West Norfolk Athletic Club under 15 sprinter Charlie Williams performed excellently at the recent Loughborough Students open indoor meeting.

The meeting was a graded event which means that athletes race against other with similar personal best times and not by age group or gender.

Williams therefore found himself in a very tough heat against U20 and senior athletes and in the first round ran an excellent 7.89 seconds.

In the second round Williams bettered this and ran 7.84 seconds, a national qualifying time and new club record. This is a fine achievement so early in the season. Williams now moves onto regional and national level competitions in the new year.
