Isabelle Skelton also came 1st in the U17’s 300m and well as 1st in the B string in the Long Jump.
The men fought just as hard with Cameron Rawson competing in 4 events running 200m and 400m in personal best times and shocking us all by appearing in the Shot Putt(which Cameron has possibly never competed in?) and WINNING… and having a huge 10m throw…
