Despite not being 100 per cent fit, Blair managed a creditable 52.63m to beat the previous best by over three metres.

Luton’s fellow throwers also impressed, Jamie Potton-Burrell winning the hammer, shot, discus and getting a bronze in the javelin.

Jamie’s father Dave picked up four silver medals, while Geoff Grinsted claimed three bronze medals, and his wife Keeley took bronze in the hammer too.
