Representing SE Wales, Amelia won Gold medals in the 200m and 300m events. Also joining her on the podium was Form 5 pupil Annabel James, who finished a superb 2nd in the U17 Girls Hammer event.
Last month Amelia was selected to compete for Wales in the Celtic Games international at Eiras Park, Colwyn Bay. She competed in the U16s category against athletes from Scotland and Ireland. In her events, Amelia, who is still only 14, came 3rd in the 200m and helped Wales to a superb triumph in the U16 4 x 100m relay.
Phil Banning, Wales senior team manager, said: “I’m very pleased with how things went. We had a long journey on Friday and the travelling is always tiring for the athletes but I thought they coped with it well.”
Phil added: “When you take the conditions into account there were some excellent performances. For our young athletes it’s all about learning for the future, learning how to deal with Championships and the travelling, sleeping in a hotel, waiting around and competing against high calibre athletes who you don’t know much about.”
Phil concluded: “I was very encouraged by the performances of our under 16s, who won both the boys and girls competitions, I thought they produced some very mature displays.”
