Congratulations to Melissa and Ashley on their wedding!
We congratulate Melissa Courtney and Ashley Bryant on the occasion of their wedding last Friday, 25th October. Wishing them a long and happy life together!
And Melissa has also been recognised by the Welsh sporting community by being voted as the Welsh Female Athlete of the Year!
Zac competed for GB in World Biathle in USA!
Last weekend, in St. Petersburg, Florida, U17 Endurance athlete 16-year-old Zac Cloete was in the GB U17 team in the World Biathle Championships. He is the latest of our multi-sport members, many of them going through the early stages of Modern Pentathlon, to compete at such a top level. (“Biathle” is a junior version of Biathlon, which combines Swimming and Running).
He and his female GB partner Charlotte Gilbody raced in the U17 Mixed Relay as Team GB 2. They finished sixth of the eight international pairs, the other GB pairs finishing first and fourth. Our congratulations go to Zac (a) for even being selected for such competition; and (b) for completing his race with his partner for GB!
Excellent achievements by our Sportshall teams October 27th
Just eight days after Match 1, we had to go to Match 2 at Canford, due to the limited availability of their Sports Hall. As did the other teams, our numbers were reduced. Nevertheless our athletes did their best and performed well.

Please note: There is some uncertainty about the validity of the U13/U15 Vertical Jump measurements.
It was remarkable that the U11B and U13B each finished 3rd of the five teams with just two athlete! The U11G, with a reduced team, also finished 3rd of 6!
Jonty was the only U15 to attend this match!
