Young athletes ready for indoor championships

SIX members of the Lincolnshire Athletics Academy are competing at the UK National Indoor Championships this weekend.

Michael Craven (U20s 800m/1,500m), Kaine Walker (U17s 200m/400m/800m), Sam Smith (U15s 400m/800m), Ashley Sandall (U15s 200m/400m/800m), Cameron Marshall (U17s 1,500m) and Rosie Marshall (U15s 800m) will all be in action on Saturday and Sunday.

The event takes place at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.
