August 2020 News Reports

04/08/2020  Club Intra-Club Series - Hammer  details
Hunts AC returned to outdoor athletics action for the first time this year. And what a great way to start in this one-event meet with two club record along with a host of personal bests. Tamzin Digpal-Race opened up proceedings in the first round of the hammer throw by improving her personal best by close to 4 metres and adding 1.43m to Mia Fairbrother-Burton's Under 15 Girls record set four years ago. Tamzin's distance of 31.47m places her 5th in the U15G national rankings. After a tentative personal best of 27.83m in the first round, Willow Bedding hurled the hammer out to 32.81m, adding over 6 metres to her 2019 best and also breaking Tamzin's minutes-old U15G club record. Willow went above Tamzin to 4th in the national rankings. Hammer coach Bob Ellingham was in top form as he reached 42.25m to go 2nd in the M55 national rankings. For good measure, Bob also went out to 36.05m using the heavier Senior Men implement (7.26kg vs 6kg). Having been caught in traffic, and literally 90 seconds after arriving with no opportunity for any kind of warm-up or practice throw, Thomas Smith reached 34.31m, an inaugural Under 20 Men's personal best with the 6kg hammer, which he improved to 36.06m in the 5th round. Other personal bests came from Under 13 Boys club record holder Lucca Bussetil (now a first year U15B) with 23.99m, Max Jackson in his first-ever hammer event with 22.45m, Caitlan Burke with 18.99m, improving by 1.46m, and mum Vicky Burke who added 81 cms to her best with 17.78m. Dad Steve Burke, carrying an injury, pronounced himself satisfied as he cleared the 30-metre barrier with 30.09m. Special thanks to officials Charlotte Bruce, Terry Bedding and Carol Darnell who made this competition possible. A great start to this shortened athletics season.
