Com­mon­wealth Youth Games, Nas­sau, July 20-23 SAM BEN­NETT and Jack Sum­n­ers se­cured an English one-two at the Com­mon­wealth Youth Games in Nas­sau, Ba­hamas, se­cur­ing gold and sil­ver in the 110m hur­dles.

They clocked 13.71 and 13.85 re­spec­tively, with Den­vaughn Whymns win­ning bronze in front of home fans.

Pippa Ear­ley just missed out on a medal for Eng­land in the 100m hur­dles as she clocked 13.72 for fourth in a race won by Ja­maica’s Shanette Al­li­son in 13.26.

Also for Eng­land, Alex Bot­ter­ill led home team-mate Josh Allen as they claimed gold and bronze in the 800m, with re­spec­tive times of 1:52.22 and 1:53.09, as Jer­sey’s Wil­liam Brown placed sev­enth in 1:57.24.

Anna Burt claimed sil­ver in the girls’ race be­hind win­ner Carly Thomas of Aus­tralia, 2:05.04 to 2:05.31. Burt’s Eng­land team-mate Is­abelle Bof­fey fin­ished fourth in 2:06.67 and Erin Wal­lace was sixth in 2:08.30 af­ter her 1500m vic­tory.

In the longer event, Wal­lace pulled away in the clos­ing stages to win in a PB of 4:16.61, Wal­lace fin­ished ahead of Kenya’s Vi­ola Che­mu­tai, while Eng­land’s Anna Smith was fourth.

“When I crossed the line first, I just couldn’t be­lieve it,” said Wal­lace, who won bronze at last year’s Euro­pean Youth Cham­pi­onships in Ge­or­gia.

“I was so shocked be­cause af­ter 800m the lead­ers were so far ahead and I thought I would never catch them, but with 300m to go I started to think I could prob­a­bly do it.

“I never ex­pected to win. I knew ev­ery­one’s times were re­ally close and I was ex­pect­ing a fast race. It was just go­ing to be a ques­tion of who could hold on the long­est.”

Holly Mills took the long jump ti­tle for Eng­land.

Mills, who had been the Team Eng­land open­ing cer­e­mony flag­bearer, leapt 6.19m in the first round of the long jump com­pe­ti­tion for a mark that couldn’t be bet­tered on an evening when storms dis­rupted the ac­tion at the Thomas Robin­son Sta­dium.

“I can’t put the last few days into words,” said Mills. “First to carry the flag at the open­ing cer­e­mony and now to win gold, it’s been un­be­liev­able.”

Lucy Had­away joined her Eng­land team-mate on the podium af­ter jump­ing 5.90m for bronze.

Guernsey’s Alas­tair Chalmers was among the win­ners on the fi­nal day of the Games as he clocked 51.22 for a Bri­tish un­der-18 record to get 400m hur­dles gold ahead of Eng­land’s Sea­mus Der­byshire.

Aaron Sex­ton of North­ern Ire­land took 200m gold in 21.57, as bronze went to Eng­land’s Chad Miller, while North­ern Ire­land also got gold through Som­mer Lecky with 1.83m in the high jump.

There was a sil­ver in the mixed 4x200m as Miller, Vera Chinedu, Sam Ben­nett and Ge­orgina Adam ran 1.31.77 be­hind the win­ning team from the Ba­hamas, with Scot­land fourth.

In the mixed 4x400m an­other sil­ver was claimed by Eng­land as Bot­ter­ill, Am­ber An­ning, Emma Alder­son and Josh Faulds com­bined to clock 3.25.45 be­hind Aus­tralia.

Two more medals for Eng­land were won in the men’s 1500m as Josh Lay (3:49.35) and Luke Duffy (3:49.70) claimed sil­ver and bronze re­spec­tively be­hind win­ner John Mwangi Waweru of Kenya.

Sarah Omoregie im­pressed in the shot put as she broke the Bri­tish age­group record with 16.74m to se­cure sil­ver for Wales be­hind Canada’s Trin­ity Tutti with 17.82m, while her Welsh team-mate James Tom­lin­son also won sil­ver in the dis­cus with 60.11m.

Emma Howe threw 47.04m in the javelin to gain an­other bronze for Eng­land in a com­pe­ti­tion won by Uganda’s Josephine Joyce Lalam with 51.89m. Bethany Moule placed sixth with 43.27m.

There were two golds for Kenya in both 3000m races as Em­mac­u­late Chep­kirui clocked 9:25.20 and Ed­win Ki­plan­gat Bett 8:23.96. Eng­land’s Clau­dia Lance Jones ran 9:58.76 for sev­enth and Scot­land’s Naomi Lang 10:11.34 for 10th, while Adam Scott was fifth in 9:04.69 for Scot­land.

An­ning clocked an im­pres­sive PB of 53.68 to bag bronze in a 400m fi­nal won by Aus­tralia’s Bendere Oboya in 52.69. An­ning’s Eng­land team-mate Alder­son placed sixth in 54.90.

Shel­don No­ble of Antigua & Bar­buda won the long jump by 10 cen­time­tres with 7.64m, as Scot­land’s Alessan­dro Schenini fin­ished fourth.

The Ba­hamas ended their wait for a gold medal as they fin­ished first in the mixed 4x200m on the last day of com­pe­ti­tion. The Ba­hamian quar­tet fin­ished in 1:31.50 to beat Eng­land and Botswana, sil­ver and bronze medal­lists re­spec­tively. Som­mer Lecky clinched the girls’ high jump crown for North­ern Ire­land with a best at­tempt of 1.83m. Aus­tralia ended the ath­let­ics pro­gramme at Ba­hamas 2017 at the top of the medals ta­ble with 17, eight of which were gold. Men: 100: 0.0): 1 A Colthrust (TTO)
