Throws coaching

Please be advised that there will be no throws coaching at WAAS tomorrow

Pre-Worlds throws competitions

It has been pointed out that there is only one hammer in the 4 weeks leading up to Worlds. Therefore on 4th October at WAAS we are offering a hammer throw in addition to the javelin, and athletes can choose one or the other. If all athletes present wanted discus instead of hammer, that would be OK

Pre-worlds track meet – 24th September

The results of this meeting are now on the website under special events on the track results tab
