James Bedford put out a season’s best throw of 66.57m to take the gold medal in the men’s hammer final, just ahead of his training partner, Olympic finalist and Commonwealth silver medallist Alex Smith whose throw of 66.25m, gave him the silver medal.

Abbi Carter missed the entire 2014 season through injury. She went through a gruelling winter training schedule and entered the 2015 season fit and raring to go. She won the Hammer gold at the Humberside Championships in May and added the Northern Hammer title to it at Manchester, with a throw of 60.00m.

The third Northern Hammer gold was won by Maggie Okul in the under 20’s, when she made the second defence of the title she first won in 2013.

 

Luke Giblin, Kingston’s number one male sprinter, qualified for the final of the 200 metres race, where his run of 21.85s gave him a 5th place finish.

Meagan Hoult is the clubs number one female senior sprinter and she came through the heats and ran in the final of the 100 metres, where she clocked a time of 12.11s, for a 6th place finish. Megan had run a heat in 12.07s.

Gideon Okoh ran in the heats of the 100 metres where he recorded a time of 11.42s

In the hammer he was joined in the throwing circle by his fellow ‘Hull Hammer Squad’ members James Bedford and Alex Smith. John threw a distance of 40.32m, to finish in 10th place.

The shot putt saw John finish in 7th position with a throw of 12.30m.

Northern Athletics Track & Field Championships

Senior and under 20’s – Sport City, Manchester

Saturday 13th/Sunday14th June 2015

The 2015 Northern Championships were held at the Sport City complex which is situated fifty yards away from the ‘Etihad Stadium’ in Manchester. It is a very popular venue with the athletes. It boasts an indoor warm up track and call up area and the stadium is roofed and seated.

There was a good turnout of athletes from ‘Kingston’ and they were well supported by their parents and families and also friends and officials from the club. There were some truly outstanding performances from some of our young athletes, who fought their way into their event finals and competed magnificently.

The youth team stars brought back home to Costello 3 gold, one silver and one bronze medal, plus a host of PB’s and many excellent performances both on the track and on the field.

Charlotte Paterson had a fantastic start to 2015 when she was selected to represent England at the Welsh International in Cardiff, in March. She won the 60 metres race in Wales and collected a gold medal.

She had a great two days at the Northern Championships in Manchester over the last weekend 13/14th June. Saturday saw her win the 100 metres gold medal and set a new PB of 11.87s in the final. On Sunday she completed the sprint double, winning the 200 metres and taking her second gold in a time of 24.63s.

Maggie Okul arrived at Sport City on Sunday morning to make her second defence of her under 20 Hammer title, which she won in 2013 and then successfully defended last year. She made it a hat trick of victories and picked up her 5th Northern gold medal, with a throw of 50.23m.

The UK ranked No. 2 has now won two under 17 titles and further three at under 20 level, and boasts an unbeaten record at the Northern Championships.

Daniel Gray suffered cruel misfortune at the beginning of his 2015 campaign. At the Northern Indoor Championships in Sheffield he suffered a hamstring injury in the 400 metres final which cost him a certain medal.

He fared much better outdoors at Manchester, where he ran a superb final in the 400 metres and collected a thoroughly deserved silver medal. He also ran a lifetime best performance of 48.14s.

16 year old Dominic Singh is one of the clubs most promising young athletes and he competed in a higher age group, at under20 level in the 200 metres race. He successfully negotiated the heats and took his place in the blocks for the 200 metres final. Dom ran an excellent race and was in contention all the way to the line, to pick up a well earned bronze medal, and a good time of 22.39s.

Joe Cooper was battling hard with Dom for a medal place but just missed out. He finished in 4th with a time of 22.90s. Joe also reached the final of the 100 metres, where he ran a new PB of 11.10s, to take 5th place.

Harry Powell and Shaun Smith ran in the 5000 metres final and both of them set new PB’s. Harry ran 15:35.61s for a 4th place finish and Shaun finished 5th in a time of 16.24.38s.

Nicole Gray, younger sister of Dan competed in the discus final. She threw a new PB of 24.08m to claim a 4th place finish.

Humberside County Championships

Costello Stadium, Hull – Saturday 23rd May 2015

The 41st annual championship meeting was held at the Costello Stadium on Saturday 23rd of May 2015. Upwards of 250 athletes from clubs in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire and North and North East Lincolnshire assembled in Hull to try and win a county title.

The competition got off to a chilly start, with a biting wind and cloudy skies. The sun came out in the afternoon and temperatures reached a balmy 17 degrees.

The most remarkable event of these championships was the under13 girls100 metres final, where all 8 finalists were from one club, Kingston upon Hull. As far as I can ascertain this is the first time it has occurred in the 41 years the championships have been held.

