Inter Wing Athletics

Air Cadets from 22 (Sandy) Squadron joined cadets from across Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire to brave the weather at this year’s Annual Wing athletics competition.

Despite the cold and wet conditions, four cadets from the squadron received medals, including three silver, and one gold medal, despite a number of the events being cancelled due to the weather.

Cadet Corporal Lauren Barton received gold in the Class E Junior Women’s high jump, and has been selected to represent Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire wing at the regional competition.

Cadets who received silver medals were Cadet Corporal William Clubb in the Class B Youths 200 metres, Cadet Callan Whitbread in the Class A Boys 1500 metres, and Cadet Alfie Adamson Leggett in the Class A Boys long jump.

Corporal Lauren Barton said of the day, “Big well done to all the cadets who turned up for athletics, was a good effort from everyone despite the rain”.

Well done to all the cadets who attended, and those who received medals.
