North Eastern Championships


Emily competed this weekend at Gateshead stadium . First up on Saturday was long jump. This was Emily’s first outdoor long jump competition in over a year and she equalled her outdoor PB at 3.59m ( indoor PB is 3.84m). Room for improvement over the coming months should  see Emily push towards the 4m mark.

Next up was the 200m on Saturday afternoon. Emily along with the other U20 girls had to overcome quite windy conditions and her time was 31.87s.

Sunday. First up was the shot put. And what an amazing start. Emily’s previously PB came at a recent Monkton meeting where she threw just short of 8m (7.99m) and was gutted but she put that behind her with a massive PB in her first throw of 8.37m. She bettered that with 8.41m in the forth round . Really fantastic throws . Emily finished her competition off with a 100m  run in the afternoon coming in with a time of 15.29s. Next up Monkton Grand Prix 24 May.
