And 1 Championship Best Performance from Toby Conibear in Hammer, throwing 63.60m, breaking the 10 year old championship record! (This throw also beats coach Matt Spicer’s PB by 6cm and knocking Matt down a position on the all time rankings!) Toby now sits at 51 on the all time list and in 3rd place on the 2019 UK rankings.

Dan Brooks won both the Senior 100m and 200m, both with National Standard times - incredible!🔥

Luke Ball comfortably won the Junior boys high jump with a PB of 1.93m, which secures his place at the top of the UK rankings by 9cm and places him 15th on the all time list - and is also a new club record!

Theo Spurrell won the junior boys javelin with an ES throw and huge PB of 46.60m.

Liam broke the U17 pole vault Yate club record with a PB of 3.60m (which he bettered again on Sunday with 3.70m!)

Also, at Millfield, in the Independent and Prep Schools SW Championships, Yate athlete Georges Cooper won a silver medal in the Discus and Shot, and will take part in the national final in July!

So many other fantastic results and PB’s - full results will be on our website as soon as they are confirmed on the Power of 10.

Looks like it’s going to be a wet training night for the athletes as everybody returns to the Jefferies Arena for the first time as a complete club.
Things might also get very wet at the end of the night for a certain person in a certain waterjump 😉
