Six Cadets from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron did their utmost to Run, Jump and Throw their way into medal winning placings at the recent Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing athletics championships at the Tudor Grange Park Stadium in Birmingham .
The Air Cadets from the Nuneaton based Squadron were up against stiff competition from cadets of 26 other Air Cadet units in both track and field events and did their absolute best to come home with some medals. Unfortunately despite all their efforts they came home empty handed.
Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks Officer Commanding 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron said, “I am so proud of the effort put in by all our cadets, each of whom took part in three events. They may not have won any medals this time but everyone in the team did their very best for the Squadron and we can't ask any more than that.
He added, “As I said, we couldn't ask any more of those cadets who represented the Squadron this year but we may have stood a much better chance of coming home with some medals if more of our cadets had volunteered for the team. I can only congratulate those who did step up to the line to represent their Squadron and hope that the stalwart efforts of Cdt Kyle Evans, Robert Ormston, Sgt Justin Allan, FS Connor Little, Cdt Cameron Bennett and Mohammed Khan, act as an example to encourage more of their colleagues to take part and represent their Squadron at future sporting activities”.
