Although it was a chilly start the sun was shining at Shearwater for this popular meeting and it was warming up nicely. Only 9 K&P athletes got their entries in before the deadline of mid August, they all performed well and the day produced 9 medals!
U13 boys Luca Di Libaro bagged 2 medals, just missing out on a third, Gold in the long jump 4.43, silver in the shot with a new pb 8.87 and 4th in the discus, shot and discus were both at 10am, so this would not have been easy! Olly Wilson ran a great 1500m with 4.48.38 for gold.
U15 boy Benjamin Collier got gold in the 800m with pb 2.19.37. Jack Westley bronze with a 3 m pole vault equalling his pb.
U15 girls Amelia Bell bronze in the 300m and 3rd in her 200m heat which was the fastest heat, Amelia qualified for final but felt unwell so withdrew, Annabel Hobday silver in the 800m and Lucy Tunnacliffe preparing for the Surrey combined events and with a small foot injury 3rd in her 800m heat and 1.35 in high jump and 4.26 in long jump.
Finally our U17s, Jessica Westley 5th with 2.10 in pole vault, Rebecca Keddie silver in 800m 2.32.17 and Rhianna Reynolds gold in long jump 5.04.
