It was a very special day for Oscar Mytton (South Devon Athletic Club U13s) on the 23rd of July at Newquay and Par AC's pentathlon competition. Over the 5 events across the day, he managed 3 PBs and scored highly in each event to take first place in his age category. Oscar threw a PB of 27.41 in javelin, ran a PB in his hurdles of 15.31s and an 800m PB 2.50. Oscar also recorded a 7.19m shot put and a 3.97 long jump, but Oscar's weekend did not finish there. On Sunday he also competed for Devon at the Southwest Inter Championships, finishing 4th in shot put and whilst not securing a podium finish in the hurdles was close to his PB, a great weekend of athletics from Oscar and we are all rightly proud of your achievements!
Hurdles 15.3 (PB) Javelin 27.41m (PB by 3+ M) Long jump 3.96 Shot 7.19m 800m 2.50.1 (PB)
