Lucky Seven for Sussex at Sheffield

Sussex youngsters scooped a brilliant seven medals, including one gold, at the National Indoor Age Groups championships at Sheffield over the weekend.

Pride of place went to Brighton & Hove’s Amber Anning who in her first year in the U20 age group romped away with the 400m title in a new indoor pb of 54.55s which suggests that she looks well in line for another stunning track season.

A set of medals at weekend's National Championships

Thanks very much to Martin Etchells who had a very busy weekend as Meeting Director for the Sussex Indoor championships and then produced reports while I was sans computer for several days.

There were few medals for Sussex athletes at the weekend’s National Indoor championships at Birmingham and the BUCS Championships at Sheffield.

Just one gold medal and that fell to County 400m hurdles record holder Bethany Close who forsook the hurdles and raced to a clear cut 200m victory in 24.35s.

Indoor Championships Update

On further scrutiny of the results from weekend Indoor Championships, another Championship Best has been identified. It came in the last event of the weekend, the Under 17 men's Triple Jump, where Brighton's Louis Goffin exceeded the old record (12.26) in each of his four valid jumps. The first of these was his best at 12.75 - just 1 cm below his pb. That makes 10 new names from the two days of competition to be added to the list of CBP's.
