Young Stags Medal Rush
A quartet of Young Stags competed in the Middlesex Track & Field Championships at Lee Valley on Saturday 24 July. Between them, they came away with six medals – one gold, three silver, and two bronze.
Charlotte took part in three field events – discus, javelin and long jump – achieving personal bests in all three, and medals in all three, with two silvers and a bronze.
Jorjia and Monisade competed at 200m, and both qualified from their heats for the final. In the final, Jorjia hauled herself from fourth to second in the final few metres, whilst Monisade achieved a good sixth place.
In the 800m, Eddie found himself in a strong field, but stayed with the leaders throughout and fought off challenges to take third place. Jorjia led her race from gun to finish in an impressive display of running, and is now U13 Girls 800m County Champion.
Brilliant performances by all, reflecting the hard work that they have put in.
