Records Tumble despite the rain on Day one at K2

On a day when the weather switched from dry and pleasant to breezy, wet and cold a quartet of records fell at the Sussex County Track and Field Championships. 

The morning at K2, Crawley started out cloudy but still and just like last year it was the throws rather than the track where the first Championship Best Performances (CBP’s) were recorded.

Medals Galore at the Palace

Sussex athletes scooped a handful of medals in the Southern Counties Track championships at the Crystal Palace over the weekend including three gold medals and a Sussex record in the U20 events.

The record came in the javelin throw where Lewes’s Scot Staples, the talented County champion pulled out a brilliant effort of 59.68m which added just ten centimetres to Worthing’s Simon Kearney’s fifteen year old County record.

The other two titles went to U17 athletes who were competing up an age group.

In the first match, of Division One B, local rivals Portsmouth squeezed the Brighton Club into second place but on Sunday, despite fielding a depleted team the tables were well and truly turned as they romped away to win by more than one hundred points with 513 to Portsmouth’s 408. Southampton scored 381, Winchester 369 and Chichester 352.
