Jamie Hopkins sets new PB at English Schools Multi Events

For the 4th year running, Jamie Hopkins represented Lancashire in the Octathlon at the English Schools Combined Events Championships in Exeter (21/22 Sept), and he put in both an outstanding and inspirational performance. Forty of the best multi-eventers in the country attended and the standard this year was extremely high. A number of barriers were broken by Jamie, and his results are shown below;
Long Jump 6.01m (PB)
Discus 26.70m (PB)
Javelin 36.47m (LOTS OF WIND)
400m 54.71 (PB)
100m Hurdles 14.94 (heavy rain)
High Jump 1.80m (PB)
Shot Put 8.94
1500m 4:58.56 (PB)

Jamie finished in a very creditable 18th place, and top of the pile for those Northern athletes attending, with a score of 4305 (PB), highlights being Long Jumps, High Jump and a sensational 1500m run.

So Jamie has finished the season, with a power of ten ranking as top of the pile for U17M multi-eventers in the north of England in 2019, and its now all about stepping up to the decathlons and U20M in 2020.

Who wants to follow him into combined eventing?
