Last weekend Leo Rowley competed in the Scottish Indoor Athletics championships. Leo was competing in the U18 section which is four years above his own age group in the Shot Putt.
Leo took the lead in the first round with 14.57m which is a lifetime best for the 5kg shot. The current Scottish champ had to throw a lifetime best to beat Leo with 15.01 which he did which meant that Leo came out with second place overall.
On Sunday 16th Feb Leo was entered in the U16 competition, still two years above his own age group. Leo threw a lifetime best of 15.12m last year at the outdoor competition however this year his progress has been exceptional with him throwing over his life time best for all the throws except one. Leo won the U16 competition with 16.16m (and a new lifetime best) with the 4kg shot. Fantastic achievement, well done Leo!
Leo’s next competitionin the National Championships at the EIS on March 2nd.
Good luck Leo!
