Club record for Ffion

Thursday 6 April 2017

In her first competition of the year, at the Bath Field Events Fest on Sunday last, 2nd April, Ffion Palmer (17) set a new senior women's record in the Hammer Throw with a distance of 48.92m, improving Beth Sewell's record of 47.82 set in 2010.

Ffion had been hoping for 50m plus so this record is likely to be improved again this year.


Also in Bath, brother Jac opened his season with 61.50m with the senior hammer and Bethan Gammon was close to her best with 44.37m, also in the hammer throw.

Others competing in Bath were Gage Francis (LJ 6.14m & TJ 13.80m); James King (LJ 6.01m & TJ 13.35m); Tom Britt (LJ 5.95m, javelin 39.95m & discus 29.85m).

In the discus, Jay Morse opened his season with 49.09m, Eleni Zembashi with 38.65m and new member Chrystalla Savvide with 32.68m.

Richard Dangerfield threw the javelin 58.04m and Lucy Griffiths put the shot 11.69m
