Peter Smith
Junior Record for Peter Smith


24 June 2009

On a busy weekend British athletes came up trumps with a world record, two new UK records and a Scottish national record.


  • Micky Bushell took the top honour with his world record 14.69 in the 100m wheelchair race in Ibach, Switzerland.

  • Kate Dennison quite literally raised the bar again in the pole vault in Leiria, Portugal with a new UK record of 4.55m.

  • Peter Smith broke the long standing U20 hammer record which has remained the property of Jason Byrne since 1989 with a massive throw of 75.28m in the Northern championships in Manchester.

  • Henrietta Paxton broke the Scottish record in the pole vault with 4.06m at the Scottish championships in Dunfermline.
