Four juniors in action here. First off, U20 Heptathlete, Charlotte Rutter took 4th place with a best of 1.45m. It’s been a couple of years since Ashton Harrison competed in the high jump. You may have noticed he’s grown a bit since then so it was no surprice that he came away with a huge PB of 1.40m; an improvement of 15cm! Not far behind was Hugo Douglas-Reeves who debuted in the High jump tonight; an excellent start with a best of 1.30m. And finally, Tori Buckley matched her best ever outdoor High Jump with an excellent 1.25m.
