Athlete of the Month Award for August 2016 has gone to talented
Under 17 Woman throws specialist Bobbie Griffiths.
Griffiths had a superb month indeed, firstly winning a much prized Gold medal in the Javelin,
throwing a new personal best of 40.24m at the combined Under 13,
Under 17, Under 17 Northern Championships at Middlesbrough.
At the same venue a few days previously, she had produced three excellent performances
when competing for her club in the final Northern League Division 2 match.
She provided excellent B string support in the Hammer, producing
a personal best of 22.85m with the heavier implement to finish second.
Griffiths also gave excellent B string support in the Discus,
also placing second with her best throw of 26.39m.
However Griffiths had her own moment of glory when she won the A competition of her more favoured Javelin,
producing a new personal best of 33.24m, with the heavier implement.
At the annual Tartan Games in her Under 17 age-group,
Griffiths won the Javelin witha throw of 35.99m.
She also competed in the Senior event, and threw the heavier implement 32.58m to finish second.
