Senior Jamie Vickery, who has been setting dead lift personal bests in training, added two seasons best when he won his Heat in 7.33 and then won his Heat of the 200m in 22.71 which puts him currently 14th in the National Rankings, was his usual blunt self saying that it was “another 60m, won the race but 7.33 isn’t amazing. As for the 200m…won that heat in 22.71, 0.08 off the overall PB, my fastest 200m opener by a country mile and I didn’t feel like I executed it particularly well. All I can say is bring on next Sunday!”
Also running in the 60m were U17 Cameron Massey finishing 3rd in 7.95 which was a seasons best as was the case with U15 Emily Warren also finishing 3rd in her Heat in 8.45. Ross Liddle tackled the 60m Hurdles for the first timee Indoors and ran well for 2nd place and a time of 8.80 which puts him in 14th spot in the National Rankings – Ross went onto the Long Jump featuring 17 athletes and came 7th with a leap of 5.49 commenting afterwards that “I competed in the 60m hurdles for the first time and my race went fairly smoothly, however the same couldn’t be said for long jump!”
Again in the 200m U20 Jake Almond was tackling the Indoor distance for the first time and placed 3rd with a time of 23.97. U17 Cameron Massey had a good run, setting a new Indoor PB for his 200m with a time of 25.65 coming in 4th, whilst U15 Emily Warren also set an Indoor 200m new PB finishing 2nd in 27.53 which puts her in 18th place in the National Rankings.
