E-mail Print

Congratulations to Illawong Athletics' Harrison Brierley who was victorious in the Under 18 Male NSW Decathlon Championships. The ten gruelling events were held over 17 and 18 December, 2016.

This was Harrison's first attempt at the decathlon and what an impressive effort it was. He came first in 5 of the 10 events and was a clear winner overall. His results were:

Event        Place  Performance  Points
100m:          1st        11.40     774
400m:          1st        53.28     670
Long Jump:     1st        6.08m     604
Shot Put:      6th       10.07m     490
High Jump:     1st        1.94m     749
110m Hurdles:  1st        15.68     768
1500m:         5th      5:29.73     401
Discus:        6th       29.10m     447
Pole Vault:    6th        2.00m     140
Javelin:       6th       29.82m     297

Final Result:  1st                 5340

After this success Harry will probably look at trying to improve his pole jump, given that his pole vault height wasn't much different to this high jump PB ;-)
