RICHARD Jegou (White Horse Harriers) edged out Oxfordshire rival David Kuester (Bicester) to take the vet 70 men’s title at a world throwing championships.

Although the WTC World 56lb Championships at Moorways Stadium, Derby were poorly attended, Jegou and Kuester enjoyed the closest competition.

With older athletes throwing 28lb weights, Jegou triumphed in the putt, one-handed hammer, throw for height, triathlon and pentathlon to secure overall victory.

Kuester achieved UK vet 70 age group records, which are subject to ratification, in the hammer (9.21m) and ‘sling’ hammer for distance (6.47).
