CITY of Salisbury dominated the Wiltshire County Athletics Championships at Tidworth, taking 13 gold medals, 13 silvers and 15 bronze medals.

For good measure, Bea Wood broke the 1,500m under 15s championship record with a run of 4.41.9 minutes while Molly Hole set new figures with a 1.63m high jump.

Skye Allen scored a winning double in the 100 and 200m sprints in 13.2 and 26.93 seconds, respectively while Amelia Watling also looked promising in the under 13s' 100m, winning in 14.4 seconds, and took bronze in the long jump with 14.4m.

Ottilie Knight had a good day winning the under 17s javelin with 37.85m and the triple jump with 9.83m.

In the men’s seniors, Andy Holme won the 3,000m steeplechase with 10:20.5, and Henry Dix won the under 17s' equivalent in 11:48.8. Josh Hole proved unbeatable in the shot with 11.78m.

Junior international Jake Ness made a low-key return from injury with a bronze in the 200m with 23.94 while a huge personal best 2:07.59 from Greg Herring in the under 15s' 800m earned silver.

Meanwhile, on the road, Stuart Holloway continued his fine form with an emphatic win in the Tewkesbury half-marathon, improving his best to a rapid 70.44 minutes - more than four minutes too good for his nearest challenger.

Jon Kershaw also registered a personal best in the Oxford 10k where he clocked 45.16 minutes.

This Sunday (May 21) sees the penultimate fixture in the Hampshire Road Race League series with a 10k at Netley.
