So, as the new footy season has kicked off with Newcastle vs Arsenal starting shortly, let’s start picking up the action on the track and on the infield from around the UK and elsewhere over the weekend.
As it would seem appropriate and on merit, we’re heading off first to Manchester though for neither United or City, the sides that swept all trophies between them on the domestic scene last season, but Brett Morse, a keen €˜Red Devil’ himself as it happens, who gained an excellent send-off confidence boost of a BAL record of 65.30m in the discus before he boards the plane to Daegu. That was his second furthest mark ever and in close succession to his new Welsh record of 66.06m a little over two weeks ago in Sweden to set up nicely ahead of the greatest challenge he’s ever been faced with so far. Full results as promised!
At the Lappeenranta Games in Finland Märt Israel brought the men´s discus victory to Estonia. His winning throw was 62.65m. Results!
