The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport - By BOB FRANK @Et­bobfrank

BOURNE young­ster Robert Mo­han won his eighth suc­ces­sive Lin­colnshire shot putt ti­tle, de­spite in­jury re­strict­ing him to us­ing a stand­ing throw.

A se­ries of mi­nor nig­gles have frus­trated the ju­nior in­ter­na­tional this win­ter but he did not want to miss the cham­pi­onships given his im­pres­sive record and he won with 14.37m.

It proved a great day for the fam­ily as younger brother Adam recorded a shot and dis­cus dou­ble, record­ing a sea­son’s best of 13.42m in the for­mer and a per­sonal best of 39.29 in the lat­ter, while sis­ter Jenna man­aged a sea­son’s best with the javelin.

The cham­pi­onships proved a suc­cess for Nene Val­ley Har­ri­ers who pro­vided 29 cham­pi­ons, 24 sil­ver medal­lists and 29 bronze medal­lists. They also broke four club records, three cham­pi­onship best per­for­mances and recorded 20 per­sonal bests

hose per­for­mances were partly helped by the fact the weather was bet­ter than is has been in re­cent years for these cham­pi­onships. In­deed, it was the first dry Lin­colnshire Cham­pi­onships for sev­eral years although ath­letes did have to cope with a strong head­wind in the home straight on the sec­ond day on Sun­day.

Emily Maltby also broke a jumps records when win­ning the Un­der 20 women’s triple jump with 10.76m. Grace Mullins ran away from a mixed age group field to win the Un­der 20 women’s 3000m in a cham­pi­onship best per­for­mance of 10.30.9.

Alex Hampson was equally im­pres­sive when run­ning away from club­mate Cameron Mar­shall to take the Un­der 15 boys 1500m in a cham­pi­onship best per­for­mance of 4.20.4. Mar­shall had the con­so­la­tion of tak­ing gold in the 3000m.

An­other Nene Val­ley one-two saw Ash­ley San­dall win the Un­der 15 boys from Sam Smith in a cham­pi­onship best per­for­mance of 53.6. San­dall also won the 200m.

Peter­bor­ough Ath­letic Club’s Alexan­der Be­van broke the club record and picked up the gold medal in the Un­der 13 boys 75m hur­dles. Be­van picked up a full set of medals with sil­ver in the 1500m and bronze in the 200m where Nene Val­ley’s Charles Hughes won.

Alex Py­cock was an­other PAC mem­ber to im­press with a sprint dou­ble in the se­nior men’s age group.

NENE Val­ley Har­rier An­drea Jenk­ins added to her im­pres­sive medal haul when win­ning the dis­cus and ham­mer at the Bed­ford­shire Cham­pi­onships at Bed­ford. The Bri­tish Mas­ters cham­pion reached 41.41m with the dis­cus and 50.13m with the ham­mer but had to. set­tle for sec­ond place in the shot with 10.53m.

DEEP­ING hur­dler Julz Adeni­ran fin­ished sixth in his heat of the 110m hur­dles at the Ath­letissma Na­mur Meet­ing in Bel­gium, clock­ing 14.76.
