In the middle of our Olympic Week, it is fantastic to celebrate a piece of outstanding athletic ability. Last Wednesday, in defiance of consistent rain and harsh conditions, Samuel Ashadu and Siobhan Hanrahan competed in the ISA National Athletics Finals at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham. Despite the weather, both competitors showed an exemplary attitude which further consolidated their qualification through to the finals.
Siobhan ran extremely well, but was unable to gain a place in the first three in her 600m race. Samuel, however, was part of the successful North West relay team who won their race. Congratulations to our very own National champion!
