Injury ends a promising day
Representing Grimsby Harriers, the Wragby athlete began well by equalling his lifetime best in the high jump with a clearance of 1.55m, coming extremely close to clearing 1.60m, just brushing the bar off with his ankles.
He then moved on to the javelin, throwing a personal best of 29.80m in the first round with the heavier javelin that he now throws in the under 20 age group.
In the second round he unleashed a real beauty of 31.95m which was brilliant.
But disaster struck whilst warming up for the high hurdles, when he strained a thigh muscle and had to pull out of that event and the discus.
This injury will keep him out for a couple of weeks, at least.
