Mid Summer Update – Champs, Champs and Vests

This past weekend two of our great up and coming young talents were chosen to represent GB juniors over at the annual competition in Mannheim, Rusciano and Jake excelled in their events and shone proudly as Godiva athletes on a bigger stage.  Watch this space for these two as they continue their rise though the remainder of the season

In other news we have seen some great representation for more of our youngsters across the country, this weekend we will see the steadfast English Schools competition over in Birmingham in the new Commonwealth stadium, which we hope will be a great experience for all those who compete.  And only a couple of weekends back saw the age group national championships where yet again Godiva athletes took away some really great medals and experience for them all.
