JIMI Tele provided the star turn for Havering Mayesbrook AC as he returned with three golds from the Essex Indoor Championships held at the Lee Valley Athletic Centre, Edmonton at the weekend.

Tele dominated the under-15 boys' long jump, winning easily with his only valid jump of 5.63m and also won silver in the 60m sprint with 7.58 secs.

He returned on Sunday to add the under-15 200m gold to his day one medals, with a powerful victory in a fast time of 24.4 secs.

Sara Luck was also on top form as she struck double gold, clearing 1.60m to win the senior high jump, before taking the 800m honours in 2.16.0.

Rebecca O'Neill powered to the under-15 girls' 400m title, clocking a useful 65.73secs and added the 800m silver in 2.27.04.

Jack Edgar-Hill won his first gold in club colours with his under-17 men's hurdles success, coming through strongly in the latter stages after a sluggish start to edge ahead by six one-hundredths to equal his week-old best of 8.69 secs.

Another new boy, Laurence Goodacre, who joined at the end of the track season, stepped up into the under-17 ranks and made an instant impression as he won the shot title with 13.43m, the fourth best by a club athlete.

Also in the under-17 age group, Gabriel Makinwa's two PBs won him gold and silver in the long (5.55m) and triple jump (12.43m) respectively.
