In the UK we have a rich, committed sporting culture and many of the country’s most gifted athletes start edging into the spotlight at university level. What better way to show of the brilliance of such individuals than the BUCS Nationals? Now in its fifth year the competition is an amazing showcase of student sport, and it all kicked off last night in Sheffield...

The women’s 60 metre sprint saw Hannah Brier win for Loughborough in an astounding 7.31 seconds, matching the 2007 record of Brunel’s Montel Douglas. She was followed by Adeline Gouenon, of St Mary’s, (finishing in 7.40 seconds) with Middlesex’s Diani Walker in third (7.41), East London’s Corinne Humphreys in fourth (7.41), Brunel’s Lukesha Morris in fifth (7.52), Cardiff Metropolitan’s Charlotte Wingfield in sixth (7.56), and in seventh Birmingham’s Charlotte Orton (7.68).

Meanwhile in the men’s 60 metre sprint Loughborough came out on top again, with Adam Thomas coming first in a superb 6.75 seconds. He was followed by Adeseye Ogunlewe, of East London, who finished in 6.80 seconds, with Goldsmith’s Reuben Arthur in a close third (6.81), Stirling’s Cameron Tindle in fourth (6.84), Brunel’s Luke Dorrell in fifth (6.88), Leeds Beckett’s Elliot Hurley in sixth (6.88), and with Chichester’s Jordan Gill and Swansea’s Sam Ige in joint seventh (6.96).

Continuing on from the sprinting, the track was again the centre of attention for the women’s 60 metre hurdles with Alicia Barrett claiming first place for Sheffield Hallam in an impressive 8.26 seconds. Chasing after Barrett there came Yasmin Miller, of London South Bank, (completing the race in 8.30 seconds) with Brunel’s Emma Nwofor coming in third (8.41), East London’s Sydney Griffin in fourth (8.42), and Brighton’s Elise Lovell in fifth (8.67). Unfortunately Leicester’s Lucy Hatton came in sixth after failing to qualify.

Over in the men’s 60 metre hurdles however it was Birmingham’s Jack Porter who came in first place, in an admirable 7.96 seconds, followed by Loughborough’s Euan Dickson-Earle (8.09 seconds). In third place came East London’s Jared Lane (8.12), with Leeds Beckett’s Jack Major in fourth (8.13), Loughborough’s Shamindra Perera in fifth (8.14), Durham’s Maranga Mokaya in sixth (8.34), Brunel’s Reece Young in seventh (8.44), and finally Durham’s William Ritchie-Moulin came in eighth (8.46).

And so concluded the short distance track events of the BUCS Nationals after just day one of the sporting tournament. Needless to say that someday the names listed in these four finals will again appear, perhaps even on our TV screens during the Commonwealth or Olympic Games, so keep an eye out and keep informed about the rest of the tournament. You never know, you could be hearing about future Olympians.
