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.

Two wins for Sussex at Schools Games

Sussex athletes won two events at the Schools Games at Loughborough over the weekend and we were also rewarded with another Sussex Record.

Racing for the last time, as an U17 in the 300 metres, Brighton & Hove’s Amber Anning steamed clear of the  opposition to win by more than ten metres in 37.79s.

This clocking was not only well inside the Sussex record she had set earlier in the season but was a competition record and also the fourth fastest time ever by a British U17 athlete.
