Outstanding day for Lincs Throws Academy
Lincs Throws Academy ran the first of three competitions in the winter indoor shot put series at Bourne Leisure Centre on Sunday.
Some outstanding performances were led by newcomer James Dods who is in his first year of the under-20 men’s category.
He recorded a distance of 13.99m but has a lot more to come as he has just converted to the glide from rotation. He will be competing for Peterborough and Nene Valley this year.
Elizabeth Moorehouse threw a respectable 11.50m with her new 4kg weight.
Lawson Capes has now moved up to his first year in the under-13 boys age group and threw a very good 8.53m which places him second in the country already!
All of the athletes are Lincs Academy regulars apart from third-placed John Twiddle.
Result: 1 James Dods U20M (unattached) 13.99, 2 Daniel Brunt 40M (Sheffield) 12.95, 3 John Twiddle 50M (Kingston Upon Hull) 12.94, 4 Christian Archer U20M (Retford) 12.76, 5 Elizabeth Moorehouse U20W (Peterborough & Nene Valley) 11.50, 6 Zack Grinsted U17B (Luton) 11.47, 7 Geoff Grinsted 50M (Luton) 10.27, 8 Nathan Smith U20M (Cleethorpes) 10.07, 9 Tom Smith U20M (Hunts) 9.76, 10 Abigail Sharples U20W (Lincoln) 9.13, 11 Lawson Capes U13B (Peterborough & Nene Valley) 8.53.
