Three multi-events County Champions for WAC 22/23 April 2017

Amy Mercer reports from Somerset


At the weekend Ben Butcher, Curtis Ormerod-Taylor, Robert Hughes and I all went to Millfield for the Somerset and Dorset schools multi-events.  On Saturday the weather was a bit cold but mostly fine, with everyone making a great start on their events.  We watched Ben run a fantastic hurdles race amongst a very strong field of competitors.


Sunday was a different story:  it was windy and freezing all day with quite a lot of rain throughout the day.  Luckily we had seen the weather forecast and dashed off to Clarks Village to buy a tent on Saturday evening.  Not sure shocking pink is everyone's favourite colour for a tent, but at least we'll find it easily round the track.


For me, the javelin was the trickiest event as it was then that the skies opened and it was wet and windy.  The officials took their lives in their hands as we threw our javelins into the wind and waited to see where and which way they would land.


Despite the weather we all made a sterling effort and came out with some great results.  Ben was under 15 boys County Champion, Curtis and I were under 17 County Champions and Robert was the silver medallist for Dorset in his age group.  Overall a great event and a great result for WAC and Dorset.
