CAMPBELL’S THE MAN

HAMMER THROWER REVISES PAUL HEAD’S 24-YEAR-OLD CHAMPIONSHIP MARK

ENTRIES were low, not helped by a fixture clash with the county schools championships.

A few athletes did both. Crawley’s Joe Smith won the Sussex Schools Junior boys 1500m in 4:18.37 and then followed up here with a 3000m under-15 title. His 9:15.74 took him to second on the national rankings for the year for his age group.

Elsewhere the best performances came in the field, with Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow’s hammer throwers leading the way. One of the oldest championship records, that of Paul Head in the senior men’s event, dating from 1992, fell to Taylor Campbell.

His PB 71.39m, a revision by one centimetre, was the only championship record of the meeting and brought him a £100 prize.

Amy Herrington: overcame wet circle for PB

Jake Norris (see p36) took the under-20 event with 71.07m to clinch Campbell’s 2015 title. Windsor’s third hammer title went to Amy Herrington, who was given special dispensation by Oxfordshire Schools to miss their championships and won with a 55.40m PB.

Herrington’s win came despite a dispute with officials over the wet state of the circle following the Sunday morning rains. “I asked them to sweep it but they said it could only be done at the start of each round,” she said. “I was throwing last so was at an unfair disadvantage, so I used my towel to dry it.”

Another Windsor thrower in form was senior men’s shot winner Joey Watson, who recorded 16.79m, while Sophie McKinna threw 16.61m to take the women’s equivalent. “I’ve been out with a bit of an injury,” said the 18.41m thrower, before adding of the arena: “The atmosphere was a bit flat.”
