nathanTeam Kennet’s Nathan Gillis was the club’s first Junior (u20) to gain a Great Britain vest last Wednesday as he competed in the Manchester International.

The competition itself will see the under-20s face off against teams from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, a combined British Athletics League/UK Women’s League team, and the Armed Forces, and serves as an opportunity for athletes from both the junior and youth circuit to test themselves against a host of experienced seniors.He ran in the 800m race which saw a very tactical first lap before the field pulled away, gaining a lot of experience from the event finishing in 7th place with 1.57.14.
