RAF 100 Athletics Meeting

BGS CCF was kindly given an invite to attend the RAF 100 athletics meeting at the Mary Peters track on the 12th of May, a team of 17 cadets both male and female, junior and senior volunteered. On arrival they quickly got numbered up and got straight into it. Medal after medal came their way as they all threw themselves (some literally) into every race or field event they could enter.  By the end of the day BGS CCF came away with 12 gold, 8 silver and 6 bronze medals, we also won the best under 17 year boys trophy and Best Team Overall. A massive thanks to the ATC the RAF and Athletics NI for a brilliant day’s competition and thanks for all the hard work you must have put into organising the day. One last mention goes to LCpl Jamie Campbell who left the track on a stretcher then an ambulance after bravely putting everything into qualifying for the final of the 200m sprint, LCpl Campbell’s determination and courage even while in pain to carry on displays the type of young adult BGS CCF fosters, well done team.
