Three para-athletes from West Norfolk AC competed in the Eastern Regional Disability Championships at Chelmsford.

Lily Edwards (T20 Under 16) began her triple medal haul with a gold in the shot, throwing 3.48m, and then ran a PB 20.39 in the 100m for silver. Her second gold came in the long jump with a PB of 2.12m.

Wesley Houghton (T11 senior men) ran a superb 100m with guide runner Aaron Raine in 13.44 and the 200m in 28.36 to secure gold in both events.

Cameron Ross (T20 senior men) produced a fine long jump of 4.24m for silver and a season best and then continued his form in the 100m sprint heats, qualifying for the final in which he ran a season best time of 13.84 for bronze. He completed his day with another season best in the 200m in a time of 28.4 for fourth place.

The athletes will be in action at the Norfolk IPC County Championships in Norwich tomorrow.
