It is hard to believe that it has been 3 years since we last competed at the Southwest Track and Field Championships in Exeter. It is always an excellent occasion when our Wiltshire athletes have this opportunity to compete alongside some of the best young athletes in the country. The excitement of seeing so many enthusiastic and talented young Wiltshire athletes competing after such an unusual and challenging few years was wonderful. This year, as we have come to expect, our athletes did not disappoint.
A huge congratulations to all the Wiltshire athletes that took part in the Championships this year. It was fabulous to see so many PBs, medal winners, County Standards, Entry Standards, National Standards, lessons learnt, and friendships made. A particular congratulations goes to Owen Merrett for breaking the Senior Boys Hammer record set in 1973, with his enormous throw of 66.60m. We hope that all the athletes enjoyed the event and went away feeling proud of their achievements. Your behaviour and organisation were exemplary, and it was a pleasure to work with each and everyone of you. We hope that you will continue to train hard over the coming year so that we can go through all the excitement, challenges and thrills again next year. All the results can be found of the Power of 10 website.
