Doncaster AC athletes Leaha Dixon, Ben Heflin and Matthew Whitehead have claimed 3 of the 9 awards available for competitors in the CPSport Grand Prix series for athletes with physical disabilities. Awards for track and field are given to those who have made the most improvement across the four 2013 Grand Prix events in Chelmsford, Yeovil, Manchester and Gateshead. Leaha and Ben won Parallel Success u20 awards (female and male track) – each will receive a trophy plus £500. Matthew won the CPSport male track award, he will receive a trophy plus £100. The presentation will be at the CP National Championship event at Grantham on 21st September. Great result for all three and for the club!
Last weeks’ British Athletics Age group championships at Bedford needs a mention too. In the disability events, Leaha Dixon got the medal for winning the u15 200m, and Ben Heflin for the u18 400m.
