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.

Wins for Sussex Clubs and many promising performances as YDL 2018 kicks off

Bathed in glorious sunshine, the county's youngest athletes travelled across the South East for the opening round of this season’s Youth Development League (U13/U15). In the near perfect weather conditions both Brighton & Hove AC and Horsham Blue Stars were in winning form.

With a local match hosted by Lewes AC, Brighton led from start to finish and ended 135 points clear of second placed Medway & Maidstone, scoring 595 points to 459.5. Lewes came fourth with 426.5.
