Bedford International Games
The annual Bedford International Games on Sunday 15th August was the last chance for athletes to qualify for this Autumn's Commonwealth Games. Two club throwers in particular will be particularly happy with their performances.Mike Floyd won the Hammer with a personal best throw of 70m45 to record his second qualifying distance in successive weeks, thereby satisfying the selection criteria. Fingers must be crossed for Floydy that he gets the call on Wednesday or Thursday.
Laura Whittingham also threw a huge personal best of 60m68 in the javelin, which was more than 2.5m further than her previous best, which was also set this season. She too will be eying the Commonwealth selection meeting with interest. Other Sale Harriers at the meeting included Rebecca Peake, who won the Shot,
Emma Lyons, who won the Pole Vault,
Sara McGreavy, who was second in the 100mH,
Rosie Semenytsh, who was 4th in the Javelin,
Abigail Irozuru (Long Jump) and Danielle Rooney (100mH).
For the men, Ryan Oswald (100m and 200m), Chris Craig (200m), Rhys Smith (400m), Debo Ademuyewo (400m) and a returning Rob Mitchell (High Jump) competed.
