Six of the Best as Indoor Records Fall


Byline: BILL MCGUIRK

THE North Eastern Counties Indoor Championships at Gateshead International Stadium managed to beat the weather, with six new championship-best performances a great reward for athletes and organisers.

In the under-13 boys' category, Gateshead's Markhim Lonsdale erased the old figures in the long jump by soaring out to 4.77m which bettered Craig Fiddess' (Blaydon) 2002 record of 4.54m.

The only record to fall in the senior men's group came in the triple jump when Middlesbrough/Mandale's Ade Babatunde had a best effort of 15.27m, bettering his own record of 14.35m which he set last year. Emma Johnson was in record-breaking form in the under-13 girls' age group. The Jarrow and Hebburn athlete cleared 1.40m in the high jump, a 4cm improvement on her own club-mate Alex Bainbridge's record set in the championships 12 months ago.

To show her all-round talent, Emma went on to lift the gold medal in the long jump.

Teessider Rachel Highfield lined up in the under-15 girls' 60m, and in the heats ran 8.01secs, which was inside the old record of 8.10 credited to four athletes.

However, in the final, Rachel, of Middlesbrough Mandale, ran even faster to win the gold medal in a time of 7.99, which, incidentally, was the quickest of any of the female athletes, including seniors, on the day.

Tyne Breen had no difficulty in retaining her under-20 women's shot title and in doing so erased her cousin - and Blaydon team-mate - Lianne Tucker's figures from the record books.

Lianne's effort of 11.72m had stood since 2006, but Tyne added another 13cm as she out-threw her own age group as well as the seniors.

The final record to fall in a wellorganised two-day championship came in the wheelchair 60m where Ian Thompson once again got the better of his wife Tanni to repeat his victory of last year in a new pb of 13.13secs.

As well as the record-breakers, there were many other notable performances, including a hurdles/sprint double by Gateshead's Miles McGrady in the under-13 boys' section, while Scott Hall, also of Gateshead, won both the long jump and triple jump at under-17 level.

With awards for the best male and female performances of the day on offer from Start Fitness, it wasn't surprising that Ade Babatunde and Tyne Breen lifted the field prizes and Kilty and Highfield were nominated best sprinters. …
