Results catch up

Posted: July 31, 2014 by Nick C in Race reports

Better late than never, a few results to catch up on. The YDL results for the lower and upper age group meetings are now available on the PoT.

YDL – Lower age group

YDL – Upper age group

There were some particularly strong performances for the throwers. At the U13/U15 meeting Regan Keating set a new club record of 8.57 metres in the under 13 shot, which takes her to number 4 in the West Midlands rankings. She came 2nd in the ‘A’ competition – Not bad after 6 weeks training and in her first competition!

In the upper age group Chrissie Prince set a new U17 Hammer record of 28.94 metres. Meanwhile Connor Notley was on fire setting two new club records:
  • U17 Hammer 41.84 metres (now ranked 2nd in W Mids)
  • U17 Discus 38.65 metres (now ranked 4th in W Mids)
He also threw a new PB of 12.09 metres in the U17 shot (now ranked 5th in W Mids) and is very close to breaking the club record, which has stood since 1993 (before he was born!)
Elsewhere Rob Andrew set a new Club record for the M50 1 mile of 4.42.58 at a BMC race in Oxford. Well done all!
