Roger, 75, showing no signs of rustiness
Less than a month after his 75th birthday, Roger Bruck is already the Southern Counties V75 record holder in both the high jump and long jump.
Bruck began his assault on the record books with a season’s best long jump of 3.55m, competing for Barnet & District in the Southern Counties Veterans League. Bruck followed this up by taking three silver medals in the high jump (1.21m), long jump (3.44m) and relay at the Masters Inter Area competition in Solihull. As a result of these performances, Bruck stands third in the UK V75 high jump rankings and fourth in the V75 long jump rankings.
English Schools’ finalist George Grant, 16, was the youngest pole vault competitor in the Southern Counties Senior Inter Counties match at Mile End. Grant cleared 3.80m for second place in the B event.
Anna Barnett, 15, improved her discus best to 31.70m with a victory in the Blackheath & Bromley Open Meeting. This performance moves her to 37th in the UK Under 17 rankings.
Rachel Ayrton, 14, improved her 800m best to 2:34.4 with a victory in the B race in the Southern Athletics League in Luton.
