Ben shines at Charnwood Open Meeting (Wednesday 4th July 2012)
Ben Dijkstra U15b ran a huge personal best performance in the 3000m at the Charnwood Open Meeting with 9.25.21. This terrific performance by the youngster saw him knock 23 seconds from his previous best and place him in 4th on the Power of 10 rankings for his age group.
Not only that but his time is only 8 seconds outside of the club record which is held by Robert Slater and has stood since 1974. If Ben continues in his rich vein of form he should surely reduce this record by the end of the track season - but failing that he still has another year in this age group!
