FORECAST SUMMARY – Southern Women’s League – Andover – 25 July

Early signs showed the possibility of a vortex tornado being created as a direct result of the efforts of Liz Church (Poole AC) and Roz Hutton. Measurements reached an outstanding 26.73m and 25.70m respectively. This regional variation in conditions was almost immediately followed by a slight change in rotational velocity with discus exceeding 20 knots on release. Liz topped the table with Roz bringing in further points with a third place.

Meanwhile on the western periphery, a sandstorm was brewing with light gusts from the Gulf Stream facing the U15G long jumpers. However, Wimborne’s finest battled on - Annabel Brown jumping over 4m and Alex Vaughan-Johncey winning the B string with a PB of 3.89m.

Further points were accumulated in the pole vault, where Trudi continued her nephological studies from an altitude of 3m. Zoe Taylor reaching an altitude of 1.25m in the high jump and Alex Vaughan-Johncey 1.20m reported cloud cover to be minimal.

A warm front was rising from the discus cage once more with the U15G producing good performances. Annabel Brown 18.25m and Hannah Winton 17.86m.

OUTLOOK: Promising

POINTS SCORE: Ascending with minor fluctuations

Next event, 3000m. Chance of precipitation – mounting! The prevailing wind down the back straight did its utmost to hamper the efforts of Lyn Hutchings. Gusts close to 12kmph had been experienced by the young athlete that Lyn shadowed (sheltered behind) for much of the race. Another veritable performance, clocking 12mins 48.2seconds in deteriorating conditions.

Altostratus clouds visible.

The start of Alex Vaughan-Johncey’s 1500m imminent!

PRESSURE: Tolerable

The gun released a torrent of rain which left Alex paddling through a flash flood for most of her race. Adverse conditions did not deter her and she fought her way in to second place.

OVERALL PERFORMANCE: 4th place out of 7 teams.

Thank you to all those who attended.
