Emily Diamond and Lucy Bryan Star

In the U20 200m Emily just got edged out of first place (see photo in Athletics Weekly on page 22) despite running yet another PB of 24.00.

Lucy came home with a gold medal in the U15 PV. Martin Davies reports that Lucy first improved her PB from 3.30 to 3.35, and then took the championship best performance with 3.42. Martin seemed a bit put out that Lucy was now vaulting higher than a well known B&W over 50’s star!

Cameron Walker Sheppard did 4.50 to come 4th in the U20 PV and just missed out on 4.70. According to Martin he seemed pretty pleased. Luke Bailey too just missed out on a medal on count back as he did 3.90 when the competion was won at 4.00. Now thats unlucky.

Ben Coghlan was 6th in the semi-final of the U20 60m recording 7.14 while James Preston was 5th in the U20 Shot Putt with a distance of 14.12m.
