Another great turn out here with lots of personal best and a few Team Russell records. This was a difficult choice for me to choose the performance of the day. I couldn’t choose from Zak Ferguson’s superb 800m time, Will Platts blistering 600m and George Conelly’s big Long Jump.
Team Russell Records :
George Connelly was in fine form yet again breaking his own 80m record and Long Jump which is getting very close to that 4 metre barrier which is amazing for an Under 11. Will Platts knocked over 2 seconds of his personal best and Team Russell record to run a blistering 1.48. Again very very impressive for a Under 11. Excellent boys keep up the great work.
Personal Best :
Zak Ferguson is getting closing to that very impressive Team Russell record set by Julian Slater in 2012. A few more races should see Zak run under the 2.20 mark and challenge the record which is one of the hardest records to break. Adam Hirst is getting back to his best and after setting a big 1500m personal best yesterday went on to run an 800m personal best today. Elliot Reed ran a very quick 600m and if it wasn’t for Will would have been a Team Russell record. Elliot’s time now ranks him 2nd all time. Elliots English set a personal best by 2 seconds in the same event and is getting closer to getting under that 2 mins barrier. Lucas Ward ran very well in the 80m to come away with a personal best. Lily Calvert set a big personal best in the 200m (0.4 seconds) which now ranks Lily 4th on the all time lists.
A big well done also to Teoni Ojibah, Annie Naylor and Polly Platts who all came close to their personal best. A great day everyone with some outstanding individual performances. Keep up the hard work …..
