Special Event - UK Athletics

31 July 2011

After enjoying the athletics so much a few weeks ago we decided to head back to the Alexander Stadium for the UK trials. This was equally as good with some world class athletes performing including Mo Farah in the 5000m, Jenny Meadows in the 800m, Christian Malcolm in the 200m, Martyn Rooney in the 400m and Jessica Ennis in the long jump and javelin.

We were also lucky enough to meet a number of current and ex athletes including Miss Ellicott's favourite - Linford Christie, Elliot's favourite – Mark Lewis-Francis, plus Steve Backley, Steve Cram, Denise Lewis, Darren Campbell, Kelly Sotherton and Abi Oyepitan.

Renesha Hodgson went onto the BRMB stage to take part in a competition which she won so was lucky enough to come away with a bag full of goodies!

Connor Lally took part in a number of fun events outside the stadium and did really well so came away with a certificate to acknowledge his efforts.

A great day was had by all!
