About Login

David "The Beast" Dawson, Long time Exeter Harriers Athlete with a short spell at Birchfield Harriers in 2003, competing for Birchfield as an U/20 in the National Junior League where i won several matches in the Shot Putt as well as being rewarded an Athlete of the Match Medal. i also competed for the Senior team as a B string with Scott Rider at Eton.

I started Competin for Exeter Harriers when i was 12yrs old where i was given an opportunity to throw the 7.26kg shot as B string at Redruth in the SouthernMens League Div 2 ending with a Fun throw of 10.03m!

I only started getting good in Shot Putting when i was an U/17 when i Broke the Devon U17 5kg record in 2000 with a throw of 16.92m and won my first major medal with a bronze at the England schools and Another bronze at the U/17 AAA both at the Don Valley Stadium.

In my first year as an U20, i again broke the Devon U/20 shot Record with 15.42m and went on to win the England Schools Gold Medal 2001 at Exeter with a 5th round effort of 15.28m but what makes this win even more special is that only a month before, i accidently Fractured my Right Ankel and was unable to train my lower half of my body at all, and even through the competition it constantly Hurt, but with this victory came recognition and i was Chosen to compete for my Country, For Great Britain Juniors againt our French Counterparts in France. The Proudest time of my Life.

With a PB in france of 14.25m with the 7.26kg, i was automatically chosen to again compete for GBR with Greg Beard and Derrick Squire againt the Might of the USA in Stoke! where i personally felt like athletic Cannon Fodder as i had the follow to best U/20 Shot putter in the world, who threw a massive 19.56m!! but i loved it nevertheless.

My Second year of U/20's (2002) was personally, my best!, After Breaking the Devon U/20's record with 16m 85cm (6kg) i was chosen to compete for GBR juniors at what was to be the last televised Loughboro International, where i threw a 7.26kg PB with 14m 95cm, what was just as special was that 3 Throwers from devon were picked, Me, Sam westlake-cann and Alex van der merwe. I also competed in the Senior intercounties at bedford but fate was against me as i fractured my right ankle while warming up! But we travelled 200miles to compete so the onsite physio (after advising not to throw) secured my foot and despite emense pain, threw a almost PB of 14.73m! But that was all i could manage. At the AAA's u20, i lost the gold to sam westlake-cann by 4cm which really hurt but got my own back in Italy when me and sam were picked for GBR u20's againstItaly & Spain which i won the gold with 16.79m (6kg) but lost an Italian team shirt which i swaped a gbr t-shirt for which gutted me :-(. At the ESAA in Nottingham it was bassically me vs Derrik Squires! the rest we not even close. we both ended up with pbs but Squires won with supprising throw of 17.12m and i hit 16.56m but i feel i won as after the comp derricks coach bought me an ice cream which was ace!. 2003 was a wierd year, changed my technique to rotation (after a special day with Adam Nelson in2002) but still threw a 6kg PB with 16.87m but the big change was joining up with Birchfield harriers! I won the indoor u20 AAA's with 16.09m, a poor winner for a poor turn out of 4 throwers! von counties was a great day all round, 3 golds and 3pbs! SP was 16.87m, DT was 45.05m and HT was 44.56m a great End.
