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.

Medals a plenty for Sussex youngsters

Sussex youngsters scooped up a plethora of medals at the South of England U15 and U17 championships at Lee Valley over the weekend, with some twenty youngsters on the podium and four of them achieving gold.

Conditions were fairly mild for Saturday’s events but Sunday produced a strong head wind for most of the track races.

Highs and Lows for Sussex u13/15 teams as the YDL season ends

There was a mixed bag of results for Sussex teams at the last YDL Lower League fixtures of the season. Unfortunately Chichester Runners will be relegated and Brighton & Hove have a tense wait to see whether they will be promoted following their division win.

The final results are still being scrutinised so some information stated below is subject to change.
