On the weekend of the 19th/20th August a small group of athletes, coaches and volunteers descended upon Wrexham for the Welsh Junior Championships! The sun shone (mostly) and a fantastic weekend was had by all and many memories were made! A big well done goes out to all the athletes who made the 250 mile round-trip up to the top of Wales for the 2 days of competition! Many athletes came away with PB's and some of our athletes made their stamp with Iwan Rees crowned as U15 High Jump and Hurdles champion and Long Jump bronze medallist! Ben Mattey showed his strength in the sprints winning the gold in the u15 300m race and silver in the 200m! Toks Akanbi-Mortimer walked away as U13 Hurdles and Discus champion with a silver medal to add in the U13 Long Jump competition and bronze medals in the U13 High Jump and Shot Put competitions! Some of our athletes also came very close to medals with George Powell and Caitlin Seaborne just outside of the medals in the Long Jump and Shot Put competitions by a couple of centimetres. A huge THANK YOU goes out to all the coaches for all their hard work preparing the athletes for this competition, especially those who made the journey up to Wrexham. Well done to all the officials who gave up their time over the course of the weekend also! It really was a fantastic first tour for our RVAC athletes and we definitely painted the North red and let them know who we were!!
