In the same age group Harry Booker was involved in a very close Discus Final securing a Bronze medal Booker threw 42.16m.

In the Girls Junior age group Sophie Wheadon took part in the Discus to throw 30.04 to finish 5th out of 21.

Stuart Bladon took part in the 100m Hurdles in the Inter Boys age group, he came 5th in his heat in 14.01, but clipped a hurdle hard to slow him down, Bladons time just wasn’t quick enough for the final.
