Shot put Gold for Lawson!

The national title caps off a successful indoor season for the PANVAC athlete which included a remarkable throw of 17.03m in a meeting at Loughborough. That was the third longest throw indoors ever by an under 15.

Donovan Capes found himself in a much more competitive under 20s competition where five throwers went over the 15m mark. Capes achieved 5th place with a best throw of 15.31m.

PANVAC also had five hurdlers in action at Sheffield. On her debut appearance at the event Pearl Ford ran a new personal best (PB) of 9.43 when finishing 4th in her heat. Fourteen year old Sienna Slater, who like Ford is in her first year in the under 17 age group, ran a 9.05 PB when finishing 2nd in her heat.

Max Roe in his first appearance as an under 20 at the championships ran a new PB of 8.43 when finishing 5th in his heat.

Katie Marsh ran 9.73 finishing 6th in her under 20 heat, while under 17 Jack Wheatley finished 3rd in his heat with an 8.53 clocking missing out on the final by 0.01 of a second.
