Harriers star at Liverpool Throws and Jumps.

Preston Harriers put in some outstanding performances in the sunshine against tough competition as they shone at Wavertree during the Liverpool Throws and Jumps competition. Walking away with 5 gold and 3 bronze medals, the throwers and jumpers from Preston proved that they were real stars.

In a day where harriers athletes gained 5 new personal best performances, outstanding performances came from Corey Middleton whose 34.00 meter throw earned him a massive 7.07 meter personal best at javelin and an equally impressive 8.73 meter throw which gained him a 73 cm personal best at shot put and walked away with a gold for long jump and equalled his best in high jump.

Equally impressive were Willson Parnell who overcame an injury hit run-up to his first competition of the year to grab gold with a new PB of 33.10 meters, a 1.69 meter improvement, Ben Roberts who continues his fantastic progress to take gold in shot and discus with a shot PB of 12.30 (12cm improvement) and a discus PB of 36.91 (80 cm improvement). In hammer, Ed Jeans continued to show his class easily taking the gold with a throw of 60.29.

Bronze medals went to Sophia Ince who gave a polished performance in the face of tough competition in javelin, George Lowe in javelin and Corey Middleton in shot.
