OARC Open Championships Report

The Orkney Athletic and Running Club held their Open Championships on Sunday the 19th of September, with generous sponsorship from Sheila Fleet Jewellery.  There were many PBs and some closely contested medals.

In the U15 girls, Millie Dennison got two good PBs for high jump and shot put.  Abi Coltherd won both her track events in the U15 girls and improved on her PB in long jump again, with a winning jump of 4.50m.  Molly Tulloch also had an awesome day, with a PB in all three of her track events and gold in 100m.  Parys Hamilton set a new PB to win the U17 women’s javelin and it was nice to see her back on the track in the 100m for the first time in a long time.  Dorothy Bremner made her mark at her first competition, with a throw of 7.59m to win the U13 girls’ shot put by some distance.  Ryan Linklater also had a good PB in shot put, winning the U17 men’s.  Also in that age group, Ali Mackenzie had a fantastic day with two huge PBs on the track and won the long jump as well.  Brogan Russell was second with a super PB.  Harcus was a strong name on the track, with Bobby and Connor winning both of their track events and Logan and Euan getting PBs.  It was great to see Craig Moar on the track for the 1500m.  He ran it in a new PB and undoubtedly helped Ali towards his too.  Nuala Webb, in the U11 girls, and Freya Kemp, in the U13 girls, did really well to win all three of their events in highly competitive fields.  The U11 boys’ group saw some great competition as well.

It was a great end to the outdoor season of home competitions.  The Club would like to thank everyone who has made it possible for the athletes to compete this year.
