With summer been and gone, our August update of our Ecolution Athletes couldn't be any better.
We have two of the eight, Robbie and Dominic, now in USA until next summer on an amazing opportunity. We wish them all the best of luck and look forward to hearing about their success.
It has been a busy month for our 8 athletes, broken up with some well-deserved rest before the winter season -
Nicole Taylor raced once in August, and once again it resulted in a personal best. She finished third in the South of England under 20 Inter Counties, 1500 metres in 4.36.06. This was her last race of the track season, before having a break. Nicole remains at Brighton University for the coming year.
Dominic Brown having accepted a track scholarship with Eastern Kentucky, in USA stopped track racing in July and spent a few weeks building up training in preparation for his move.
Sean Molloy had two 400 metre races in early August, winning them both. One was a league race and the other in the Tonbridge open meeting. In the latter he ran 48.92, which was only 0.04s away from his personal best. Since then he has had a break. Sean remains at College in Gillingham for the coming year.
Andy Combs continues to have to rest, due to an Achilles tendon injury. He is waiting for treatment to be undertaken, it will be a while before he returns. Andy is currently based near Tonbridge and is looking for a full time career.
Ryan Driscoll had his last race of the track season in August, which was over 1500 metres, at Watford. He ran 3.57.23, but the pace was outside what he had hoped for. Since then he has had a break from racing and a few days off from training, before starting to build again for the Winter season. Ryan is about to commence the final year of his degree at St Marys University, Twickenham.
Tom Cox had two races in early August, including winning an 800 metres in an open meeting at Tonbridge. He has had a break from racing and is due back in action mid-September.
Robbie Farnham-Rose finished off his track season with a 3000 metres at Solihull, where he ran a personal best of 8.18.68 to finish second. He has chosen to go back to university in Alabama, USA taking up a track scholarship once again.
Luca Russo has regained a lot of fitness since an injury earlier in the year and is due to race again in September. Luca is about to commence the final year of his degree at St Marys University, Twickenham.
