What a great week for Yate thrower Conibear

WHAT a terrific eight days of action it has been for Yate & District AC thrower Toby Conibear.

A week after winning silver at the English Schools’ Championships Conibear celebrated another silver on his international debut representing England at the British & Irish Schools’ Champion ships in Swansea.

Conibear threw 59.36m to ensure an England one-two with team-mate Alex Bernstein (68.01) of Preston.

The following day Conibear was back in action for Avon in the South West Inter-Counties Championships at the Exeter Arena.

This was the same circle that he threw a personal best of 63.60m to win the South West Schools’ title last month and again he impressed to win the under 17 men’s competition with a championship best performance throw of 62.04m.

Two championship silvers and a gold in eight days adds up to a rich spell of form for the Matt Spicer coached thrower.
