Adam Booth completes his first Decathlon!
Adam has trained assiduously in all the necessary disciplines, including Pole Vault (PV). This work reached fruition in Manchester at the weekend where he took part in his first-ever Decathlon at the English u17M Combined Events. He achieved SIX event PBs, plus a PB total, including an Octathlon PB en route!
It would have been even better but for success in the PV causing limited time to prepare for the Javelin! Because it covered the regions, Adam also achieved a silver medal for Midland CAA (which includes the South-West)!

Final Team Dorset Match for 2018
The fifth and final Southern AL Match, at Par on August 18, will conclude the competition season for Team Dorset. They currently rank 3rd of the 16 teams in Div. 3 S-W. With four league points for each match winner, winning the division is still possible! But it is so close that even finishing in the top three will be a great achievement!
