Another enormously-enjoyable non-stop decathlon-esqe afternoon from Bilen Ahmet inspired the 5-man team(an M45,an M40,2 Sen & an U17) to a very creditable 4th position in the 3rd round match at sunny Crawley.We had no athletes at all in events from 400-5000inc or 'Chase or 4x4,but a special recipe of Mike May,Bilen Ahmet,Jason Bernard & Patrick Hillyer did win the 4x100.
Match score = HollandS/RSB 171.5::Havant 139::Fleet&C 136.5::K&P 98::Istead&I 90.5::Bracknell 40.5.Overall,we are 8th of the 11 teams therein.
Eleven of the event results feature the indefatigable Bilen - all 8 in the field,plus both hurdles and the relay - a total of 47pts of the 98 we scored. He won the 110H(18.7)& the B Triple(11.71),and amassed 5 2nd places - other marks included 36.44JT/28.99DT/2.60PV. He was supported in all 4 throws by M40 Rob Lowe,whose efforts included 27.37JT & 21.29DT. In the jumps,U17 Patrick Hillyer took 2nd in the Triple(12.01) & the B 100(12.3),whilst Jason-Louis Bernard totally outstripped the 100/200 opposition with an 11.4PB/23.2 double. Mike May(M45)equalled his best 200 mark in club colours this year with 28.0.The day culminated,for K&P,with that speedy 4x1 success in 48.9. A jolly time was had by all!
