ATHLETICS: Double win for Wragby’s Jim


Veteran Wragby athlete Jim Gillespie competed in the spring open meeting at Rugby on Sunday.

First up was the discus in which Jim threw over 27 metres twice for the first time this season, winning it with 27.43 metres.

He then moved on to the shot put which he also won, albeit with a below par 8.44 metres.

Jim said: “I’m throwing the discus much further than I was this time last season, so it’s looking positive. To be honest I was quite disappointed with the shot, but you can’t turn your nose up at a win.”
