Two Silvers and Bronzes for Sussex at Bedford

There were three medals but no golds for Sussex athletes at the England U15 and U17 championships at Bedford with the Sunday competitors enjoying almost continuous rain and wind.

Lizzie Korczak (Brighton & Hove), who has beaten the Sussex U17 javelin record several times this year, suffered what I believe was her first defeat of the season, in this age group, throwing 42.57m to take the silver medal in difficult conditions. Ironically she was beaten in the English championships by Scottish thrower Keira Wadddell, who is a year older, with 46.41m.

Record breaking International Win for Korczak

Her international debut resulted in another county record for Brighton's Lizzie Korczak, who has made something of a habit of improving her own previous best marks in recent weeks.

This fixture at Grangemouth was a result of Korkzac's javelin win at the English Schools Championships a week ago. Both she and ESAA shot silver medallist - Crawley's Millie Noyce - were selected to represent England Schools at the home countries u17 International in Scotland.
