Sixteen Brighton Athletes selected for the English Schools’ team

June 26, 2019

Congratulations to the many Brighton & Hove AC athletes who have been selected to represent Sussex at the English Schools Championships in Birmingham next month.

The ESAA National Track & Field Championships is the fourth largest athletics event in the World,  staged annually.

Organised entirely by volunteer teachers, the event brings together the best athletes from each county in England to compete for the honour of being the best athlete in the country at their event.

Athletes are selected by county team managers to represent Sussex. Prime consideration is given to performances at County Schools Championships but other outstanding performances elsewhere are taken into consideration.

Lizzie Korczak is the reigning inter-girls javelin champion and will be aiming to make it three titles in a row.

Sixteen of the 70 athletes are from our club and additionally Amber Anning was also chosen but had to stand down after her selection for the GB Junior team for the European under 20 championships in Sweden.
