Indoor records smashed as Peterborough and Nene Valley AC’s top teen talents impress

A seven-strong squad of Peterborough and Nene Valley AC youngsters headed to Sheffield at the weekend to compete in the England Indoor Athletics Championship – and a magnificent seven personal best (PB) times were set.

Under-15 athlete Sienna Slater ran a 60m hurdles PB of 8.14secs in her heat, before being eliminated in the semi-final race.

Slater also took part in the 60m hurdles, where she gained her second PB of the weekend.

She clocked 9.38secs in her semi-final, finishing third and missing out on qualification for the final by an agonising 0.08 of a second.

Meanwhile, team-mate Katie Marsh qualified for the semi-final of the under-17 60m hurdles, finishing fifth with a PB time of 9.10secs.

Fellow PNV speedster Max Roe ran an 8.48secs PB in the under-17s 60m hurdles semi-final, before finishing a solid fifth in the final.

Jack Wheatley also bagged a PB when he clocked 8.90secs while finishing sixth in his semi-final.

Elsewhere, a trio of under-20s competed in the 60m hurdles heats, but failed to advance to the later rounds.

Max Aslin ran 7.60secs, while his sister Holly Aslin clocked 8.13secs.

Keira Gilman crossed the line in a time of 8.11secs.

Both Gilman and Holly Aslin registered PBs, and the only one of the seven athletes not to, Max Aslin, was only two hundredths of a second outside of setting a new best time.
