Indoor Meeting At SportCity.
The second club promoted indoor meeting at Sportcity at the weekend was another successful day, with a fine entry and good athletics.
Nyef Abed led the sprinters with a 6.93sec clocking. Allyn Condon 7.28secs slow by his standards, but nevertheless our Olympian was a most welcome participant. Kevin Metzger (U/15) flew to a Pb of 8.04secs and Kelly Chadwick (U/13) registered a Pb of 8.40secs.
Jennifer Simmons graced the 400 metres with a new pb of 57.21 secs. Race of the day was the 600m, won by Richard Yates in 79.20secs. Clovis Asong was 3rd with a pb of 79.91secs, and Josh Oguntayo was just a shade off his best clocking 80.74secs. A really cracking race led by Clovis with Yates and Sam Dykes only out strenghening Clovis over the last 20 metres.
Tyra Watson flowed round in 97.93secs and Remelo Edwards (U/17) ran 91.33secs for a new pb. The Pole Vault featured Matt Cullen clearing 4m 55cms, then narrowly missing 4m 80cm. Spectators were treated to the sight of Luke Cutts ( Dearnside ALC) attempting 5m 50cms - an awesome sight indeed. Welcome pbs from Alex Wort 4m 10cm and David Campbell 3m 65cm, backed up by Jacob Sutcliffe's 3m 50cm. Lloyd Robbins (U/17) impressed with a 6m 47cm long jump and Darren Hammond mixed his 1m 95cm High Jump victory with a 6m 06cm long jump. Both Chris Rushton (5m 85cm) and Kelly Chadwick ( 4m 70cm) enjoyed pbs. The Shot saw Joshua Booth (U/17) 10m 29cms, Lydia Randles (8m 38cm) and Amy Williams (U/15) 8m 58cm all performing well.
