Moberly Stars in London, Wales and Zagreb
It was quite a weekend for some of the Moberly Stars competing in London, Wales and Zagreb.
At the London Area Green Belt and below, Omar won a bronze in what turned out to be a very hard u38k group. With many contests going to golden score, Oliver Almond and Ali just missed out on the medals. Oliver Lee and Corey competed in the u46k and although they both also missed out on medals they had some excellent contests. Nasima and Maddie also fought in the u36k and u52k respectively picked up further experience.
In Wales, Juniors Reuel, Michael, and Tyrese had extremely difficult groups, but fought with great spirit. In the u66k Reuel lost out in the bronze final, placing 5th. Micheal and Tyrese achieved more valuable experience.
In Zagreb, John Jaynefought in the u100k at the Junior World Championships. Ranked no.1 he had a bye in the first round.
