A trip to the Lee Valley Athletics Centre, Edmonton on New Year's Day proved successful for two of our junior athletes.
Under 20 James Naylor clocked a personal best over 400m on his first outing to a banked indoor 200m track with a superb run of 54.82s. Drew Burridge set a club best time over the same distance of 53.51s in his first competition in the Under 20 age group.
Both James and Drew have been training three times a week throughout the off-season to give themselves a flying start to 2020. Drew comments, "Thursday evening strength and conditioning sessions at the YMCA with Ian Martin, and a regular group of other junior athletes during the winter, has paid dividends. I'd encourage other under fifteen-plus juniors to consider joining us in the New Year."
