Virtually fabulous javelin comp

July 1, 2020

Six of our athletes took part in a virtual javelin competition at Waterhall last month and the results were amazing. Coach Bob Willows was lead club organiser, and with five qualified officials, the distances are bonafide, even if they won’t count!

The socially distanced international competition was organised by the UK Javelin Throw Association and our athletes competed against throwers from across the world.

Each of them collected their javelin after throwing, and England Athletics guidance was fully adhered to. Thanks to the parent/officials and to club veteran Graham Ingram for helping this to happen.
