February Athletes of the Month – Dan Bramble & Shelayna Oskan Clarke

The British Indoor Team Trials took place on the 11th of February as part of selection for the European Indoor Championships. Two supported athletes came away as champions; Dan Bramble (Long Jump) and Shelayna Oskan-Clarke (800m).

In a straight final, Shelyana Oskan-Clarke was rewarded for her front running efforts with her first British Indoor 800m title, having finished second on two previous occasions. Immediately taking up the running she was never ascended, crossing the line in 2.03.54, clear of fellow GSF supported athlete Adelle Tracey, the silver medallist.

Shelayna said, “I’m really happy to add the indoor (British) title to the outdoor one from last year. I’m not too happy with the time but that will come in my next few races. I dug myself out of a hole because I wasn’t very happy with my performance last week so this was an improvement.”

Meanwhile in the long jump Dan Bramble left it to his sixth and final jump to secure his third British title, a 7.80m leap stealing the title from decathlete Ashley Bryant who finished on 7.71m. Dan Bramble is the GSF ambassador for the borough of Hillingdon and we hope he will be attending some GLL events this year.

Both athletes have had a very strong month and secured selection for the European Indoor Championships – watch this space!
