West Norfolk athletes deliver some solid performances
There were some solid performances put in once again by West Norfolk athletes last weekend.
This was at the second in a series of open meetings put on by Athletics Norfolk at the UEA Norwich since returning to the sport following lockdown.
Due to Covid restrictions being in place the number of events were limited and athlete numbers and spectators under strict controls, but this did not take away from the performances.
Events on show were 200m, hurdles events, 300/400m and 3000m on the track.
In the field, it was hammer, javelin and long jump across all the age groups.
West Norfolk AC senior woman, Micheala Raine boasted a first place in a maximum field of five in the 200m in 28.4 sec.
Christian Tansey was in good form in the long jump, winning with a personal best leap of 5.65m and a great third place run in the 200m in 24.8 sec.
U20’s hammer thrower Lucy Koenigsberger had a good season opener with a 41.32m throw and a second place.
There was a strong second spot for West Norfolk U20 men’s newcomer Marcus Holt in the 400m with 55.3 seconds.
Holt joined the club earlier this year as a budding decathlete and aims to study, train and compete in the in the United States next year.
Under-13 boys are once again stepping up to the plate and showing their dedication.
Charlie Broad and Marcus Wood were first and second respectively in the long jump, both with personal best performances.
Broad went over 4m for the first time in competition (4.01m) and Wood jumping 3.63m.
Kai Peggs had two first places in age group in the 200m, 31.2sec and in the 75m hurdles in 16.3sec, both personal bests.
More events are planned to follow over the next few weeks hopefully with some more great performances involving West Norfolk athletes.
The club would like to thank all athletes, volunteers and parents for their ongoing support.
