SALISBURY has a new national age group champion after Molly Hole cleared a height of 1.65m (appx' 5ft 5ins) to win her event at the England Athletics finals at Bedford by 4cms to take this year’s gold medal title.

Salisbury Athletics and Running Club's 14-year-old rising star achieved UK number one status in her age category some months ago, but this result crowns a magnificent season and further strengthens her reputation in the sport at national level.

At the same venue, Ottilie Knight took a great silver in the under 17s javelin, hitting a personal best distance of 41.8m (app'x 137ft).

Ruth Thom was also in winning mode, her success coming in the sun-baked East Farm half-marathon over the country near Blandford Forum. With a run of 1:49.47 she was more than ten minutes clear of her nearest challenger.

Other Salisbury finishers were Peter Manning in 2:16.33, Elly Mills 3:19.58, Jeanette Hardiman and Kathryn Dreyer 3:25.45 and Marie Manning 4:21.35.

Meanwhile, in the sweltering marathon event, James Mills took a good third place with 3:59.18, with equally strong runs from Liz Roberts, 4:44.17, and Jef Hutchby, 4:48.51.
