In the inter-county match at Hendon on Sunday Abby Beswick produced a couple of second-place performances for Sussex. In her heat of the 200 metres she was a comfortable second in 25.57 seconds. In the final later in the afternoon she again came second, this time in 25.37 seconds. The girl who beat her in the heat also won the final. In between these events she earned a second place in the long jump with 5.43 metres – a distance she jumped twice.
Henry Aronson found himself having to run two 800 metre races on the day for Sussex. In his heat he came up with a new pb when he came second in 2 minutes 6.48 seconds but couldn’t quite re-produce that later in the final. In fact most of the runners were slower than in their heat with Henry running 2 minutes 10.30 seconds. Running 2 lots of 800 metres in one day is very hard work.
Very well done to both Henry and Abby.
