Sunshine and More Records on Day Two of The Champs

With the arrival of lovely sunshine on the Sunday of the Sussex Track and Field Championships, came the tumbling of more Championship Best Performances.

The calm and warm conditions on the second day were a huge improvement on the previous afternoon’s rain at the K2 Leisure Centre, in Crawley.

On her home track Crawley AC's Natasha Purchas got the ball rolling in the U20s, breaking Livvy Connor’s two-year record in the Pole Vault with a soaring 3.75m. It is the second year in a row Purchas has broken a record after taking the title in the U17 age category in 2017.

Baubles for Sussex Athletes at Lee Valley

Sussex athletes scooped up four gold medals in the SEAA Senior and U20 Indoor championships at Lee Valley over the weekend plus Crawley’s Surrey sprinter Nicolas Baker who won the senior 200 metres in 21.78s.

Elise Lovell (Havant) was the only Sussex senior winner with a splendid personal best of 6.08m in the long jump, a distance that would have been a new Sussex record had it been achieved outdoors.

Schools Inter-Counties -UPDATE

Despite all the travails that hit the Sussex Schools team at Basingstoke on Saturday there were many fine performances by Sussex athletes and several managed to achieve the standards that they had been chasing.

In the Intermediate (U17) boys age group Bailey Wright, who has been carrying all before him in the sprints in Sussex this season was an impressive winner with a personal best of 10.84s while the ever determined Joe Smith battled his way to an impressive victory in the 1500 metres in 4:02.23s with Will Broom not far away in fourth place in 4:07.16s.
