Wragby athlete Jim Gillespie’s final event of the year was at Biggleswade Athletic Club’s summer season closing meeting on Saturday.

Jim competed in the discus and shot competitions and won both with throws of 28.36m and 8.79m respectively.

Jim and his son Kieran will now turn their attention to having a short rest break before resuming training in readiness for next year.

Jim said: “Kieran and I will have a month off training to recuperate and I will spend this time planning the important winter’s training, so that we can both build on what we have achieved this year, and hopefully improve next season.”
