The Blue Stars had eight young athletes travel to compete at the Olympic Stadium in London last weekend. Invited to compete as part of the UKA Club Connect programme, based on their performances achieved this year, the Club’s Under 15 Boys & Girls 4x100m Relay teams travelled to the Olympic Park to compete at the Muller London Anniversary Games. The Girls team of Ruby Jerges, Cleo Tomlinson, Jessica O’Flaherty and Ella Hannyngton ran first and finished 5th in 50.67s , whilst the Boys team of Matt O’Dwyer, Adam West, John Fickling and Tom Gilsenan-Best took sixth place in 47.24s.  Both these performances set new Club record marks. This was a great honour for the athletes and the Club to be able to take part in this event, competing against many of the big London Clubs. They all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and shows what they have achieved this year.
