Athletics Jumps Festival
Hewitson jumped to the top of the British rankings for under 17 ladies triple
jump to shatter her old personal best of 11.83 metres in a eventful meeting at
the UKA Jumps Festival in Stoke.
now tops the British Rankings with 12.09 metres, but jumped to a huge new
personal best of 12.33 metres, but was declared wind assisted and will not
count. Kayley Acorn From Worthing, In West Sussex who beat Hanna last
week at the British Championships jumped to 12.03 metres, the second longest
in the distance in the UK this year. Yet, Kayley jumped to a distance of
12.37 metres, but that was declared wind assisted (above 3 metres per second),
to push Hanna into second place in the competition. So Hanna was beaten
by 3cms in the competition, but the two longest jumps ever recorded in the UK
by these two athletes do not stand, where Kayley was declared the winner!!!!
opened with 11.95 metres and then completed her 2nd jump with 12.09 metres to
go on to record 3 non jumps, with a final wind assisted effort of 12.33 metres
to put her in second place behind Kayley Acorn`s 12.37 metres.
Coach Neil Templeman was delighted with the competition and claimed it was
even better than the British Championships last week, where these two athletes
are head and shoulders above the rest of the athletes, where they have pushed
each other on throughout the season, with the North of England and South of
England champions battling away!!!
Hanna went on to say that
she really enjoyed the competition today, especially the usual battles with
Kayley, as they have pushed each other out of their comfort zones, where Hanna
said she loves the fact they can be great rivals but also very good friends as
well on the athletics circuit.
