Ellie Triumphant at School Games!

Radley athlete Ellie Hubbert was selected to represent the Midlands at the prestigious School Games in Manchester. Competing as a T36 disability athlete she raced against athletes in other disability categories, places being decided by a points grading system. Having been disappointed by her 100m run, Ellie put all her efforts into the 200m. Despite an initial false start, and a very safe second start, she emerged triumphant, her gold medal time equating to 583 points, with the silver medal athlete some 33 points behind. This was a brilliant end to a disrupted season and bodes well for the winter and next season.
