Where to start?! Many BAC athletes produced some amazing achievements on Saturday and the easiest way to approach this report is to start with the first result shown on Powerof10, and continue from there.

Returning to the men’s events in the field, Patrick Sylla won the Senior Boys’ Long Jump with 7.61m, which was a PB. This was such a good jump that it puts Patrick in line for selection for the World U20 Championships which are scheduled to be held in Poland.

Among these fine performances, new championship records or national standards have been achieved, however as of yet, these have not been confirmed. Further information will, of course, follow, as will details of those selected for the South West Schools Championship at Exeter next Saturday.

Finally, we must thank the tireless work of BAC’s officials and helpers who spent their Saturday at the track, almost without stopping, supporting the Dorset Schools event.
