BUCS Outdoors was great end to the year for UoN Athletics, with great performances all round, amazing support and lovely weather. The event saw a massive team of 25 athletes turn out to compete, and despite the early Saturday start the energy and enthusiasm of our athletes never dropped throughout the three days.
There were some amazing performances across both track and field events, and despite the extremely tough competition we had several finalists deserving of a special mention:
– Aubree Peipmeier 5th place in 5000m finals
– Beth Mortiboy 4th place in Triple Jump
– Gavin Lock, Pierre Walker, Makun Madar and Adam Thorpe in the 4×400 relay final
– Nick Lawrence, Pierre Walker, Olu Ogunseitan and Seb Mathewson who would’ve finished 6th in the 4×100 relay final, despite an unfortunate DQ it was a great performance.
Also massive congratulations to everyone who competed:
Olumide Ogunseitan, Pierre Walker, Makun Madar, Gavin Lock, Adam Thorpe, Jack Allison, Adam Houchell, Alex Zinal Bradford, Jack Millar, Seb Mathewson, Harry Ellis,
Grace Elvin, Ailsa Malcolm, Katie Buckingham, Katie Clubb, Victoria Reeves, Charlotte Sadler, Megan Gildea, Aubree Piepmeier, Donelle Arulanandam, Beth Mortiboy, Chloe Bird.
