Worksop Harrier Nathan Langley was victorious at the Humberside Quadathlon and made it a day to remember by winning all his events, setting a new personal best in the shot put and equaling his best in the high jump along the way.

The quadathlon involves a run, a jump, a throw plus one other event of the athletes choice.

The points awarded for each performance are added to give a final score as in a decathlon.

The event took place at the Costello Stadium at Hull, where the young Harrier competed in the under 15s age group.

The multi eventer set a personal best of 12.95m in the shot put and jumped 1.50m in the high jump to equal his previous best measurement.

He just missed out on another personal best in the 80m hurdles after clipping the penultimate barrier, finishing in a time of 12.7 seconds.

In the 300m he again finished first in a time of 41:0 seconds.

When all the points were added up Langley was the comfortable winner with a score of 351 points.

His younger brother, Regan, also took part, finishing 13th in the under 13s category.

Not to be out done Regan also set a new personal best to win the shot put with a throw of 8.3m.

He also finished third in the javelin (24.55m), fifth in the 100m (18.3) and 13th in the long jump (3.0m), to put together a score of 202 points.

Georgina Page added to a weekend of successes for the Worksop Harriers junior throwers.

She also set a personal best to win the under 17s shot put at the Tartan Games at Gateshead with a throw of 10.25m.

A Harriers spokesman said: “They all have a bright future.”

“Nathan is on target to become a very good decathlete, winning so many different events, on a regular basis shows that.”

“While Georgina is ranked fourth in the East Midlands for both the shot and the hammer.”
