A great turn out on what was a gorgeous night although the wind readings made it tough for sprinters running in to a stiff headwind. We had 17 people competing with lots of new personal best and three very impressive Team Russell Records.
Team Russell Records :
Will Platts ran a super quick time in the Under 11 Boys 800m going Under 2.30 minutes to beat his own record by over 7 seconds. Will’s time ranks him number 3 on the UK rankings for the year. Issy Waugh also ran brilliantly in the same race to to go close to going under our target time of 2.40 minutes. Issy beat her own Team Russell record and now ranks 5th on the UK rankings. George Connelly also beat his own record in the Under 11 Boys Long Jump. George jumped a very impressive 4.19 metres which ranks him 8th on the UK rankings. Well done three very impressive performances.
Personal Best :
Elliot Reed smashed his personal best in the Under 11 Boys 800 metres. Elliot’s time ranks him 12th on the UK rankings. Fletch Wild went in the same race and again smashed his personal best by two seconds going under 2.40 minutes for the first time. Elliot English using the 800 metres as speed work as he prefers the longer distances ran really well and set a personal best by two seconds and goes 5th on the very impressive Team Russell Rankings. Molly Gray jumped really well in the Under 11 Girls Long Jumping setting a new personal best and going 2nd on the Team Russell Rankings. Victoria West set a new personal best in the Under 20 Ladies 400 metres and goes 4th on the Team Russell Rankings.
