This girl deserves a special mention – Emily Wilson, U13, came to Trafford on Sunday for the first time. When she was running her first ever race, the 75m sprint, she threw herself at the finish line with gritty determination and, as they say in Yorkshire, went a right cropper ! Being the gutsy girl that she is, she got herself up, got sorted out in the first aid area, scuffed the skin off her cheek, knee and hip, was in a lot of pain and with the sort of bravery one doesn’t see very often, went on to compete in her 150m race. Emily finished 1st in her heat in the 75m and 2nd in her heat of the 150m.
A big well done from me all at Pendle Athletic Club !
