Five new club records have been added up to the end of August 2014. New member Lily-May Pursey broke Kerry Murch’s 7 year old record in the U13 girls shot with a throw of 9.31m.
Three male sprint records were broken or equalled. Rico Ewer broke Caleb Downes’ U17M 100m record from last year by just 0.06 seconds to record 10.70w. Tom Jasper smashed the 12 year old U15B 400m record, reducing it from 54.1 to 52.4. Tom now holds both the 300m and 400m record. And young Sachin Thethy equalled the U11B 75m record of 10.9 and now shares it with Timothy Kerr-Chin from 2008.
Finally, well done to Rob Gardner who shaved 0.4 seconds off Jamie Sewell’s old 3000m Steeplechase record from 2008 in the Seniors, reducing it to 10 minutes 06.0 seconds.
