West Norfolk youngsters put in some strong performances at latest QuadKids event in Norwich

The second of the Athletics Norfolk quad kids series took place concurrently with the County Championships.

With the U13s having other events on the day, it was only for the U11 athletes this time.

James Watts improved on his silver medal from the first meeting with a gold out of a big field of 20 athletes and his best set of results yet, with a huge 73 points in the 600m in 1.57s.
