON - Sprinter  - Sale Harriers - Coached by John Smith and PSA.

Andy Robertdon will be competing in this weeks Northern Indoor Athletics Championships and is the current 60 m Northern England Champion from 2010 - time 60 m 6.75 secs representing Sale Harriers. 

He competed in his first run out on the 2nd of Jan 2011 having done the winter Speed Endurance including hill sessions on Formby Sand dunes with the sprint group from Sale who relisth the challenge of sprinting up hills which helps with strength and power and builds up speed endurance and is important in our winter program.

On 2nd Jan He ran at our home venue Sports City Manchester (known as a slow track) with an opening race win over 60 m Sprint in 6.79 secs and 50 mins later did another 60 m Sprint in 6.85 secs . I am sure this is getting the attention of the top sprint coaches in the UK.

He is competing in the Northern Indoors Championship at Sheffield Arena on Sat  15 th Jan and should compete well and is hoping to break his northern record of  6.75 secs for the 60 m.   We also have another 8 sprinters who will be looking to be very competitive in the under 17 age group and the under 20 age group including Charles Burke last years 60 m Under 17' s Champion in 7.05 secs and some new athlete who have joined the group and are progressing well.
