This weekend was a busy one for Stellar Athletes as they set the standards at their National Championships, in bid to make the World indoor Championships 1st – 4th March and the Commonwealth Games 4th – 15th April.

Sharika Nelvis broke the American record in the 60m hurdles.  This was one of the strongest field of the championships and the crowd were not disappointed  as Sharika  turned into an American record holder and world leader to win the women’s hurdles in 7.70, taking first over outdoor world record holder Keni Harrison in 7.72 – a time that had been the American record before. Christina Manning was a very close third in a lifetime-best 7.73.  Sharika  was just .02 off the world record as she ran the third-fastest time in history. It was also the fastest race, overall, in history.

Marquis Dendy LJ improved himself from fourth to second in the fifth round with a jump of 8.22m.

At the British Indoor Championships…

Elliot Giles won Gold in the Men’s 800m after  running an impressive race, pulled away from the field at the final bend to win in a time of 1.49.91.  Back on the track after running a personal best in the 60m with a time of 6.35  the day before  Finette Agyapong clocked 23.30 to claim the 200m title ahead of Meghan Beesley with 23.57 great start to 2018.

Adam Hague was in outstanding form at the Championships showing who was in command  recording a jump of 5.65. Clearing every height with his 1st attempt this flawless performance will set Adam up nicely as he prepares for the Commonwealth games on the Gold Coast..
