On Friday 28th June, Olympic legend Linford Christie brought his Street Athletics event back to Swindon to give young athletes the chance to compete in a series of races.

The event consisted of 60 metre sprints for four different age groups – U13s, U15s, U17s and U20s. The top three males and females from each group will now go on to compete against young people from 5 other towns/cities in the Street Athletics National Final in Manchester on Saturday 31st August.

The event in Swindon was a day full of high spirits and enjoyment for those who took part. The rain managed to hold off which meant some fast times were recorded ahead of the big National Final.
