Morpeth’s Under 17 Woman Throws specialist Bobbie Griffiths, began her 2017
outdoor Track & Field campaign in fine style on Saturday 1st April,
when she produced two personal best performances, and won two Bronze medals
at the annual Blackpool Winter Warm Up Open Meeting,
held at Stanley Park in the North Lancashire seaside town.
Griffiths proved beyond all doubt that she is approaching good early season form,
when she putted a lifetime best of 10.11m in the Shot, improving on her
previous outdoor by just over a metre, which gave her a Bronze medal.
Another lifetime best came in her weakest event, the Hammer, where she improved by 1.40m,
with her best effort of 32.68m, which placed her sixth in the competition.
Her second Bronze medal came in the Discus, where she threw a seasons best of 27.00m,
which was a little adrift of her best, but nevertheless a good pointer for the forthcoming season.
