Golden Glory for Alistair and Rowan and Midland Championship records too!!
The Midland U15/U17 Championships was held at Birmingham on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August and there were some stunning performances from Leicester Coritanians with many medals on show which were won by the youngsters over the course of the two days.
Alistair Finlay U15b took a gold medal in both the 300m and 800m but it was in the 300m where his time of 38.50 was a new Championship Record and also a new club record which he already held.
Rowan Powell U15b also took gold medals in both the triple jump and the long jump and like Alistair his long jump was also a new Championship Record of 6.93m and he too set a new club record in the process.
In the U17 men's events, Iquan Silcott, took away two gold medals and a bronze. His long jump of 6.46m and triple jump of 13.34m were enough to seal victory and to improve his life time best performances. His bronze medal came in the 400m where his time of 52.59 was also another life time best performance.
Other medals came from Mari Smith (gold), Cameron Smith (gold), Alfie Thompson (gold), James Hatton (silver), Liam Smith (silver), Matt Griffiths (silver), Ben Dijkstra (silver), Caitlin Harding (silver), Natasha Gilliam (bronze), Ella Shirley (bronze), Amber Griffiths (bronze), Jack Woodward (bronze), Chris Arnold (bronze), Archie Gethins (bronze) and K-Ryan Hinds (bronze).
