The athlete now studying at the University of Wisconsin was second in a mile race in 4:12.26 - a new record for an MK athlete. A week later at an indoor meeting at Bloomington, Indiana, Jack took eight seconds off the club indoor 3000m record set by Marcin Fudalej in 2011, recording 8:24.00.

Having spent most of 2019 nursing an injury, Tim Penley has started 2020 with a bang, adding 16cms to his Pole Vault personal best, recording 3.76m at an Indoor Meeting at Lee Valley. This adds 41cms to his Club M17 Indoor Record, set early last year.

Brandon Lowe (M17) had a busy weekend with three indoor personal bests at 60m (7.49), 200m (23.49) and 400m (53.44).

Ethan Wiltshire was the most successful local athlete at the South of England Championships held at Lee Valley. He won his heat in the M20 60m with 6.96. Ran a personal best of 6.88 to finish second in his semi-final and then placed 7th in the final(6.98).

In the high jump both Robert Lewis (SM) and Sam Featherstone (M20) cleared 1m85 to finish fifth in their respective age groups.
