This is the first year that BRAT have competed in the Sportshall athletics series and we’ve done fantastically well to have juniors from the club chosen to represent Birmingham against the counties of Hereford and Worcestershire, Shropshire and Warwickshire.
In the Under 11’s, Evie was really proud to have been selected from BRAT to represent Birmingham. She was asked by the Birmingham Team organiser to be the Girls’ Team Captain! She was selected to compete in 5 events, more than any other member of the team. Her events included 2×1; 4×1 relay; Over and Under relay (hurdles and through a tunnel); speed bounce and standing long jump. She performed fantastically in all – a super effort.
Additionally, we had athletes competing in the U13 and U15 age groups in the afternoon session. The U13 girls team came 2nd, just 2 points behind Warwickshire. The U15 girls team also came 2nd. The U13 boys came first and will be going to the final in Sheffield. The U15 boys were 2nd. Fantastic performances from all of the athletes! All of the BRAT contingent came away with medals: Olimide & Bonheur came away with gold in the relay, Jamie threw a PB of 9.15m in the Shot Putt for a silver medal, and Mali took home a silver in the relay and bronzes in the long jump and 2 lap.
A huge well done to all of those involved – they have done BRATS proud!!
