Blackheath & Bromley Harriers featured heavily in the Kent County awards which were recently presented.

Adam Gemili, who this summer became only the second British athlete to have run under 20 seconds for the 200 metres, was the Male Athlete of the Year.

The women’s winner was Shaunagh Brown who has made fine progress in the hammer.

She has improved by nearly five metres to 66.06, a distance which sees her third ranked in the country this year.

After becoming European Junior 200 metre champion and winning a bronze medal in the 4x100 metres at the World Championships, Dina Asher-Smith is the Young Female Athlete of the Year.

Fittingly her coach John Blackie is the Kent Coach of The Year.

Adam and Dina are also nominees for British Athletics annual awards. Adam is in contention for the Male Athlete Of The Year while Dina is nominated for Young Athlete Of The Year. Voting closes at midnight tomorrow.
