Final long and triple jump open meet. Knockando -27/08/2017

Georgie Newlands, Kyle Wilkinson, David Scott (Forres), William Hodi (Nairn), Katie Walker, Archie Bain, Hannah Wallace (Cumbernauld), Scott Hamilton (Elgin)

8 athletes representing 5 clubs participated at the last of the Knockando open jumps meets for this season.

We saved the best till last with Archie Bain gaining 4 PB out of 6 jumps finishing with 3.34m.

Georgie Newlands U15g had to battle with Cumbernauld’s Hannah Wallace, who proved just a little bit stronger.

The U15 boys with Kyle Wilkinson (MRR), David Scott (Forres) and William Hodi (Nairn) had a good long jump competition but an even better triple jump. Kyle Wilkinson has never competed at TJ but was persuaded to give it a try competing against the Scottish ranked #4 and #7.

Kyle’s second jump took him to #1 in the TJ U15b rankings and needless to say a new MRR club record.

Archie, Romilly Cruickshank, Katie Walker, Kyle Wilkinson and William Hodi took the medals for most improved PB over the series.

Our meets series has attracted top seeded athletes in different age groups in both long and triple jump. We look forward to next season and more great competitions.

Our thanks to the officials, without whom these meets could not take place.
