SOUTH WEST INDOOR CHAMPS @ CARDIFF – U20 & SENIOR (JANUARY 2016)
Both Frankie Allen and Sarah Smith came away with silver medals in the 60m at Cardiff. Sarah beat her pb, with a rapid 8.05. The magic sub-8.00 seconds will be broken shortly, we are sure. This is Sarah’s first year in the u20 category, so plenty of opportunities in the future to add to this.
Frankie, who has been with the club for more than 10 years, is competing in the senior category for the first time. A time of 8.30 seconds a solid start to the year.
The medal count from the Indoor Championships for 2016 stands at;

  • 4 Gold medals
  • 11 Silver medals
  • 6 Bronze medals

Top athlete Ada’ora Chigbo started her u20 with a solid 6th place in the National Combined Events Championships. She has a great team behind her and improvements are anticipated across all events as she settles into her new regime.
A 60m hurdles time of 9.77 seconds (756 points) saw her in 16th place after the first event. The next two events are her favourites, and after event three Ada’ora was in silver position behind World Junior Champion Morgan Lake (High Jump 1.75m – 916 points and shot 11.82m – 649 points).
