March Trials - Field only !
TORRENTIAL RAIN !
After hours and hours of rain during the past week, much of the track surface was under water this morning. So we decided to have only Field events in Trials 3. We blame an area of low pressure somewhere south of us which has been causing the atrocious weather !
THEN IT WAS FOOTBALL !
To add to our problems, a misunderstanding (?) about bookings meant that people tried to start a Football game while the athletes were still using the pitch for their Long Jump run-up ! After hurried negotiations, we completed our competition.
STARS PREVAIL !
In the MShot, Takakia managed 12.00m.in his first competition of the year. Buraieta in the MLong Jump produced two attempts over 6.00m. with a best today of 6.23m. The good thing was the group of less experienced athletes who attempted both Shot and Discus. They will learn from this competition.
