Rafi has a competition in York on Saturday, so the racerunning gang have been practicing getting some quick starts off the blocks. Rafi struggles a bit trying to get his feet in a good position, but his starts have really improved since using the starting blocks.
Coach Phil gave everyone laminated sheets of what to remember for competitions, and a sheet to fill in with race times and when to start warm up etc. We are so lucky that he is mega enthusiastic and goes out of his way to do what he can for his athletes ( and all for nothing as we don't pay him a penny!).
