On Saturday, 10 of our young athletes travelled all the way down to Paignton in Devon to compete for Gloucestershire in the regional finals of this winter’s indoor Sportshall Athletics competition. A 2 hour drive each way in no way spoilt the occasion and some of our athletes even managed a trip to the beach! It was a very tough competition but, what I would say is that our athletes (along with those from Cheltenham and Gloucester clubs who made up the team) competed to a very good standard and did fantastically well. Whilst as a team we couldn’t manage to really challenge the other counties (Devon, Avon and Dorset), we had some great individual performances and were not out of place at all. They all thoroughly deserved to be there and did themselves, FODAC and Gloucestershire proud. Well done all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day! Now lets get ready for the upcoming Track & Field season. Full results are attached.
