Sainsbury's School Games, Manchester - Friday 5th September 2014
Ed smashes through the 60 metre barrier
Preston Harriers’ 15 year old hammer thrower Edward Jeans smashed his lifetime best by nearly 3 metres to record a distance of 61.62 metres and a silver medal while representing the North West in the Sainsbury's School Games at Manchester catapulting him to 5th best in the country. In his series of 6 throws, he threw 3 times over 61metres, this being the first time he has thrown over 60 metres in his life. Harriers’ talented pole vaulter Jessica Swannack also had a brilliant day, and equalled her personal best to win a bronze medal with a height of 3.50 metres only failing to win the silver on countback. Chris Durney (the third Harrier in the North West team) just missed a medal, finishing a close 4th in the 1500 metres with a time of 4:08.35, his 4th quickest time for the distance.

However, Rob Affleck was beaten into 2nd place by Rob Danson of Wesham – both having good runs and well clear of third place. Harriers posted six runners in the top fifteen places. The ladies were third on the night, and 3rd overall for the season. Harriers retained the Veterans award too, with another six wins from six.
