NMAC sent two teams to compete in the EMAA Inter Area Track and Field at Nuneaton on Sunday 18th July. Opposition came from other EMAA clubs as well as International teams from Scotland and Wales.
The Women and Men’s teams both finished Third in their groups which helped NMAC to be third team overall, a magnificent performance as they were only 4 points off second place in the Women’s event and 5 points from second place overall.
There were many brilliant individual performances but, as with all team events, everyone contributed to the overall success. This included athletes who did numerous events and others who participated in an event in which they were unfamiliar with, in order to have a scorer in that event and to gain as many points as they could for the team. Some athletes ran in a lower age group to ensure that as many places were filled as possible. You might be able to spot those athletes who made that extra effort as you look through the results. To all team members WELL DONE.
For many of the athletes this was actually the first competition of the pandemic, especially those who competed in the field events. So NMAC would like to thank you for doing such a great job to help your club.
A BIG THANK YOU must also go to team captains, CAROL HOLT and PAUL KANNA BARLOW, for working so hard to organise the teams and to be so successful in doing so. Well done.
