A Swindon Harriers athlete came home with two medals in the field events at the Bracknell Open as the early season events got underway.

Lucy Bull came home with a gold medal in the javelin and a silver medal in the discus for the under-15s age category.

She threw a personal best distance of 34.49 metres to win the javelin, going better than the 33.69 metres she had managed at Birmingham University at the beginning of the month.

Newcomer Oshotare Kadiro soared to 6.33m to win the under-17 men’s long jump and leap straight to the top spot in the South West Rankings. Also winning his heat of the 100 metres in 11.47 seconds.

There was more success from the Harriers hammer throwers as Archie Kinneir launched his 5kg hammer 47.52 metres, just shy of his February personal best of 48.28, to win the under-17 men’s discipline.

Holly Scott matched that in the women’s under-17s throwing 47.58 metres and then suffering a narrow foul with an even bigger throw close to her lifetime best as she stepped out of the throwing circle.

Then in the under-15s age group, Lottie Harding threw a personal best of 33.70 metres for victory and also ran the 100 metres.

There were also plenty of promising performances at the event in the middle-distance running with Charissa Griffiths-Clack continuing the good form she has shown over the winter cross-country season to clock a personal of 4:10.01 for second in the under-13s 1200 metres.

There were also good times from Pippa Wall, Tamiah Roswell, Amelie Dodgson and Mistral Lyons in the under-13s track events.

Alex Leak also ran strongly to record a personal best of 2:12.31 for second place in the under-15s 800m.

The Hogan brothers had a busy day with Oakley enjoying a personal best in the under-15s discus and a season’s best in the high jump and Archie claiming personal best in both the under-13s high jump and discus events.

In her first outdoors competition of the year, Abigail Hackley scorched to a personal best of 26.76 in the 200 metres at the Yeovil Spring Open, breaking 27 seconds for the first time. Hackley also won her heat of the 400 metres in a time of 62.02.
