Copped some "feedback" regarding the Under 14’s 120m. Apparently one coach wasn’t happy the backmarker in the final was on 15.75m.

Unfortunately due to some flight issues coming back from Melbourne I was unable to watch the Under 14’s heats so I was not able to determine why this may have occurred.

Now the results have been posted I can analyse the results.

Firstly there were six athletes handicapped behind 15.75m. Four scratched leaving only 2 in the field.

The tightest handicapped athlete to run was Xavier Robins  -a last start winner of the Under 14’s 120m at Camden. He had a good win at Camden so came back 3m.

The ONLY other athlete to run and be handicapped behind 15.75m was Dakota Hargrave. A first year athlete, Dakota impressively won the Under 17’s 120m at the PreBay – in only her third 120m start ever with the SAAL. She made the final of both the Under 14’s 120m at Brighton and the Bay Sheffield off 15.25m. She was allocated 15.25m for Camden but did not run. I have a policy that an athlete cannot get a lift off the current mark if they scratched from their most recent entry. Therefore Dakota had 15.25m for Hectorville. She ran 3rd behind two athletes who had never made a final before.

So only TWO athletes behind 15.75m, both are 120m winners this season.

The third ‘tightest’ handicapped athlete entered was Ben Burbridge (15.75m) who made the final and ran 2nd.

The fastest heat winner Isaac Byrnes (23m) broke in the final, went back a metre and finished 3rd.

The winner, Hunter Window has run from the 22m mark in his last four Under 14’s 120m starts. He has made finals off the mark but never won before. So without getting a lift he wins his first Under 14’s sash in a sprint event in the two years he’s been competing. It’s the first sash he has won under my handicapping.

Of the six finalists, four had never won a sash and only one – Sebastian Jurado has won over 120m.

I’m pleased to see some new blood in the final but clearly the margins were an issue. Some of these kids have improved heaps while some have lost a bit of form. A few who have jumped up a bit with significant improvement (beyond what I believe would be considered reasonable) will be reviewed.  Rolling Eyes

But it is pretty silly to criticise the lack of ‘backmarkers’ in the final when only two of the twelve who turned up were handicapped behind 15.75m.
