ATHLETICS: Clare hitting new heights at Bath

Posted by Admin On 11:12 AM

DAUNTSEY’S School students Clare Dyer and Nikko Hunt shaped the star performance in the Avon Athletics Network Christmas pole vault and shot putt open meeting at the University of Bath on Sunday, writes Kevin Fahey.

Dyer, who lives in West Lavington, showed her winter training under the knowledgeable eye of coach Charles Preston at Team Bath AC is going really well as she cleared a big personal best of 3.52m to win the U17 women’s pole vault.

The 15-year-old added nine centimeters to her preceding best set only almost three months ago in Carshalton and has now added 0.72m since the end of last season. It combine Dyer’s place at the top of the UK U15 girls’ rankings for 2011.

Dyer’s performance also gave her second place overall in the female opposition with only senior women’s winner Kate Cowley, of Havering, jumping higher with a best of 3.67. “I was expecting to go higher so I was a bit disappointed,” said Dyer.

“I kind of hoped to clear 3.60m and 3.67m would have been nice. I have done those heights in training and now I just have to put that into a opposition. “But I have made a lot of improvement since joining Charles and it has been a really good year.”Dyer and Preston have planned a busy winter with the London Indoor Games, Vault Manchester and the England Athletics Championships all penciled into the schedule when the season cranks up in the New Year.
