Reading AC Relay Teams Perform at Olympic Stadium

Five Reading AC relay teams competed at London's Olympic Stadium on 22 July 2018 and claimed three new club records in the process.  The U15 Girls attained their second 4x100m record in twenty-four hours and fourth of the season clocking 49.13 secs and finishing second. The U15 boys shaved eight one-hundredths off the previous record with a 45.20 secs performance and a third place.  This result meant that anchor runner Reuben Henry-Daire bagged his fourth club record in twenty-four hours in what surely must be his best weekend ever in athletic competition.  The U17 Men also attained a new club record by 0.83 secs clocking in at 43.57 secs finishing fifth.   The U13 girls narrowly missed the club record with 52.89 secs and a third place with the U13 boys crossing the line in seventh place in a time of 53.38 secs.

Not forgetting the squad reserve runners this was truly an inspiring day for all who participated.
