Ath­letes run up some im­pres­sive per­sonal bests

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE gust­ing winds at the show­grounds may have kept cen­tre records at bay, how­ever the 44 ath­letes in at­ten­dance still man­aged to set 36 per­sonal bests on Fri­day, with some mas­sive PBs achieved by in­di­vid­u­als.

Top achiev­ers for the week with three per­sonal bests each were U6 Charli Mur­ton, U13 Jackie Fresh­wa­ter and U15 Joseph Thur­low.

Mur­ton beat her PBs in 70m and 200m track events by 1.1 sec­onds and 0.1 sec­onds re­spec­tively, as well as huge 26cm per­sonal best on her sec­ond at­tempt throw in shot put.

Fresh­wa­ter man­aged a 0.2 sec­ond PB in her 100m track and 16cm PB in dis­cus. But it was the 45.3 sec­ond track im­prove­ment in her 1500m that made her one of the top achiev­ers for the night.

Thur­low made im­mense im­prove­ment on his 1500m PB time, beat­ing it by 27.2 sec­onds. His 4cm long jump im­prove­ment and 13cm shot put throw rounded off his three per­sonal bests for the evening.

Other in­di­vid­ual per­sonal best achieve­ments wor­thy of men­tion in­clude: U6 Clancy, 48cm PB in shot put; U8 Frankie, 8.6 sec­ond im­prove­ment in 200m track; U8 Daniel, 69cm PB in vor­tex; U8 Tessie, 45cm long jump PB; U9 Lily, 89cm dis­cus im­prove­ment; U10 Boyd, 1.45m PB in turbo jav; U11 Molly, 24.1 sec­ond im­prove­ment in 1500m; U11 Luke, clos­ing in on the 1500m CR with a 18.1 sec­ond im­prove­ment; U13 Kaylee, 2.51m PB in javelin; and U15 Joshua, slic­ing 28 sec­onds from his 1500m time.

This Fri­day will be the fi­nal club night for 2015, with a sausage siz­zle be­ing held on the night.

The com­mit­tee wishes all ath­letes and their fam­i­lies, es­pe­cially our Tiny Tots McKen­zie H, Jake, Piper, Char­lie G, Ni­cholas, Char­lie R Vin­nie, Brax­ton and Macken­zie M, a safe and re­lax­ing break.

We do rec­om­mend some phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in the hol­i­days to en­sure on­go­ing per­sonal bests and Cen­tre Records are able to be achieved when we re­turn on Jan­uary 15. Check Face­book for when Tues­day Train­ing ses­sions recom­mence.

Merry Christ­mas to one and all.
