More success for Harmeny Athletes, and a whole host of PBs, last weekend as the East District champs returned to Grangemouth.
Saturday saw Olivia Homan set 2 PBs in the U13 100metres, qualifying in the final and an overall 5th place, missing out on a medal by just 1/5th of a second! Murray Fraser went even closer, getting 4th place in both long jump and shot putt, with an amazing PB of 8.04m. Archie Lynch also competed, finishing in 10th and 9th place respectively. Archie also went on to compete in the 800m, finishing 3rd in his heat, just behind clubmate Nathan Denis, the boys finishing 8th and 9th overall and bagging a PB each in the process.
Sunday saw Murray competing again, this time in the 200m, qualifying for the final, and Charlotte MacPhie running in her first 1500m outdoors and finsihing 5th overall in the U13s. Finlay Ross was oh-so-close to a medal in the high jump, finishing on the same mark of 1.31m as the silver medallist, only being deprived of a medal on countback.
Pride of place goes to Tendai Nyabdaza who, in his first championship race at U15 level, stepped up to the mark and impressively beat some big names to finish in Bronze medal position in yet another PB of 4.38.98.
Superb efforts all round – and the club was recognised for a number of recent successes in the Edinburgh Evening News this week (see picture), and the number of names mentioned proving the strength of the club continues to grow.
