Yesterday we competed at the Kettering Open Meeting for the first time and thankfully, this time round the weather was brighter and the wind was kinder than last week at the Rugby Spring Medal. It turned out to be an awesome day as we came away with five PB’s. Kae got a new personal best in 75m and 150m, and wasn’t far away from a PB in Long Jump. Kaiyuki got personal bests in 75m, 150m, and Long Jump (with a fantastic 4.15 metre jump).
It was lovely to see all the different elements of training come together and work on the day. There is always room for improvement, especially in our technique, but for now we’re just over the moon and relaxing. Not only was it a great day for us, but also for our team mates who put in great performances – with many of them getting PB’s also.
