Welsh Athletics Junior Grand Prix

Welsh Athletics Junior Grand Prix incl. South Wales, East Wales and SW England Indoor Championships – Jan 3rd/4th

FODAC Junior athletes Joe Akers, Lily Crawley, Tillie Westwood and Jensen Coppen were competing at the Cardiff National Indoor Athletics Centre this weekend in the South West Regional Championships and East Wales Regional Championships. They did themselves and the club proud with their performances, picking up a collection of gold, silver and bronze medals in the process. Joe ran a great 200m, winning his heat comfortably, but was unfortunate not to have been in a faster heat and missed out on gold and silver by only a fraction of a second to take the U17 bronze in the SW England Champs. Lily won the U13 SW England High jump title whilst Jensen won the U13 East Wales High Jump title. Jensen also picked up silver in the shot put and bronze in the 800m. Tillie battled hard in all her events (in her very first U13 championships), got a PB in the 200m and will no doubt come back even stronger next time.
