Toby Jones who competes for the under 13’s has had an amazing summer – a real inspiration. Here is a report from his mum.
In the holidays Toby had entered a couple of open competitions and he’s been at it again over the past couple of weeks. We could probably write a whole page on his achievements but to highlight:
Oxford City AC Open Graded Meeting 25th June – 1st 75m hurdles, 1st Shot put
Avon AA Open Meeting 22nd July – 1st shot put, 2nd Javelin, 3rd Long Jump
City of Newport Track Festival 7th September – 1st (heat 1) 100m, 1st 75m hurdles, 1st (heat 2) 200m (no finals run)
Telford Games 13th September – Gold medals in 100m, 200m and Javelin (including a personal best for javelin putting him 13th in the UK and first in the West Midlands)
Swansea Junior Games 14th September – Gold medal in 75m hurdles (including a personal best putting him 12th in the UK, 68th in the “all time list” and first in the West Midlands) and Silver in Shot put.
Lets make this a regular feature. If you have been busy competing outside the club let us know how you got on and we will give you a mention on the website. if you have photos even better.
