A total of 12 new records are set at the latest Avon Championships
TWELVE new championship records were set in the Avon County Track and Field Championships staged at the Yate arena last weekend.
Arguably the most outstanding display came from 16-year-old Yate & District AC's Rob Phillips, who carved 1.45secs off his personal best in the 400m hurdles with a time of 56.14secs, which lifted him to fifth in the UK Under-17 men's rankings.
Phillips, who is coached by Sandra Woodman, also ran a PB of 50.80secs, his first time under 51 seconds, to finish runner-up in the 400m, an event won by clubmate and training partner Josh Evans.
Just a week after winning a bronze medal in the UK School Games held in the Olympic Stadium in a PB of 49.57secs, the third quickest in the country this year, the 16-year again dipped under 50 seconds with a championship record of 49.98secs. Evans also won the 100m in 11.72secs.

Also in the sprints, 14-year-old Bristol & West athlete Tomas Goodman leapt to fourth in the UK rankings for under-15 boys with a sparkling time of 37.99secs in the 300m, which suggests a fast 400m is within his scope.
Clubmate Kwame Fordwor claimed an impressive victory over GB junior international Leon Reid with the 18-year-old winning the Under-20 men's 100m in a championship record time of 11.20secs. Reid got his revenge in the 200m, in which Fordwor was runner-up in a PB of 22.43secs.
In the middle distances, the top performance came from Lily Owsley with the 17-year-old Bristol & West AC runner – who is also a very good hockey player – stepping onto the track for the first time this year to win in a record time of 2:13.28 thanks in part to good pacemaking assistance by training partner Olivia Sadler. Owsley also won the 400m.
There were also record runs by Yate's Floren Scrafton in the Under-20 women's 1,500m and Team Bath's Craig Bridges in the senior men's 3000m. In the field, Clutton's Amy Woodman won the senior long jump in a record of 6.02m, just below her season's best of 6.05m, while Bristol & West's top class new signing Liam Biddlecombe won the discus with a throw of 48.88m.
Bristol & West AC junior international Lucy Bryan won the pole vault with a leap of 3.83m, but suffered a tweak in her back which means she has had to pull out of the GB Under-20s squad for the Loughborough International tomorrow.
The other records fell to the Team Bath AC pair of Alice Reynolds (Under-15 girls' high jump) and Ellie J Webb (Under-15 girls shot).
