Year 8 studen Charlotte Richardson returns to form after injury.
At the North Eastern Indoor Athletics Championships at Gateshead on Sunday 31st January, Marden Bridge pupil Charlotte Richardson made her competitive return to track after an injury ravaged winter.
Sadly Charlotte suffered a hamstring injury back in August at the Northern Championships and needed lots of time to recover.
Charlotte wasted no time in winning her heat and semi-final in devastating form before valiantly finishing second in a photo-finish in the final.
However, as the drama unfolded, it became clear to the organisers that the winning athlete did not actually hail from or even live in the north-east and was subsequently disqualified, handing 12 yr old Charlotte the gold medal to become Under 15 north-east indoor 60m champion.
