S-Factor Academy pays tribute to the incredible athletic career of our ambassador CHRISTINE OHURUOGU.
Christine is a phenomenal role model for our athletes and has shown that talent, hard work and focus truly pays off.
Beginning in 2003 at the European Junior Championships with her bronze medal win, over her 15yr+ career,
Wow! Despite the miserable weather, Saturday 12th May was an incredible day of athletic competition for our seniors who competed in the Kent Championships and Surrey Championships. It was a day of personal best and new club records.
At the Kent Championships in Ashford GEORGE MUANA won silver (50s30) and KIMANI SMART won bronze (50s35) in the Senior Men’s 400m!
Every year around Easter, S-Factor gathers together a team of athletes and coaches to head for warmer climates for an intense period of warm weather training in preparation of the competition season. http://sfactoracademy.co.uk/warm-weather-training/
THIS YEAR we went to Monte Gordo resort in Algarve, Portugal: http://www.sportstrainingcamps.co.uk/27.html
With a ~20-strong consort of athletes/coaches/carers we had an extremely productive and enjoyable week at the Monte Gordo training facility and our athletes came back full of vigour and motivation for the competition season ahead.
Thank you to all who attended our Annual General Meeting on Saturday 5th May, where we discussed some highlights to date from the club’s various divisions and some of our future plans. We hope you found it a useful forum to engage with us and you gained an insight into how the club is managed.
HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY TO OUR INCLUSIVE GROUP!
On Saturday 30th March 2018, S-Factor’s Inclusive Group celebrated its 5th birthday.
The group has grown from just two athletes in 2013 to over 90 today, with hundreds more at school outreach/events/camps.
A big thank you to Lead Inclusive Coach Adam and the Inclusive team,
Happy Birthday to our founder Lisa Miller who had the foresight and vision to establish S-Factor Academy in April 2010 in response to a demand for an all inclusive athletics club. Thank you Miss Miller!
