13 year old Super Athlete, Emma Bradley has been busy already in 2020. Emma trains with Neil Thomson Swimming at Nye Bevan every Thursday and was highly successful in running and athletics events in 2019.
This January, Emma had the honour of representing Wigan at the Greater Manchester Schools Cross Country Championships.
Emma has a great attitude to training and racing and I foresee a highly successful year ahead for her in 2020.
James Thompson completed the beyond arduous Marathon des Sables event in the Sahara Desert. Our top Triathlete, Colin Eastham, won 6 triathlon events this year, despite suffering from injury. Even injured, Colin is in a league of his own!

A good West lancs Tri Club and Neil Thomson Swimming contingent participated in this fun end of season event. It’s an open water swim in the dark. Well done to Angela Crerar Connor, Bernie Menton, Nicola Shripmpton, Jo-Anne Robson, Phil Robson and Sophie Robson.
There was great success for West Lancs Tri Club at the Shropshire Triathlon recently. Kath Johnstone finished in 3rd place in her age group and so mounted the podium in a very competitive category. Well Done, Kath!
