Saturday was a great day in terms of sprint performance for the Sprint Team once the rain eventually stopped. There were some excellent performances and some outstanding pb’s considering the rain and the wind.
It is difficult to pull out highlights because there were so many, so I can only comment on the two championship records. Austen Lane won double gold against old rival Will Kennedy in the 100m and 200m with the 100m breaking the championship record. The finishes were very tight, none more so than the 100m which were separated by only 1/100th second. Thank heavens for photo-finish.
Jacob Ness broke his own championship record in the 400m with a 48.73, knocking ½ second off last years mark. This was his first proper race after struggling with a niggling hamstring since the start of the year so it was a relief for all of us for him to put in a decent performance.
Summary is 9 Golds, 9 silver, 7 bronze and 11 personal best performances and two Championship Records.
Wiltshire County Athletics Championships is less than there weeks away.
The county championships are the pinnacle for many athletes and it acts as a club championships for us in the absence of our own. We have an outstanding record at the Counties as a club.
Many of you haven’t entered yet, and if you aren’t entered shortly, your names won’t be entered on the photo finish system, on the tee shirts or in the program. Also entering on the day is more expensive.
