The weekend of 13th/14th August 2022 saw a small group of athletes travel to Newport for the Welsh U13, U17 and U20 Championships bringing back a Championship Best Performance, 6 Golds, 6 Silvers, 1 Bronze, 1 club record and 7PBs across all disciplines.
Lucca Tardivel hit the ground running in the first event of the weekend with a Championship Best Performance in the U13 Boys Shot Putt with a throw of 10.68m and swiftly followed this with Long Jump Gold (4.76m) and 100m (12.50) and 200m (25.56) Silver.
As the weekend continued the performances continued to come with Lilly Noble taking 300m Gold and Silver in the 300m Hurdles and 80m Hurdles.
Lewis Davies took home a medal of each colour with U13 Boys Javelin Gold, 800m Silver and 1500m Bronze. He was also supported by Elliott Rowe in the 1500m who finished a strong 11th. There was another strong finish in the U17 800m where Sam Dallas took 5th in a strong field.
Moving up an age group, Olivia Schrimshaw set a PB and U15 club record in the 100m (12.47) with her 4th place finish and took home Triple Jump Gold (10.68m).
Megan Brown finished a fine 5th in the U17 Womens Javelin (32.70m); just shy of her PB and Discus Silver (31.89m).
In the T38 Category, Will Bishop won Gold over the 100m (15.49), also very close to a PB.
