Twenty-seven year old former Brunel student Dominique Blaize made a positive start in the Southern Athletics League Division Three South West campaign, competing alongside Chris Dack for Kingston & Polytechnic Harriers.
Blaize and Dack delivered the performances of the day for their respective sexes, with Dack throwing 15.87 metres to win the men’s shotput, and Blaize throwing 11.65 to win the women’s.
Blaize also won the women’s hammer event, as well as claiming points in three others.
Since graduating from Brunel University, Blaize had competed in various athletics competitions. She finished second in the 2008 BUCS Indoor High Jump, jumping 1.8m and eventually winning the silver medal in the overall indoor athletics competition.
Her best performance in the 100m was a time of 11.87 seconds, set in 2010, the same year in which she set her personal best for the 200m, in 24.05 seconds. Blaize’s best in the 400m was 68.2 seconds.
Recently, however, she finished first in the 200m and the women’s high jump at Twickenham for the Sweatshop Southern Athletics League Division.
The former Brunel student looks set to make further progression in the field of indoor athletics, hoping to work hard and earn more success, adding hers to the long list of successful athletics alumni of Brunel University.
