A HAT-TRICK of gold medals for Havering Mayesbrook under-13 starlet Alex Law led the way at the Eastern Counties Indoor Championships at Chelmsford on Sunday.
Law opened up with a long jump PB of 4.55m, came from behind to win the 60m sprint in another PB of 8.3 seconds, before smashing his hurdles best with 10.1, the fastest indoors this winter nationally by an under-13 boy. Two other hurdlers struck gold in PB times.
Jack Edgar-Hill equalled his career best of 8.5 with an impressive win in the under-17 hurdles, while Angela James smashed her PB to clock 9.5 to win the under-20 and senior race. Rylie Trott, in only her second race indoors, improved her PB to 10.1 to win silver in the under-15 hurdles.
Joe Ramie improved his indoor best with an excellent 6.80m leap for gold in the under-20 long jump, with Adam McCarthy taking bronze and later adding a 9.9 hurdles bronze.
