(E) European THROWING Competition in CROATIA
 
EUROPEAN THROWING COMPETITION - CROATIA 
Second European Athletic Winter Throwing Competitions Pula, Croatia, 9-10 March 
 
Recently married Shelley Newman gave a new meaning to the cliche "something borrowed" before winning the supporting discus competition in the European Throwing Competition in Croatia. 
 
Newman's kit - and the rest of her luggage - failed to materialise so the former Shelley Drew, who last month wed fellow international thrower Lee Newman, quickly borrowed the necessary accoutrement from team officials and fellow athletes. 
 
Team leader John Trower said: “She borrowed bits from pretty well everybody. She had my sweat-top, Zoe Derham's throwing shoes, and a few items from Ian Cole, our physio." 
 
It proved a winning combination as Newman of Belgrave Harriers won her 'B' competition with a throw of 56.80 metres after fouling her first two efforts. Overall when taking into consideration the 'A' group results she was placed seventh overall. 
 
Philippa Roles finished fourth and 15th overall with a best effort of 53.90 metres. 
 
British record holder Lorraine Shaw placed third in the hammer competition. The Sale Harrier threw 64.81 metres - 28 centimetres better than she achieved in her first competition of the year in South Africa nine days earlier. 
 
Derham swept dramatically from ninth in Group B to third with a final effort of 59.20 metres - a metre-and-a-half of short the personal best the Birchfield Harrier set last summer. 
 
Joanne Duncan of Woodford Green finished fourth in the 'B' shot with a best effort of 15.62 metres. In the men's discus her clubmate Emeka Udechuku placed third throwing 58.64 metres. 
 
Former world junior javelin champion David Parker placed 10th in the 'A' javelin competition. The Shaftesbury Harrier threw 67.48 metres in the first round.
