Newport Harriers Masters Perform Well At The British Masters Championships

Updated: Mar 18, 2019

Lets start with the field events, on the Saturday Ian Williams put in 2 great performances in the M40 Javelein and M40 Discus. He threw 27.15 in the Javelin to win silver and 29.52 in the discus to gain Bronze

In the sprints we had Keith Powell up in the 60. He qualified in 3rd place in the heat for the final in 8.5 for a seasons best of 8.5 and then finished 5th in the final with 8.57. Next up was long jump for 4th place and 4.48m. On the Sunday Keith rocked up again for 2.6m in the pole vault and 6th place.

Louise was another athlete that had a busy weekend she was 4th in the W50 60m with a pb of 9.3. She also put in a great performance in the W50 400m coming 5th with a sb of 71.39. She came back on the Sunday for the W50 200m and produced a strong performance with yet another sb of 31.53.

Eleri Jones in her first ever British Champs put in 2 excellent performances. First up the highly competitive W35 60m. Eleri not overwhelmed by the big occasion managed a pb in a straight final with 8.6m and 5th place. On the Sunday she came back to smash her pb to clinch a bronze medal in 29.15.

Stuart Pearce also did the 60m and 200m and managed 2 great performances with 2 sbs, 7.93 in the 60m and 26.37 in the 200m.

Juliet Sidney aka pocket rocket was just pipped on the line in the 60m but gained a pb of 8.59 and silver. 200m not her strongest event but again was pleased with a pb of 28.98 and a bronze medal. The added bonus was to beat her own W50 200m club record. All looking good for Poland and the World Masters Championships in Torun

Last up for the Newport athletes but by no means least Brett Davies in the 800m in a great time of 2.22.37

Well done all some excellent performances from everyone :)

Results - power of 10 -
