Success for Edward Gardiner at English Schools Track and Field Championships in Manchester
On Saturday Edward Gardiner was in a relaxed and focused frame of mind meeting the best throwers in England. This was one of the strongest fields of competitors in over 25 years with so many 50m plus throwers.
After 3 throws the top 8 go through to the final and receive a further 3 attempts. Making the cut was always going to be the first challenge as Edward was ranked 9th out of 13 on the day. He built steadily and then unleashed a new PB of 41.95m in round 3 to secure his place in the final.
He finished in 6th place which is an excellent achievement. A very mature performance and a great experience for him.
Edward now has a packed summer of other events including the North of England Championships in Liverpool and English National Championships in Bedford.
