Brilliance at BMCThere were many outstanding performances at the British Milers Club PB Classic at Milton Keynes on Saturday 19th May. It was a cold and dismal evening but this did not deter the athletes who were intent on reducing their personal best performances.
Mari Smith U17 had an outstanding race to reduce her pb to 2.10.02. This was the second time this week that Mari had reduced her 800m pb and not only it has moves her up to joint 6th on the Power of 10 but she has now taken the club age group record from Maxine Newman which was 2.10.7 and had stood since 1987.
Also in the same race was Amy Griffiths whose 2.12.62 knocked 5 seconds off of her pb and moves her to 10th on the Power of 10.
Pascal Bouttier-Butler U15 reduced his 1500m pb by a huge 9 seconds finishing in 4.47.31 and both Ella Shirley U17 and Alice Porter U15 followed suit with 6 seconds from their pb's with 4.52.42 and 5.01.96 respectively.
Jonny Monk U20 again dipped under the 2 minute mark with 1.59.68 which was a few hundredths outside his personal best. So far this season Jonny has consistently finished around the 2 minute mark.
Matt Griffiths U15 relished the 800m in only his second outing to take 5 seconds off of his debut race time with 2.15.57. Not to be outdone by Matt, both Serena Moore U15 2.37.55 and Jordan Waine U13 2.37.01 both reduced their pb's by 5 seconds also.
James Hatton U17 performance of 2.01.26 was a welcome return to form after his recent injury woes.
Alison Curtis U13 had to wait for the last race of the night for her 1500m pb. Having to deal with a lack of light, due to no flood lights, Ali ran well to knock a further 2 seconds off of her pb.
