PEEBLES Jumps Group continued its tremendous success this season bringing home no fewer than nine medals from last weekend’s Scottish Age Group Championships held at Grangemouth Stadium.

A double-medallist was 11 year-old Robert Horton from lnnerleithen, who despite his young age in the Scottish Under-13 championships, produced best-ever performances to take silver in the long jump with 4m76 and bronze in the 200m with a new best of 28.23 seconds achieved in his heat, taking him to second in the Scottish U13 rankings.

Fifteen-year-old Louis Whyte from Peebles, already Scottish U17 champion in long jump and triple jump, signed off his inaugural season moving up an age group to compete in the Under-20 Scottish Championships.

And he certainly did not look out of place, with a personal best long jump of 6m34, just getting pipped for bronze, and a magnificent triple jump of 12m48 to take the silver.

TLJT’s Ava Lees from Jedburgh, a newcomer to the group, leapt to a lifetime best in the long jump of 4m56, not once but twice, to seal her second place in the girls’ Under 13 Championships, missing gold by only 4cm. For good measure Ava took silver in a very competitive 100m, again producing a new best performance of 13.48 seconds in her heat.

Training partners Molly Reville and Matilda and Antonia Brockley, all from Dumfries and Galloway, but travelling to train with the Peebles Jumps Group, contributed further medals and personal bests.

The group is coached by Linda Nicholson.
