European Gold for Tattenhall-trained sprinter

European Gold Team 2015

Just three weeks after winning her first GB vest, Tattenhall-trained sprinter, Shannon Malone (far right), played a key role as the Great Britain 4 x 100 metre team won the Gold medal at the European Junior Championships in Sweden last weekend.

After being placed third in the opening heats behind Germany and the Netherlands, Shannon was once again asked to run in the opening leg for the final and she led the team to a stunning victory, earning herself a European Junior Gold.

The time of 44.18 seconds was the fourth fastest ever recorded by a GB junior team and helped Great Britain to top the medal table at the European Junior Championships with a total of eleven gold and six silver medals.

Shannon, a Deeside AC athlete, trains under the guidance of Dave Knott in the gym at Tattenhall Recreation Club, working specifically on her Strength & Conditioning. Her improved core strength, balance and upperbody strength have enabled Shannon to develop into a stronger and more powerful athlete, allowing her to make the breakthrough into international competition.

Our congratulations to Shannon!
