NATHAN Douglas says he is ready to move on from a disappointing day at the Anniversary Games, writes STUART WEIR.

The 36-year-old finished seventh with 16.18m in a below-par triple jump competition, which saw only two athletes break the 17m mark in the London Stadium.

Oxford City AC’s Douglas, who won the Lee Valley Throws Fest Open Series the previous week, was left disappointed with his latest showing.

He said: “I've had better days.

“I was struggling from the off and couldn’t quite find my rhythm.

“The wind was difficult. At the start of the runway you could not feel the wind, but once you started, you could.

“I think the wind was messing up my runway, so I couldn’t find my rhythm.

“I think I have to put it down to being ‘one of those days’ and move on.”

Douglas added: “Jumping 16.88 last week was really nice, to get that feeling again, and I was hoping I could have pushed on from there and get beyond 17 metres again.

“Hopefully that will happen soon.

“It was great to be back in the London Stadium jumping in front of a home crowd, my people.

“I love these occasions and just wish I could have jumped further for them.”
