Sprint Performance – Wiltshire County Championships

City of Salisbury Sprint Performance

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.
