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.

More CBP's on Day 2 of the Indoor Championships

On this second day of the Sussex Indoor Championships, held with the Surrey event at Sutton, four more Championship Best's were set.

The five recorded yesterday were all by men, but today the women had equal honours with both coming in the under 17 age group. First up was Millie Noyce (Crawley) who shattered the previous shot mark of 11.01 with a put of 12.65. In the hurdles her club-mate Katie Bristowe took 3 tenths off the old record when she crossed the line in 8.99 seconds.

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.
