MAIDENHEAD Athletics Club star Matthew Levett ran the Bristol Half Marathon and was happy with his result, sneaking under the magic 90-minute barrier with a time of 1:29.49.

A good turnout of Maidenhead athletes saw many personal bests and a couple of club records broken in the Alder Valley Boys League final at the Thames Valley Athletics Centre in Eton.

In the Under-11 (U11) division, Jack Britton, Callum Presnail and Daniel Chapman all ran personal bests in the 75m sprint. An excellent run from Presnail in 11.1 seconds (secs) broke the club record and he was the second fastest of the 24 runners.

In the long jump, Britton claimed first place with a leap of 4.05m and Presnail came fifth, while new member Ben Cook looked strong in the 600m. There are all great prospects for next season.

The U13 division saw some good shot throws by Ethan Towers with a personal best of 6.71m and second place, while Alex Stizraker threw 5.85m. Towers also got a personal best in the discus with a throw of 16.72m.

Another new member and first time competitor was Javier Firma who had a good 100m. He was also in the 4x100m relay with Anuchaa Hynes, Towers and Alexandre Sevenou in a great team effort.

Adam Ulhaq broke the club record in the U15 long jump and got first place with a jump of 5.63m. He also got a personal best in the 100m.

Other U15 results saw Callum Jones getting personal bests in both the javelin and discus, and Thomas Humphries get a personal best in shot.

Raja Khan (U17) has been improving all season in the triple jump and finished in style with a personal best of 11.07m. Toby Ralphs had a brave run in the 1,500m against some top runners and finished with a personal best also.

Alex Protopapadakis unfortunately got an injury in the long jump and just missed first place by six centimetres with a jump of 5.82m. It was his last Alder Valley competition after competing for six years and he still holds a huge long jump club record.

Alex and Christopher Otun, who unfortunately could not attend the event, will return next season to represent Maidenhead as U20s athletes.
