IPs U16/U18 2022 - week 6
19/02/2022 Open Meet Tauranga
It was an impressive showing from a smaller group of 14 athletes on the Saturday. Finally, only light wind and whilst hot, the temperature was more moderate! Some exceptionally good performances, resulting in 9 PBs.
For the sprinters, leading the way was Madison Rattray with a double PB in the 200m and 400m, 27.4s and 62.18s respectively. Teeka Randell with a solid PB in the 200m (25.38s) and very near her 100m PB.
Holly Fausett and Saskia Rhind both set new 80m Hurdles PB’s of 12.81s and 13.13s respectively. Likewise, Amelie Wood also setting an 80m Hurdles PB of 13.08s, improving again on her time set in the Auckland champs the previous weekend. Mia Poutawera set a new blistering 200m PB of 26.68s.
The middle-distance athletes were not left out, Fletcher van Heuven ran a good 800m PB (2:05.22) adding to his PB list, and Charo Heijnen also ran a new 800m PB of 2:25.42.
It was impressive for the hurdlers to compete against World Junior’s silver medallist Joshua Hawkins from Auckland and the sprinters to compete against Paralympian’s Mitch Joynt and Anna Steven. They gave everyone a little hurry up in their events.
