Leaha and William Selected for CPISRA World Games

Doncaster Athletic Club para athletes Leaha Dixon and William Baxter are celebrating after being selected to represent Team England at the 2018 CPISRA World Games in Sant Cugat, Barcelona in August.

Track athlete Leaha, 18, has been entered for the T35 100m, 200m and 400m. Specialist thrower William, 22, will compete in the F36 discus and shot put. This is the first overseas international competition for the local duo who also took part in the 2015 CPISRA World Games in Nottingham, both bringing medals home to Doncaster.

The multisport World Games provide development and learning experiences to help prepare athletes from around the globe for future sporting success at high profile events such as the Paralympics and World Championships.

At the CP Sport Athletic Series event in York on May 12, the pair showed that their hard work training over winter is paying dividends. Leaha came close to her personal best times in 100m and 200m, and William threw a lifetime best of 10.39m in shot put.

Poor lad hadn’t taken on enough water. Hope your OK ,” Continue reading
