Olympic triple jumper Yamile Aldama was the pick of the Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers athletes at the British Athletic European Indoor Trials and UK Championships at the weekend.
Aldama, despite using a shortened run up to protect her hamstring, produced a jump of 13.44m to claim a gold medal at the event.
There were silver medals for Under-23 athlete Allan Smith (2.22m) in the high jump, Allan Scott (7.76) in the 60m hurdles and Under-23 competitor Zane Duquemin (18.50m) in the shot putt, which ranks him number one in his age category in the UK this year.
Melissa Courtney finished third in the 1500m in a personal best 4.17.57, while Zoe Brown produced a season’s best 4.20m in the pole vault. There was a personal best of 7.80m for Dan Bramble in the long jump, which ranks him third in the UK in 2013.
Under-23 athlete Jade Ive claimed a new personal best in the pole vault of 4.05m. It helped her to sixth place overall and her performance puts her third in the UK Under-23 rankings for 2013.
