Sussex athletes scoop up medals at The Crystal Palace

The most outstanding was probably Amber Anning (Brighton & Hove) who in her first ever triple jump competition won the U15 girls' title with a fine championship best performance leap of 11.25m. This jump takes Anning to the number one spot in the UK and 6th on the all time list in that age group. It is also the second best jump by any Sussex woman this year with only Worthing’s Emma Perkins leaping further with 11.39m.

Gold for Connor and Silver for Ferroni at Bedford.

Sussex youngsters got amongst the medals in the England U15 and U17 Track and field championship at Bedford over the weekend with things coming good for Lewes pole vaulter Livvy Connor. After a year when she has shown great promised as an intermediate hurdler but seemed to be just a touch away from the top her form in her number one event although she did take the bronze medal in the English Schools U17 event. At Bedford however she was in great form equalling her personal best of 3.60m to take the gold medal.

Best Ever for Sussex at Inter-counties

Sussex had probably their best ever Inter-Counties result at Bedford over the weekend despite the absence of many of their top athletes. Most counties seemed to suffer, as did Sussex, with many leading athletes choosing to miss this fixture for various reasons. There were four gold medals for Sussex and the women finished a splendid third in Division one while the men were sixth. Scoring 56.5 points, Sussex finished behind the winners Yorkshire, who scored 73.5 points and second placed Essex who totalled 64 points.
