BUAC Roundup - 13th September

Updated: Dec 20, 2020

Contributions from James Davis and George Loxton

Some fast running on the continent for both Issy Boffey and Chris McAlister this week, while the usual strong performances also came out of the vast depth of talent contained within BUAC MD.

British bronze medallist Amelia Quirk provided the performance of the week, going UK#15 this year with her 4:14.4 (HT) at Aldershot.

In the field, Poppy Bean was back in action, backing up her recent club record with another 50m+ throw.


Internationales LA Meeting Anhalt

Dassau-Roßlau, Germany (8/9)

800 Issy Boffey 2:04.02 6th

In a season which has already been turned on its head, it perhaps it should have come as less of a surprise for those watching the meeting online to encounter coverage of all field events, at the expense of track.

With women's long jump and men's javelin featuring home favourites and world leaders Malaika Mihambo and Johanes Vetter, after some early showings of women's hurdles races, the next coverage out on the track was of the final lap of the men's 800 metres, the last track event of the day.

Despite being unseen by those at home, Boffey's 2:04.02 was faster than both of her slightly more televised runs at the previous weekend's British Championships, and her second fastest of the season.

Emma Howsham* 4:38.4 11th

English Schools' finalists from last year over 800 and 3000, incoming athletes Ellie Farrow and Charlotte Alexander met in the middle in Aldershot, both racing over 1500. Farrow's PB-setting run placed her UK#9 U20 this year, while Alexander's season's best placed her UK#4 U20.

Running with Alexander in the women's elite race were Amelia Quirk and Maisie Grice, the latter setting a PB on home turf, taking a second from her best set in Watford last year.

Quirk's run was stellar, placing her UK#15 this year, and her performance was just second on the day to a fellow bronze medallist from the British Championships, Katie Snowden.
