Liverpool Pembroke & Sefton high jumper, Amelia McLaughlin, has gone part way to fulfilling her Olympic dream by being selected for the North West team that will compete in the UK School Games.
The venue is the new Olympic stadium in London and Amelia along with the rest of the team will spend 4 days preparing for the event in the new Olympic village. The event is being used to give officials the opportunity of organising an athletics event prior to the summer games.
Following his debut run in Belgium recently, Jai Vernon-McGuigan has again been selected to run for the North of England. This time the event is the Home Countries International cross country race at Rouken Park, Glasgow on the 18th March.
