Erin takes 1500m Gold in the Bahamas

Congratulations to Erin Wallace who clocked a  new pb and club record of 4.16.61 to win the 1500m at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, Bahamas.  On an evening where the program was delayed due to thunder storms, Erin ran a perfect tactical race, only joining the front runners at the bell and then moving away from them down the home straight.  Erin also ran the 800m coming 6th in the final in a time of 2.08.30.

Also doing the club proud were Adam Clayton and Alessandro Schenini.  Adam ran 10.98 in the 100m semi-final narrowly missing out on a place in the final.

Alessandro also took fourth place in the Long Jump final with a leap of 6.87m and was part of the 4x200m Mixed Relay squad that was again just outside the medals in fourth place.

Well done to all three athletes and their coaches, the club is very proud of you.
