On Camp with Kelly

One of the participants in next month’s “On Camp with Kelly”, Charlotte Browning, 17, trains six times a week, often waking up at 5.30 in the morning to run before her A-level lessons begin — and fits in a social life.

“I left home and moved to Loughborough in order to train with the best possible facilities,” Browning said. “It’s still possible to go out and have fun with friends. My fresher’s week may have been toned down compared to other students’ experiences, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.”




On Camp with Kelly
25 Apr 2005
Dame Kelly met up with the junior girls she took to South Africa last year, at Loughborough University on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April and gave her full support to mentoring the talented middle distance runners to achieve their dreams in athletics.

Kelly started the two-day programme talking to the athletes, parents and coaches, reflecting on the Norwich Union sponsored ‘On Camp with Kelly’ experience in South Africa and looking ahead to their future:

“I really believe some of you will be at the 2012 Olympic Games, hopefully in London. Competing in front of a home crowd would be absolutely fantastic!”

Kelly announced plans for the girls to compete in two unique junior races this summer; at the Norwich Union International in Glasgow on 5 June and what promises to be a wonderful occasion at Sheffield on 21 August when Kelly races in her last track meeting in Great Britain.

She added: “Sheffield will be amazing, we’ve got big plans for that event! I want you all to be there racing.”

Kelly arranged for her Coach, Margo Jennings, currently teaching at an Elementary School in Oregon, USA to fly over to give inspirational talks on motivation and planning to the group.

Margo was passionate about the importance of mental training to athletes’ preparation, she said: “The greatest athletes in the world, all have highly developed mental skills, which take years to develop. I firmly believe that training your brain is as important as training your body.

“Setbacks should be seen as springboards. Adversity can be an inspirational teacher!”

“It is so important to surround yourself with motivating people, that believe in you. In Athens, Kelly’s room was full of motivational statements, quotes and good luck messages. That makes you feel positive.

“I have never seen such focus and concentration in an athlete, as Kelly was in Athens. She was completely absorbed and performed precisely as she visualised. It took incredible mental strength to win the 1500m, after the 800m, but she did it!”

Sports Physician Dr Paul Dijkstra, who is based in Potchefstroom, South Africa also made the trip to Loughborough and gave a series of detailed lectures, reviewing the topics covered ‘On Camp with Kelly’ and presentations on nutrition and injury prevention.

Each athlete also benefited from a physiotherapy check up with Alison Rose, a member of Kelly’s invaluable support team in Athens and a full medical with Paul Dijkstra.

On the final day, Kelly confirmed that she would take three athletes and their coaches to train with her in Europe in June,

The lucky three are: Dani Christmas (Crawley AC), Non Stanford (Swansea Harriers) and Charlotte Browning (Aldershot, Farnham and District AC).

Rounding off an inspirational weekend, Dame Kelly said:

“The girls have all matured beyond belief, they are very motivated. Everyone of you can achieve great things. I believe that you can make it, that’s why I put my time, energy and commitment into you girls.

“I will be your mentor for as long as you want me to be. No matter how busy I am in my life, and it’s pretty hectic at the moment, I will always have time for you.

“It will not be easy, there will be obstacles in your way. My obstacles and darkest days were very very long. I came from those darkest darkest days to the biggest light there can ever be, winning at the Olympic Games!”

“When I retire, I want to see my girls performing the best you can!”

AAA U20 Track & Field Championships

Pre-race: 1500m (4:20.00): While the amazing Emily Pidgeon (Gloucester) is expected to aim for the 5000m in Kaunas, she inevitably dominates the rankings all through the distances. She is European Juniors No.1 at 1500m has gone three seconds quicker this season than MacLarty, who is second in the UK rankings and fourth in Europe with 4:20.97. 

To underline the growing UK strength, Abby Westley is seventh in Europe with 4:21.99 – and then there are Kelly’s Campers entering the fray Charlotte Browning (Aldershot, Farnham and District), Danielle Christmas (Crawley), Hannah England (Oxford City), the Euro Juniors 3000m rankings leader Non Stanford (Swansea), Danielle Walker (Royal Sutton Coldfield) and Marrakech-bound Sian Edwards (Kettering).




Pre-race: Emily Pidgeon will be the overwhelming favourite even though the field includes European Junior 1500m Champion Morag MacLarty (Central AAC), who won at the Birmingham Cross Challenge at the start of this month and was last weekend named Scotland’s Athlete of the Year; in-form Nicola Sykes, who set a course record in leading Bedford and County AC to victory at the ECCA Relays Championships a fortnight ago; and several members of the squad being mentored by Olympic double Champion Dame Kelly Holmes including Charlotte Browning (Aldershot, Farnham and District), Dani Christmas (Crawley), Sian Edwards (Kettering), Hannah England (Oxford) and Non Stanford (Swansea Harriers).
