LOCAL athletes Bradley Webb and Macaulay Robinson, of Lynn Grove High School in Gorleston, competed in the 60 metres final of this year's Street Athletics in Manchester with excellent results.

Bradley progressed through the heats and

semi-finals to finish an excellent fourth in the final against the fastest under-13 boys the country has to offer.

Macaulay ran excellently to win his heat

to progress through to the semi-finals of the under-15 boys - a real achievement as he was competing against some boys almost two years older than him.

Brad and Macaulay both improved upon their efforts of last year when Macaulay fell in his heats and Brad made it through to the semi-finals.

The boys both met Leroy and Leon from Britain's Got Talent; The Kombat Breakers Street Dance group who they made friends with at last year's event. They also met Linford Christie and Darren Campbell, two of the best athletes this county has every produced.
