ATHLETICS: Capes brothers shatter records
Two of Lincolnshire’s leading young athletes were in record breaking form when they competed at the weekend.
Donovan Capes, who began the year at the top of UK’s under-15 shot put rankings, has smashed the old U15 Lincolnshire championship record in the shot by over a metre at the Lincolnshire Track and Field Championships.
The Bourne Academy student set a new mark of 14.42m, which was a phenomenal performance from the young athlete who had only been training for three weeks after suffering a badly broken finger in January, which meant he had to miss the whole of the indoor season.
