Fine Silver for Stephen Baffour at the Age Group Championships.
4 Godiva Athletes competed at the age group Championships.
Jonathan Knox ran 7.45 in the U20M 60m heats
Oliver Blackwell ran a PB of 7.99 in the U15M 60m heats.
Emily Knox ran 8.27 in the U17W 60m heats.
Pride of place goes to Stephen Baffour. On Saturday in a very competitive U17M 60m Stephen ran a PB of 7.01 on the way to the finals and then ran 7.04 to finish a creditable 5th in the final.
On the Sunday Stephen was competing in the U17M 200m. He ran consistently in the heats and semi-finals and then ran a fantastic 22.07 PB which gained him the Silver Medal.
Under the watchful eye of Coach Ronnie (assisted by Brian Darby) it looks like Godiva could have a sprint star in the making.
Congratulations Stephen. That final time also puts him on the Hall of Fame all time records for the U17 men’s 200m times. I don’t think it will be the last time we see Stephen’s name on the board.
Good to see representation at the National Champs at all levels. The sprint section of the club looks very health at the moment
