On Sunday, seven cadets from 471 Squadron took part in the 2015 Inter-Wing athletics competition in Middlesbrough. Cadet Corporal Markey, Cadet Corporal Clifton, Cadet Greenwood H, Cadet Morris, Cadet Sherrington, Cadet Gaskell & Cadet Gillions all competed in various events throughout the day. Cadet Corporal Markey took part in the 100m Relay, which didn’t end too well – according to Markey – who later earnt herself a silver in her individual 100m race, as well as a bronze in her Shotput event. Cadet Corporal Clifton also competed in the 100m relay, as well as shotput & discus; He came second in the relay, and third in shotput and discus. Cadet Gillions held off fierce competition to earn himself a silver medal in the 1500m race, and Cadet Greenwood H competed in the javelin event, managing to earn second place. Cadet Gaskell and Cadet Morris competed in high jump and 4x100m relay respectively; and both narrowly missed out on a medal, finishing fourth. Finally, Cadet Sherrington earnt a silver and bronze medal, in 200m and 1500m respectively, as well as finishing fourth in her long jump event. These are a great set of results, and I am sure all the cadets feel the same way about how the day went! The day was topped off when Cumbria & Lancashire Wing earnt 3rd Place in the overall competition!
