The annual Wing Athletics Championship for 2011 was held at Saffron Lane sports stadium earlier this month. All 29 squadrons within South and East Midlands Wing were represented. The female star of the day was without question a cadet from Birstall, taking part in the 100m, 200m and the long jump she managed to smash two records that had previously been set.
Cadet Lloyd-McLear ran the 100m in 12.84 seconds and the 200m in 27.09 seconds which by anyone’s standard is quick, but for a 14 year old is something quite special. As a result of her efforts she was named Sportswomen of the year 2011. Overall the squadron was placed 18th in the wing.