UK Youth Development League  

Northern Division 2 – Match 2

Costello Stadium Hull – Saturday 16th May 2015

 

The Kingston Youth Teams (under17 & under 20) second league meeting of the track and field season was held at their home track at the Costello Stadium, Hull.

Our opposition once again came from the teams representing Rotherham Harriers & AC, Spenborough and District AC, Bingley Harriers & AC, and Grimsby Harriers.

It was a mostly dry day with sunny spells, but also a gusty and biting wind which made for difficult conditions on both the track and the field.

Kingston went into this meeting as the league leaders following our opening victory at Cleckheaton in April and we needed to win our home fixture to consolidate that victory.

Another magnificent effort from our athletes saw us sweep to victory by 179 match points. We are now 2 points clear at the top of the league and travel on the 28th of June to the Herringthorpe stadium, home track of our closest challengers Rotherham, for round three.

Full details of the team’s performances are as follows.

100 metres & 200 metres sprints – under 20 men

Joe Cooper is a dream to work with. He never gives less than 100 per cent effort and commitment and is a complete team player. He ran the ‘A’ race where he took 2nd place and set a new PB of 11.4s. Andrew Morgan-Harrison ran the ‘B’ race which he won in a time of 11.8s, but was the victim of terrible luck. As he wound down after crossing the finish line he suffered hamstring problems which put him out of the rest of the meeting.

 

Joe Cooper took another 2nd place finish in the 200 metres which he ran in his typical gutsy style, clocking 23.7s for his efforts. 15 year old Kyle Foster, who was making his league debut for Kingston, stepped in at short notice to fill in for the unfortunate Andy. Despite his nerves he did a great job for the team and took 3rd place in the ‘B’ race with a run of 27.1s.

400 metres race – under 20 men

The 400 metres brought together two more indispensable members of the team. Daniel Gray once again produced the goods for us. He dominated the ‘A’ race, which he won with ease, running a time of 50.0s. Josh Taylor-Brown ran the ‘B’ race for his team, which he also won, crossing the line in a time of 56.8s a new personal best time for Josh.

800 metres race – under 20 men

Josh Taylor-Brown was back in action, this time in his more familiar middle distance territory of 800 metres. He took 3rd place in the race and ran a time of 2:16.4s. Shaun Smith ran the ‘B’ race where he took 2nd place in a time of 2:11.5s.

1500 metres race – under 20 men

Harry Powell was the ‘A’ runner in the 1500 metres and he was the winner of the race, finishing 5 seconds ahead of his nearest rival. Shaun Smith ran the ‘B’ race which he also won and he finished 50 seconds ahead of his nearest rival. Shaun’s time was 4:18.5s.

3000 metres race – under 20 men

Another event where our track athletes stepped forward to aid the clubs cause. It does help of course that both of them enjoy throwing the hammer. Josh Taylor-Brown won the ‘A’ event and he set a new PB of 19.23m in the process. Jack Michaels also won the ‘B’ event with a throw of 17.65m.

Javelin Throw – under 20 men

East Riding Athletics Trials

Costello Stadium, Hull – Wednesday 13th June 2015

 

For the majority of junior and youth athletes throughout England the biggest competition of this and every year is the ‘English Schools Championships’. The 85th meeting of which, will be held in Gateshead on the 10th and 11th of July 2015.

In order to compete at the games the athletes have to attain the set entry standard, which is far from being easy. Once this is attained then they must wait and hope to be chosen to represent their athletic county at the championships. England Athletics decrees that county should be called Humberside.

The East Riding Trials provided a platform for all the young athletes in Hull and East Yorkshire to compete and to try to attain the relevant entry standard for their chosen event. They may attain standards in more than one event but if chosen for the games they can compete in only one event and the athlete must choose which it will be.

The following eight athletes all achieved the requisite entry standards to enable them to compete at Gateshead should they be selected to do so.

Hannah Kynman had already attained the entry standard for the Junior Girls 100 metres with a great run of 12.6s in the clubs first league outing of the season up at Carlisle. She got the standard for the 200 metres at the trials with a blistering run of 26.3s. The Northern indoor champion has started the track & field season in majestic form.

Emily Lyons another of our outstanding young female sprinters also attained the standard at the trials in the Inter Girls 100 metres with an excellent run of 12.6s. Emily then went on to contest the Inter Girls 200 metres where she also attained the required standard. Her recorded time was 26.1s.

 Olivia Stevenson is the No. 1 ranked Inter Girls hammer thrower in the UK and is also the UK record holder. She won the 3kg hammer at the trials with a massive throw of 58.81m.
