East Midlands Regional Disability Athletics Championships – bringing home the medals!
Transition 2 learners Oliver and Dylan took part in the East Midlands Regional Disability Athletics Championships event in Leicester.
It is the first time Transition 2 learners have entered an event like this, and for both Oliver and Dylan, the first time they have competed against their peers at this level.
The event, now in its twelfth year, saw learning/physically disabled competitors from all over the East Midlands take part in a programme of track and field events split in three different age categories 11-14, 15-18 and 19+.
Oliver and Dylan took part in three events during the course of the day – 100 metres, 200 metres and 800 metres.
We are delighted to announce that Oliver bought back a haul of three silver medals (with a personal best in the 800 metres!) and Dylan bought back a brilliant bronze in the 200 metres in such a close race.
We are so very proud of Oliver and Dylan for their achievements – silver and bronze medals on the track, and gold medals for self-management and aspiration!
