It was a successful day in the field events on Saturday at The Eastern AA Outdoor track and field Championships at Cambridge, especially in the sand pit with three medals for as many Ryston athletes in the long jump.

Liam Clare took the gold medal in the U20M with 5.89m, Freya Knight took silver in the U17W with 4.84m, and Lauren Moyse also took silver in the senior women’s with a leap of 5.26m.

Moyse followed this up with 1.55m for gold in the high jump while Knight also ran a PB in the 80m hurdles with a time of 13.60 secs.

Miles Hovell did well in the three throwing events he took part in, taking silver in all three.

He exceeded 40 metres for the first time in the javelin, throwing 40.08m and also threw 32.28m in the discus and 10.41m in the shot.

Gareth Hunt won the men’s high jump, equalling his season’s best of 1.70m.

Meanwhile, over in Norwich, Ryston had two junior athletes taking part in the Anglian Schools Multi-Event Championships.

Charley Wheatley and Abigail Bransgrove both competed in the under 15 girls’ pentathlon.

Charley scored 1843, which included PBs in the 75m hurdles (14.8 secs), shot (6.05m) and long jump (4.58m), while Bransgrove, who was competing as a guest, scored 1559 which included PBs in the shot (5.05m), high jump (1.35m) and long jump (3.75m), despite her having fallen heavily in her hurdles event.

Last, but by no means least, Becky Taylor was in the Cotswolds to do the double marathon at Race to the Tower, 52.4 miles with 8000ft of elevation, which she completed in 10 hours 55 minutes, for 10th woman and 37th overall out of 500 finishers in the non-stop race which saw a high percentage of competitors failing to finish.
