EA SENIOR COMBINED EVENTS CHAMPS
Fechin Mc Cormick
Congratulations to JACK ANDREW who took the England Decathlon title at the weekend at the EA Senior and U20 Outdoor Combined Events Championships in Bedford. This was his first decathlon for 2015 and though competing against thirty-four athletes, he was the only entrant with a declared PB of over 7000 points. He’d been out of medal contention throughout the weekend but continued working up the rankings and opened his chances with a good javelin of 44.54m. However, he was still over 300 points behind the leader but ran a blistering 1500m in 4.22 to score 794 points and take the gold medal by just 12 points with a grand total of 6932 points.
The Championship this year incorporated the BUCS, Midlands, Northern Championships and the Welsh Championships and also an U18 competitive opportunity with adjusted implement / hurdle specifications for international selection qualifiers. J’NAE WARD did really well in this section finishing a superb 3rd .
