MINOR ATHLETES GATESHEAD STADIUM 22nd MAY Grand Prix 2

Another Sunday morning early start for three of Birtley’s minor athletes. Conditions were best described as blustery and sunny at times with a strong wind blowing all morning making events difficult for all of the athletes. First it was over to the long jump where Sophie Ward took top honours for Birtley with a new PB. Macey Bradshaw also set a PB with a much improved jump. Finally Lea Brown jumped very well in her first attempt at the event. No rest and straight onto the 75 metres sprint where all three girls ran well in a strong field. The most eventfull event of the day which as usual did not go without problems – I wish the rules were made clear from the start as to how to throw the “howler” so that no one could complain, however Sophie, Macey and Lea all tried hard and are improving, well done girls. Next came the 600m race which is always ran at a fast pace and despite the conditions all three of our girls achieved PB’s. Well done to all three girls, see you at the next meeting and maybe a few more athletes from Birtley may give it a go. Carole
