County Record for Dulcie at Crawley Open
Written by Melanie Anning   
Sunday, 21 April 2019 16:22

The near perfect weather conditions at the Crawley AC open may well have contributed to one of longest ever javelin throws by an under-13 British athlete.

Dulcie Yelling first broke the county javelin record in 2018, when she threw 37.64m.

At K2 on Easter Saturday, she improved this mark by almost two metres launching her spear out to 39.57m.

Only one under-13 British girl has ever thrown further and that was just last year when Hannah Lewington (Swindon) set the All-Time record of 41.66m.

Breaking this record is certain to be a goal for Yelling for the rest of this season.

Hugh Foord, the Brighton and Hove AC veteran and former International athlete celebrated his 90th birthday today by completing the Hove Parkrun and achieving his aim of breaking the M90-94 course record coming home with a time of 49.13.

A running compatriot of Roger Bannister, Foord was a member of the Great Britain running team in the 1950's, competing in the six-mile event. He represented England at the Commonwealth Games and narrowly missed out on an Olympic place.

Hugh now holds three Hove Parkrun records M90, M85 and M80. the latter being a rather remarkable time of 28:31.

Hugh we bow down to you. Enjoy the rest of your day.
