Two victories in Portsmouth for Kirsty

Newham and Essex Beagles jumper Kirsty Smith was in fine form down in Portsmouth at the weekend, claiming two victories in the final UK Women’s League Division Two match.

Beagles finished fifth on the day to secure an excellent third overall in the league with only big clubs Bristol and West and Cardiff AC ahead of them.

Smith, 27, warmed up nicely with victory in the B long jump where she managed a leap of 5.30 metres, before moving on to her specialist event in the triple jump.

There she outgunned the opposition with a best of 12.0m to make it a double celebration.

Victories were thin on the ground in Portsmouth, though there were plenty of excellent performances.

Susanna Banjo won the A 100m in 12.1 seconds and followed it up with second in the 200m where she clocked 24.6.

Temi Akinshipo, 20, backed her up by winning the B 200m in a season’s best time of 27.1, while there were two third places for Temi 
Erinoso in the B 100m and the A long jump, where she managed a personal best of 5.46m.

Demi Ademuyewo was third in the A 400m, with Hatshepsut James fifth in the B race, but an excellent second in the 400m hurdles.

Emily Bullis continued her improvement with a battling third place in 2,000m steeplechase where she clocked another personal best time of 7.23.4.

The other winner on the day was in the javelin where Demi Bromfield was in her usual imperious form.

Having had a go at the shot put, where she finished eighth with 7.62m, she then won her specialist event with a throw of 39.40m, well down on her best, but enough to win the competition.

Paula Peaty was fourth in the A hammer where her best of 40.70m was just three centimetres short of her best for the season, while there were some battling performances from the stalwarts of the team.

Heather McLarnon managed three events, with her best being a surprise third place in the B javelin where she threw 34.80m, while Adele Stach-Kevitz and Natalie Traylen also took part in three events.

Stach-Kevitz managed a fine fourth in the hammer, while Traylen battled well throughout to complete an excellent season.
