Scott Lincoln retained his British Indoor shot put title yesterday as he triumphed in Birmingham.

The Northallerton-based 29-year-old triumphed at the UK Athletics Indoor Championships with a throw of 20.36m.

Lincoln, who won his first British Indoors title back in 2015, has now amassed a remarkable 15 national titles, both indoor and outdoor.

Jazmin Sawyers claimed the British long jump crown, and the 28-year-old is already targeting a historic Olympic medal.

Sawyers wants to become the first British female athlete to reach the Olympic podium in the long jump since Sue Hearnshaw took bronze in 1984.

She claimed victory at Sunday's UK Championships with a distance of 6.73m.

It follows her bronze at the European Championships in Munich last summer, ending a six-year wait for an international medal, having won European silver in 2016.

Sawyers has qualified for next month’s European Indoor Championships in Istanbul and has the World Championships in August on the horizon but is already eyeing Paris 2024.

She said: “The Olympics is every athlete’s ultimate goal. I see myself on an Olympic podium.

“I think a lot of people look at me and think she is someone who might scrape a medal at European level but is never going to be there at the worlds.

“But I am edging closer and closer towards the kind of distances that will get a medal at world level.

“My goal for this season is to be jumping seven metres and if you are jumping seven metres, you are looking at podiums on a global level. I am working on it, being this consistent indoors is a really good sign for me outdoors.

“Normally I am skirting around 6.30m this time of year. If I can improve the amount I have improved indoors to outdoors, we are talking crazy numbers.

“I don’t want to be going to championships anymore and not winning medals. I will be going there on the day wanting to win, but a medal is a minimum to me now for me to not walk away annoyed.”

Melissa Courtney-Bryant won the 3,000m, while Ama Pipi beat Laviai Nielsen to the 400m title, with Guy Learmonth winning the 800m and Neil Gourley the 1,500m.

In Saturday's action, Daryll Neita and Reece Prescod were both crowned 60m sprint champions.

Neita maintained her fine start to the season by winning in 7.17 seconds ahead of Asha Philip and Scotland’s Alisha Rees.

Prescod ran 6.54 seconds, his fastest time of the year, to beat Jeremiah Azu and Eugene Amo-Dadzie.

Both Neita and Prescod had both recorded personal bests with respective 60m wins in Berlin last week and produced two more impressive performances at the Utilita Arena.

Neita said: “I came here to get the gold and run some decent times, which I think I did today.

“It was good to practice what I will do at the Europeans, three rounds in one day and make sure I get my body ready. I feel really good. Expect fast times.”

Fellow Londoner Prescod added: “I ran a personal best this year and came out a national champion.

“It has been a really good day at the office. First run was cool, second run had a bit more fire and I brought a bit more heat in the finals.”

David King and Cindy Sember won gold in the 60m hurdles. King ran 7.62secs for his third British indoor title, while Sember edged out Marli Jessop and Alicia Barrett in a time of 8.10secs.

Charlie Myers jumped 5.05m to win the men’s pole vault title and Jade Ive claimed victory in the women’s event by clearing 4.35m.
