HIGH-JUMPER Ray Bobrownicki admits consistency is the name of the game for him at this month's BUCS Nationals in Sheffield.

Victoria Park City of Glasgow AC's Bobrownicki has had a solid start to this season, coming second at the British Athletics International Match as well as winning bronze at the Scottish National Senior Indoor Championships last month, both taking place in Glasgow.

And this follows on from an impressive 2014 that saw the University of Edinburgh PhD sports psychology student compete at the Commonwealth Games where he placed in joint ninth with a clearance of 2.21m.

Bobrownicki's dream Commonwealth outing came just after he set a new personal best of 2.28m at the Scottish Athletics League Division 2 in Grangemouth, proving he is heading in an upward trajectory.

And while winning this year's BUCS Nationals in Sheffield between February 20-22 would be a great achievement, Bobrownicki admits the focus will also be on consistency.

"I try not to think too much about the place that I want to come, I usually just try to focus on the elements of the performance and concentrate on my technique," said the 30-year-old.

"I'm just trying to put all the pieces together to have the strength that I did last year and I want to use that and continue to get stronger throughout this year."

While last summer saw Bobrownicki star on the Commonwealth stage for Scotland, he insists events such as the BUCS Nationals still form an important part of his sporting calendar.

The high-jumper finished second at last year's edition and believes a new personal best may not be far off this time around.

"It's always been very competitive in the past and it always caters to a big crowd. People put in their all and there are some good results that come out of it," he added.

"I am in good shape ahead of it apart from some teething issues with my new shoes as the heel tore off my other jumping shoes.

"Other than that, I feel really good and I hope that with my experience I can set a good example. I work hard and I will try and do all the little things to play my part.

"I wouldn't rule out achieving another personal best as I feel really good, but for me it's just about really nailing down the important elements so I can put in a good performance."
