Oscar Mytton

Outstanding Oscar dominates athletics meet

Torbay Weekly

It was a very special day for Oscar Mytton (South Devon Athletic Club U13s) at Newquay and Par AC’s pentathlon competition.

Over five events, he managed three PBs and scored highly in each event to take first place in his age category. Oscar threw a PB of 27.41 in javelin, ran a PB in his hurdles of 15.31s and an 800m PB 2.50. Oscar also recorded a 7.19m shot put and a 3.97 long jump, but Oscar’s weekend did not finish there.

On Sunday, he also competed for Devon at the Southwest Inter Championships, finishing fourth in shot put and whilst not securing a podium finish in the hurdles was close to his PB, a great weekend of athletics from Oscar and we are all rightly proud of your achievements!

Several juniors ran Parkruns this weekend. Christopher Tarver ran a fine 10:29, 17th, in the junior parkrun and Hannah Carr 108th in 25:56 at Velopark parkrun.
