A day after the success of the Heart of England match, a few of the BRAT youngsters made their way down to Cheltenham for another opportunity to compete. The weather was mostly kind, however a couple of torrential downpours made for some interesting conditions!
Amber Stevens came away with an impressive haul of 5 medals, with a stand-out performance of 3:16m in the U10 long jump. Hiba Bailey took part in her first ever competition, narrowly missing out on a medal in the U10 600m with a 4th place finish. Great to see Amber and Hiba all smiles!
In the U12s, Millie Gordon-MacLean and Mustopha Bailey were in their first year in the slightly strange age groupings. Millie was so close to a medal, with 2 4th place finishes in the long jump and the speed bounce. Millie also recorded a very respectable time of 15.5s in the 100m in the biblical downpour! Mustopha Bailey tackled the 1200m for the first time, coming away with a silver medal in a time of 4:48. Mustopha was also relieved to clear 1m in the high jump (having being worried he would break his back by landing on the bar!).
Noor Bailey, in the top year of the U12 age group, scored 2 silver medals. In her first ever high jump competition, Noor managed to clear 1.20m on the third attempt. First place also cleared 1.20m, but on the first attempt, meaning that she just pipped Noor to the gold medal on count-back. Noor also threw a PB of 19.87m in the howler to secure her 2nd silver medal of the day.
Well done all!
