Three North Somerset Athletics Academy sportshall records were broken at the 13th running of the event.

The 13th running of the annual North Somerset Athletics Academy sportshall day once again saw some fierce competition amongst the elite group with some 80-plus athletes taking part in an excellent event.

Previous record holders include internationals and national medallists, so to break a record here is very special and three academy records were broken.

Sam Ledward broke the high stepper and skipping records, Martha Sell broke the high stepper record and Louis Raymond equalled the speed bounce record.

Thanks go to The Club at Cadbury House for once again providing the medals for event winners and also to all helpers on the night.
