Amber and Ben Strike Gold

There was more glory and medals for Sussex youngsters at the English U15/17 Track and Field championships at Bedford over the weekend including two titles plus three Sussex records.

Again pride of place must go to U17 Worthing thrower Ben Hawkes who retained his unbeaten Hammer record this season with another crushing victory with 71.91m but he also added a silver medal in the discus throw with a personal effort of 52.70m, which is also a new Sussex record. Hawkes very nearly collected another medal in the shot putt placing fourth with 15.24m.

Beth Crocker from Crawley filled sixth place with 3572 points.
