Double joy for City of Norwich runner Kimberley Aspland in Manchester
Athletes with a learning disability competed in Manchester over the weekend in which three City of Norwich AC athletes played their part.
Competing for Great Britain in the World Indoor Athletics Championships held at Sportcity the trio produced some excellent performances.
Kimberley Aspland took silver in the 800m in a time of 2:37.03 going on to be part of the gold medal winning team in the 4 x 400m relay.
Holly Durbridge just missed out on the medals in the 60m sprint but made up for her disappointment when helping the 4x200m relay team take the silver medal. Declan Manning found himself in a very tough shot competition when placed seventh overall with an effort 10.07m.
Club athletes Michael Painter and Callum Brown had a 'field' day in the Cambridgeshire Throws Competition.
