#ATHLETICSATHOME PART 5

It’s been another week of improvising and hammering the home workouts for our athletes and we’ve scrolled through the realms of their social media to bring you some of the best finds of the week.

  1. Dina Asher-Smith set the bar for this week’s Nike Indoor Cup with the ‘Block Busters Challenge’ and laid down a very strong marker of 175 for the rest of the world to try and beat.

2. Not to be outdone, heptathlete Niamh Emerson was back to take on the challenge, registering a very respectable 146 in her 45 second blast.

 

3. No hill is getting in the way of Harry Aikines-Aryeetey as he continues to keep himself shredded and speedy during these uncertain times.

4. Following the launch of the 2.6 challenge on Sunday, Futures athlete Eden Rainbow-Cooper took to the street to do her bit in support of the campaign.

5. Off the back of his recent British Athletics Workout Wednesday, Zak Skinner has been upping the levels at home as he keeps himself in as peak physical condition as he can.

7. Another entry for the Indoor Cup (and also one for the 2.6 challenge on his feed), Adam Gemili showcased his fleet-footed ability to the world as he well and truly dig deep to post a strong score.

8. Enforcing social distancing became a whole lot easier for Katarina Johnson-Thompson as she took a javelin out with her to keep that technique on point.

The javelin naturally enforces social distancing rules 😅🙂
