Some of our youngest athletes made their first ever appearance in a national competition at the U13/U20 and U15/U20 Age Group Championships in the Emirates Arena, Glasgow at the weekend. Great performances all round and some PBs too.
On Saturday, our youngest athlete, Stuart Hawkins, made it to the semi-final of the 60m and although he didn’t make the final, he achieved his second PB of the day in that race. Taylor Frame also bagged two great PBs in her 60m and 200m races. Cavan Marie was very close to her PBs in both events she competed in and performed well in a tough 800m race.
On Sunday, Zoe Hawkins knocked almost two seconds off her indoor PB in the U15G 800m race and was only three hundredths of a second off her previous best time outdoors.
A very worthwhile experience for all athletes in a slightly more formal race setting. Very well done everyone!
