Cardiff, 7 February 2016.

English Triple Jumpers took the honours in the Wales vs. England Under 20 International Match at the weekend:

U20 Women:
1. Laura Zialor (England) 12.31m (PB)
2. Naomi Ogbeta (England) 12.27m
3. Lauryn Davey (Wales) 11.02m
4. Macey Jones (Wales) 11.00m

Equalling her previous PB of 12.12m with her first attempt, Laura trailled recent UK Junior Indoor Record Holder Naomi’s opener of 12.27m for the first 3 rounds. In round 4, though, Laura reached out to 12.28 before adding another PB in the final round to take the honours with 12.31m. In 3rd place Lauryn jumped her season’s best of 11.02m twice during the contest to pip team-mate Macey despite her last round 11.00m leap.

U20 Men:
1. Jude Bright-Davies (England) 14.90m (PB)
2. Dami Famakin (England) 14.67m (PB)
3. Osaze Aghedo (Wales) 14.57m (PB)
4. Thomas Walley (Wales)  13.79m

There was a battle royale in the men’s event as the top 3 British Junior Triple Jumpers produced 2 new PBs each in an enthralling contest. In round 1 Osaze added 9 cm to his previous best with 14.54m. He added another 3 cm in round 2 with a 14.57m leap that was matched by Dami to add 10 cm to his PB. In round 3 Jude took control of the contest with a massive 14.88m that added 26 cm to his previous best. Dami responded with another PB of 14.67m in round 4 but Jude wasn’t finished yet as he produced a 14.90m leap in round 5 to take seal victory.
