A superb turn out here with some excellent performances. Plenty of personal best and Team Russell records.
Team Russell Records : Will Platts is on fire at the moment and after his super quick time last week over 800m we knew the 600m record would be under threat. Will didn’t disappoint and broke the record which was no means an easy record to break. Teoni Ojibah is starting to runs the times we know she is capable of. After words a few weeks ago about knuckling down and working hard. It is starting to pay of as Teoni broke the Under 17 Ladies 100m record and equalled the 200m record. Much more to come from Teoni this season. Issy Waugh was setting records again this time in the Under 11 Girls 600m where she beat her own record set indoors early this winter.
Personal Best : Rebecca Evans was racing for the first time in the Under 13 Girls 800m and set a new personal best and just missed out on making Team Russell top 10 rankings of all time. Bobbie Waugh had a great day setting a big personal best over 800m to go 6th on the Under 13 Girls ranking list. Bobbie then went on to set another personal best over 200m running in to a headwind so much more to come over this distance. Her time put her 5th on the all time rankings. Polly Platts ran a big personal best in the Under 15 Girls 800m and her time just missed out on making the top 10. Fletch Wild had a very busy day setting 3 personal best in the 80m, Turbo Javelin and 600m. Fletch’s 600m time was a big personal best and put him 3rd on the Team Russell rankings for Under 11 Boys. Elliot English who prefers the longer distances ran very well and set a personal best over 600m taking him to number 8th on the all time rankings. Lucas Ward set two new personal best in the Under 11 Boys 80m and Turbo Javelin. Josh Kynoch set a personal best in the Under 17 men’s 100m and came very close to his best in the Discus.
Well done to Daisy Kriel Parr, (800m) Lily Calvert (100m) and Jamie Littlewood (200m) who all came close to setting personal best in their events.
A great day everyone keep working hard.
