12th May 2021 - Birmingham Uni and Loughborough Open

17 May 2021

A brilliant Wednesday evening saw athletes competing at the Birmingham Uni Open and Loughborough Open
Alfie Wood opened his 2021 season in the long jump with a leap of 6.41 for 5th overall and 2nd under 20.
Kaitlyn Sheppard then continued her impressive recent form with a personal best in the 1500m of 4:34.22 for 9th. The time ranks Kaitlyn 6th in the UK under 20 rankings in her first year in the age group. 
Jamie Harper has also been in PB form this year so expectations were high when he lined up for his first 800 since 2019. The Harrier ran a strong race to take two seconds off his previous best running 1:55.70 to finish 6th.
Over in Loughborough George Watson made it two pbs in less than a week with 3:51 over 1500m. That makes it three PBs out of three events for Watson in 2020 and he appears to be just getting going!
