Representing GB in the U20 Combined Events International in Stoke,Dominique Blaize established a superb lead over her teammates and her French & Russian rivals after the 4 events on Day 1. Opening with a PB 100H at 14.50 into a headwind,she cleared a outdoor SB of 1.75 in the HJ,threw an 11.24 SP and ended the day with another PB over 200 in a legal 25.22. She led with 3303,some 200 points ahead of her previous best first day score. On Day 2,she continued with a 5.75w LJ,a near PB JT of 31.87 and completed with a 2.52.49 over 800. These marks kept her well in contention though stronger performances from 3 rivals pushed her back into 4th overall - still an exceptional two-day effort. Her final score of 5024 was a PB by 201 pts and she leapt into 36th place in the AllTime UK U20 lists.(see UKA website - www.ukathletics.net or GBR Athletics site - www.gbrathletics.com/high.htm).
