Latest update on our athlete, Nicholas Young who did extremely well in the Welsh Athletics International on 12th July, winning the shot with a PB of 15.15m and came out ahead of two very strong English throwers with higher rankings than him.
His next event is the Welsh Junior Championships in Wrexham on 19/20 August, followed by the Welsh Inter-Regionals in Brecon the following weekend.
Then it’s all change as he leaves Deeside Athletics due to the early retirement of his coach. Welsh Athletics have not been able to find another suitable throws coach for North Wales, fortunately Nicholas is on the British Athletics elite athlete programme and BA stepped in and recommended one of their coaches, Neil Donbavand, who has been working with Nicholas for the last couple of months. Less fortunately he is based at Sale Harriers so Nicholas travels over to Manchester one evening per week (Neil comes to North Wales for the other weekly session).
