6 PB’s in One Day

I only started going to the Strathtay Harriers in Perth in September 2008, so this is my first season.  On Sunday 19th July, I was entered in the Scottish Age Group Combined Events for the Boys Under 15 Pentathlon at Pitreavie.  This was my first pentathlon event.

The pentathlon consists of five events: Shot Putt, 80m Hurdles, High Jump, Long Jump and 800m.   I had a pretty good day beating my personal best in each event and coming third overall which gained me a bronze medal.


My results were as follows: 9.52m in the shot putt; 13.92 in the Hurdles; 1.51 in the High Jump; 5.34 in the Long Jump; and 2:16.48 in the 800m (which I won).

As of 21-Jul-2009 my current record for all events in Scotland is as follows:

The table above shows where I am ranked in Scotland for Under 15 Boys and where I have room for improvement.

  1. I was there! At the risk of sounding like any other proud grandparent, you were remarkable. You should feel good about the self-discipline and focus developed through your course of study and competition. As I’m at least four times your age, I personally guarantee that those character traits lead to more and diverse PBs in life.
