Racer shows class
LINCOLNSHIRE Paralympian Jamie Carter set a new personal best in the Jedburgh 10K in Scotland yesterday.
The 17-year-old Cleethorpes AC athlete, who featured in this summer's Games in London, clocked 29 minutes 24 seconds in the road race.
It was a big step up in distance for Carter, who competed well over 100m and 200m in the capital.
The Binbrook ace proved his strength, eclipsing the 32.32 he achieved in the Lincoln 10K race in March.
However, it wasn't quite enough to clinch victory in yesterday's race, which was won by Simon Lawson.
Carter, a student at the Grimsby Institute, trains regularly at the town's King George V Stadium.
He is now looking forward to a winter of strength work to further improve his endurance base ahead of next year's racing scene.
