CITY of York Athletic Club star Scott Lincoln followed up his ninth British shot put title with a personal best performance in the Czech Republic.

Lincoln broke the 20-metre barrier for the first time in his career at a meeting in Brno, with his throw measuring 20.39m.

That followed his British Championships win in Birmingham, where a throw of 19.56m sealed the title.

Coach Paul Wilson said: "In Brno, he threw 20.39m - the first male to throw over the magical 20m barrier since 2010."
