Wragby father and son athletes Jim and Kieran Gillespie competed in the Lincoln Games at Yarborough Leisure Centre.

Kieran won the shot put with 8.47m metres, the 100 metres hurdles with 17.4sec, and the discus with 23.03m.

Jim said: “He looked incredibly smooth in winning the hurdles, producing a great technical display. The shot and discus are also beginning to come together, but there is still plenty of improvement to come there as well.”

Jim also competed really well in the shot and discus but came home without a win. He finished second in the shot (8.87m) and threw a personal best 29.69m in the discus.

Jim said: “All in all, a great day out.”
