World Championships – Olympic Park London
WSEH AC had four athletes representing GB at the World Championships in the Olympic Park Stadium last week, with varying degrees of success.

Rachal Wallader was the first to appear in the Shot event on Tuesday. She was 12th in the qualifying round with a below par distance of 16m81 well short of her WSEH Club Record of 17m53 set last year.

WSEH AC’s Alder Valley Boys match on Sunday was fraught with problems when the coach booked to get the team to Portsmouth failed to arrive. Last minute re-arrangement got most of the team to Portsmouth by cars in time to compete in their respective events. School holidays had already caused gaps in the WSEH team. Good results from new members eased the problems and the local club eventually finished in 4th place in the match.
