Competition summary, Mid-Sep ’20
Croydon Harrier Jack Ennis leapt to 2.06m at the Chelmsford Open on Sunday in the men’s high jump competition.
It’s the 18 year-old’s best effort since February and just shy of his lifetime best of 2.10m.
Meanwhile at Dagenham, sprinter Derek Kinlock clocked 21.39s for the men’s 200m, his 2nd best time.
Most of the Croydon Harriers squad were in action at the Coulsdon Open at Woodcote School on Saturday.
Arguably it was Alex Penfold who enjoyed the pick of the performances, finishing third in the men’s 1500m A race in a new lifetime best of 4:04.26. He was also third overall out of the 95 competitors.
