THREE Basingstoke and Mid Hants athletes were selected for the Manchester International Athletics Competition last week.

Mair Edwards (16) was selected for the GB Juniors to run in the 4 x 400 metres relay, in what was her debut for Team GB.

Her usual event is the 200m and it was daunting occasion, never having run that distance, but she helped the team win a silver medal, running the second fastest leg in the team.

Kieren Showler Davis ran for England Seniors in the 4x100m running a fast anchor leg to secure gold for the team.

Owen Richardson was selected for GB Juniors, also in the 4x400m relay, he ran a very quick final leg to take the team from last to third bringing home a well deserved bronze medal.
