Callum not only achieved his two goals we set out to do, but he collected his first medal in the British Athletics Cardiff Cross Challenge. After a superb start running in the lead group, he chased down the leader all the way up to the finish line. However Callum’s chip on his foot gave him first place, but they gave the Welsh runner the gold as he dived through the line. We can now head to the major championships ready to get top positions.
British athletics quotes ‘The U15 boy’s race produced one of the highlights of the day with a thrilling finish between Brecon’s Luke Davies and Burton’s Callum Abberley (Simon King) which ended in a photo finish. Davies dived for the line after leading for most of the race and won by the narrowest of margins. It was a highly entertaining race with Reece Curtis (Stephen Shaw) claiming the final podium spot”.
