Kent U13 boys 800m
Young Peter Guy broke Steve Cavey's 10 year old U13
boy 800m record yesterday in the heats of the Kent U13 champs at Norman
Park, also setting a new Championship Best Performance.
Peter was determined to break the record having come
close earlier in the year but had gone off a little too hard in the previous
weekend National final.
Conditions weren't great as a gusty wind was blowing
but Peter went off committed and crossing the line 2:13.22 was delighted to
see he had broken the record.
Robert Suckling easily qualified for the final winning
the other heat.
The finalist only had a couple of hours to recover
before the final but recover they did and again Peter went off hard and led
from the start to take the title closely followed by "most improved U13 boy
of the season" Robert Suckling taking silver.
