Katie Gibson moves to UK number 2!

In the final event on the KTH calendar, the Open throws event which attracted some of the UK’s top throwers from across the country, it was Kettering's own Katie Gibson in the hammer that had the performance of the day.

Gibson, Kettering’s rising star of the Hammer, threw a personal best of 40.85m beating her previous best of 39.27m achieved in the Northamptonshire County Championships, to move to UK number 2 this season and third on the UK all-time list.

Katie Gibson acheived the third best throw ever from a UK U13G athlete

This was a magnificent finale for Gibson who now settles into the winter preparation phase ready to do battle with the UK’s best in 2018 where she will be eligible to compete in National competitions such as English Schools.

Congratulations to Katie on her magnificent season.
