Young guns impress on the national stage again


With the outdoor track season now under way, Eden Davis, 16, and David Stone, 13, have lost no time in establishing their places near the top of the national rankings.

Herts Phoenix sprinter Davis recorded 10.97 for 100m at the Lee Valley Open Meeting, for third place in the UK U17 list. This followed a 100m victory and 200m second place in the Herts Phoenix Open Graded Meeting.

Middle distance specialist Stone led all the way to claim a clear victory in his 3,000m heat at the Watford Open Graded Meeting. A time of 9:55.73 places him seventh in the UK U15 division, and top amongst those who will still be in the division next year. Having now overcome serious knee problems and cold-weather asthma, his race was ideal preparation for the London Mini-marathon at the end of the month.

Also at the Watford Open Graded Meeting, Jack Bloom, 14, and Judah Yawitch, 12, set 1,500m personal bests of 4:42.32 and 4:55.36 respectively. Lia Radus, 13, recorded 5:05.65 for a solid season opener.

Anna Barnett claimed a discus victory and second place in the shot put at the Tonbridge AC Open Meeting, with marks of 27.23m and 9.40m respectively.

Philip Benson recorded 16:57 for a runaway victory in the Barnstaple 5K Parkrun.
