More County Success
During the last couple of weeks there has been some very exciting news released from the sport’s National
Governing Bodies involving a very local interest on a global scale. British Athletics has announced its teams for 2
Championship events.
Firstly, the European Under-23 Championships team go to Tallinn, Estonia on 9th -12th July and includes Yasmin
Miller (Derby AC: Coach Lloyd Cowan) for the 100mHurdles and Jessica Turner (Amber Valley & Erewash AC:
Nick Dakin) for the 4 x 400m Relay. Derbyshire Athletics congratulates Yasmin and Jessica, their respective
clubs, coaches and parents on their selection.
Secondly, a team representing GB heads off to Cali, Colombia 15th -19th July for the World Youth
Championships. Of the 27 team members there will be local interest in the shape of Alicia Barrett (Chesterfield &
District AC: Coach Daniel Duke) in the 100m Hurdles and Niamh Emerson (Amber Valley & Erewash AC: David
Feeney) in the gruelling Heptathlon. What a fantastic achievement for both of these local girls. The county offers
its congratulations to Alicia and Niamh. Come back with some happy memories of South America!
Thirdly, four Derbyshire athletes, from a team total of 21, have been selected to represent England at the
Commonwealth Youth Games to be held in Samoa from 5th - 11th September. Derbyshire Athletics offers its
congratulations to all four athletes, their respective clubs, their coaches and to some extremely proud parents.
The four athletes are twins Alicia Barrett (Chesterfield & District AC: Coach Daniel Duke in the 100mHurdles), Ella
Barrett (Chesterfield & District AC: Coach Daniel Duke 200m), Niamh Emerson (Amber Valley & Erewash AC:
Coach David Feeney 400mHurdles & High Jump) and Ryan Gorman (Notts AC: Coach David Hourd 200m &
Relay).
For such a small county to have a 20% representation is very significant. We wish all the youngsters a successful
and enjoyable trip to other side of the world. They should have some very interesting stories to tell on their return
home.
It is a tremendous achievement by all these athletes who have developed through their dedication and
perseverance to training, ambition to achieve and the skills, knowledge and perseverance of their respective
coaches. The parents who drive them around to training and competitions week in and week out are a very
important part of the support team. Derbyshire heartily congratulates everyone who has played a part in their
success and we look forward to following their successes in the near future and long-term. It is pleasing to write
and read of these successful youngsters, some of whom, started their competitive lives in the Derbyshire Mini
League.
