Lawson Capes again smashed his shot putt best to move further clear at the top of the UK rankings.

He threw 12.99m which was an improvement of 33cm after competing again at Peterborough where he was keen to improve on his last outing which had been affected by the weather.

Dad and coach Lewis Capes said: “Lawson really got after it and threw a few fouls over 13 metres which is actually great to see as he is really trying to push himself.

“It will not be long before he hits the magic 13m barrier which is rare in his age group and has not been achieved by many over the years.”
