We had six new CBP’s on the opening day and one inaugural CBP in the new event of the under 15 boys 300m.
George Davies of City of York AC threw a massive 58.36m in the under 15 boys javelin to win by over 20 meters and break the previous CBP of 55.96 set by David Parker in 1994. A second javelin CBP went in the under 17 womens event when Natasha Wilson of Carlisle Aspatria threw 45.79m and broke the 1983 CBP of 44.60m set by J Fraser. Sale Harrier Kevin Metzger set a new CBP in the under 15s boys triple jump, his jump of 13.39m erased the 1997 performance of 12.87 set by Chris Dack. Thomas Somers City of York AC ran 20.75 in under 17 mens 200m beating the old CBP set by Gerald Phirie in 2004 by almost a full second. Carlisle Aspatria’s Chelsea Nugent was the second athlete from that club to set a new CBP when she took the under 15s girls 800m in 2.12.67 and in doing so broke one of the oldest CBP’s of 2.14.00 set in 1977 by Louise Parker. The final CBP on day one was set in the inaugural under 15 boys 300m, Ashley Sandall of Nene Valley CBP of 36.81 was set while winning his heat, he won the final in 37.21 by over a second from a strong field which saw the first four athletes go below 39 seconds.
Have seen Tom run a few times this year and if this time is even more outstanding considering he is a first year under 17
if anyone could confirm this or otherwise it would be appreciated
