Shot Put Gold!

Three cadets from 1406 (Spalding) squadron represented Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing at the Central and East Region annual athletics competition held in Leicester on the 2nd June.

Cadets Emily Ransome, Ruth Sandford and Joe Campbell-Wharam were chosen to represent the Wing following their success at the Inter-Squadron event last month.

Cadet Emily Ransome saw herself taking part in the 300m, and then the 4x100m relay and 5x400m relay. She gained a respectable 4th in the 300m, and 5th in the 5x400m relay. Unfortunately, the Junior Girls team had a gold medal in their grasp in the relays only to be told that the team had been disqualified for an infringement at a changeover.

Cadet Joe Campbell-Wharam took part in the high jump. Competition was fierce, and despite best efforts could only secure 6th place.

Cadet Ruth Sandford, was to “Put” all their disappointments behind them, and threw her way to a gold medal in Shot Put. Ruth managed to reach a distance of 7m 52cm. Clearing her nearest rival by 20cm. Ruth will now go on to represent the Region at the Corps Athletics
Championships later this month.
