Records tumbled at The Embankment Athletics Arena on Saturday, as athletes from Nene Valley Harriers made hay while the sun shone on the Cambridgeshire Track and Field Championship.

Nene Valley’s Bourne Grammar School girl Flo Brill is an exciting prospect, and the county cross country champion shattered both the club under 13 record and her own PB, which was set the previous weekend, when winning the 1,500m in a time of 4:58.02. This fine run moved Brill up to 6th in the current UK rankings.

Nene Valley collected a huge medal haul and Georgie Ivens and Dave Brown both took gold in the senior 200 and 400m, while under 13 all-rounder Josie Downer won gold in the 100m and long jump as well as 1,500m silver. Freddie Fraser claimed a pair of golds in the under 13 100m and long jump. His 100m time of 12.93 moved Fraser up to seventh in the national rankings.

The Nene Valley throwers were in fine form and Simon Achurch bagged four medals, producing a gold medal winning javelin throw of 43.57m. Achurch collected silver in the discus, shot and hammer. Martin Tinkler won the senior men’s discus and hammer.

The Harrison Brothers were amongst the medals with 12-year-old George winning gold in both the javelin and shot with older brother Kai winning discus gold and shot silver.

The ladies fared just as well, and Nene Valley made it a clean sweep in a closely fought Under 17 shot with Tierney Augustine, Priscilla Dadziea and Lydia Church making it a club 1-2-3. Augustine also won discus gold.
