Day two of the England Athletics Senior, AAA and UK CAU Championships in Manchester saw some intense competition, plenty of upset and a string of PBs.
A great long jump competition saw seven men go beyond seven metres in the windy conditions, led by under-23 champ Reynold Barigo’s wind-aided 7.87m.
European Championships-bound British champion Naomi Ogbeta of Trafford also went further than ever before with a windy 14.15m in the triple jump, one of the furthest ever marks by a Briton.
George Armstrong, also the under-23 champ, hauled the discus out to a massive PB of 59.72m, adding more than two metres to his previous best, while on the track Kimbely Baptiste added the 200m title to the 100m she won on Saturday – a nice 11.35/23.40 double. Edmond Amaning won a superb men’s 200m in 20.44w from Antonio Infantino and Saturday’s 100m winner Andrew Robertson.
