Morpeth Harriers’ Linden Homes Athlete of the Month Award for June has gone to their leading U15 boys’ throws specialist Andrew Knight.
He began the month well by taking his preferred 4k shot putt abilities to a whole new level, when he putted 13.35m in the North Eastern Grand Prix meeting at Jarrow, his previous best having been only a mere 11.85m.
At the same time Knight has also improved his discus best by around three metres to 28.80m.
He is currently ranked first in the North East rankings for shot putt, and third in the UK.
In the discus, he is fourth regionally and 104th in the UK.
