Norfolk Sportshall County Championships glory for Diss Athletic Club's Max Brookes
Diss Athletics Club’s Max Brookes continued his winning form in recent months by coming out on top in the Under-13 Boys shot competition at the recent Norfolk Sportshall County Championships.
Brookes, who finished his Under-13 season as the Norfolk county champion in all four throwing events, landed the top prize on this occasion with a distance of 10.75m.
It follows on from his performance as part of the Norfolk County Sportshall team at the Regional Championships in January, when his personal best throw of 10.84m not only saw him win the gold medal, but also break a Diss Athletics Club record that had stood since 1986.
Meanwhile, the Diss AC shot circle has been out of commission for a number of years but the organisers of Diss Cyclathon have funded a new one for the club, which will be available for use in the near future.
