BASED on the success of last year’s event, Grantham Athletic Club decided to once again host the Mini Games at The Meres stadium last Wednesday evening.

Eighty athletes aged eight to 11 years took part in the event and competed in 75m, 600m, long jump and vortex throw.

Grantham AC paid tribute to all of the athletes and coaches who helped out on the night to make the event such a success.

Sabrina Richards said: “The standard of competition was fierce and seemingly the youngsters have been inspired by this year’s Olympic Games.”
