YOUNGSTERS MAKE THEIR MARK IN EUROPE

At the European U18 Championships last week, both Cassie-Ann Pemberton and Jordan Ricketts made the final of their events which was a great achievement against the best in Europe.

Both athletes are part of Birchfield’s Junior Development programme which is supported by LDC. Cassie-Ann performed outstandingly posting the fastest time in the heat and the semi-final of the 100m. She was quick out of her blocks in the final but was just pipped on the line by two girls who were given joint silver medals to finish fourth. Her aim coming into these championships was to make the final and she was delighted to finish fourth. This was an excellent experience for her and proves she can deliver at a major championships and cope with the demands of running the rounds of an event.

It was also Jordan’s first major international and he also had the target of reaching the final. He ran well in the semi-final to secure his place in the final where he finished in seventh place. The event was won by fellow Britain, Sam Bennett and Jordan has more events to look forward to the next being the English Schools Championships to be held at the Alexander Stadium on 13-14th July.
