There is no stopping Biggleswade AC’s Dan Steel when it comes to combined track and field events. Dan notched up yet another new personal best score, and a new club record, of 4,208pts in the decathlon at the England Athletics U20/ Senior Combined Events Championships at Bedford last weekend. An excellent result and recognition of the huge effort Dan has been putting into his training this year.
At the Bedfordshire County Championships on Saturday 17th May, yet more personal records were smashed with nearly all of team Biggleswade AC notching up at least one new personal, or season’s, best result.
One of the newest members of the team, Valerie Snowball, stormed to a podium finish in the under 13 girls 100m final in a new personal best time of 13.98 secs and one of the club’s longest serving members, Sarah Ridley, had two wins, one in the shot put and the other in the discus.
Keeping it in the family, Sandra and Alex Kingham both managed superb results in the javelin, with Alex winning the under 20 men’s competition and mum, Sandra, coming second in the Senior Women’s.
Callum Dickson-Earle, also won his 100m hurdles race by a whisker and was only a second outside of his best recorded time.
