There was double gold success for Thetford Athletics Club’s Cameron Try at the Norfolk County Indoor Championships, held at Lynnsport in King’s Lynn.

His day began by winning the under-13 shot put with a personal best throw of 6.58m, exactly one metre longer than the second-placed throw.

Try then followed up with a second-place finish in the long jump where he had been leading the competition with a jump of 3.80m before competitor Nikolaos Tirchineci leapt over four metres with his final jump.

However, due to the event winner coming from outside of the county, Try still ended the event as the gold medallist for the Norfolk Indoor Championships.

Try ended the day with a trio of medals, sprinting to the bronze medal with a personal best time of 9.2 seconds in the 60m sprint.

Harley Swan’s first outing in the U17 age category ended with a fourth place in the first heat of the 60m sprint, recording a personal best time of 8.5 seconds.
