Records Broken in Wind at Crawley

A strong blustery wind at Crawley dampened the record breaking, and most track times, at the 84th Sussex Schools Track and Field championships on Saturday.

The strong south westerly, which eddied around the finish area played havoc with not only the sprints and straight hurdles but also the pole vault and high jump which are situated at that end of the track.

Despite the conditions five Championship Best Performances were broken, three in the field events and two on the track..
