Both Adam and Davicia having started well to the 2017 track season, with PB’s for each of the athletes. Adam’s recent success was in Clermont, Florida where he jumped an incredible 7.85m to beat his previous PB of 7.84m. Davicia has been set PB’s all-round which has given her a great start to the 2017 season, but also enabled qualification for the Commonwealth Youth Games 400m event in the Bahamas this August.
