Several Bradford athletes won medals at the Aviva Sportshall UK Finals at Birmingham’s LG Arena.
Tobi Adeniji was West Yorkshire’s stand-out performer, winning the under-13 boys’ standing triple jump, and helping Joe Dagger, Iyrwah Gooden and Harvey Kaye to silver in the 4x1 lap relay.
As the seventh person in the West Yorkshire under-15 girls’ team, Lucy Oldroyd could only compete in the 2x2 lap relay but she also took part in the vertical jump as a non-scorer, winning it with 66cm.
The West Yorkshire under-13 boys’ team were eighth out of 12 teams, the West Yorkshire under-13 girls finishing tenth and the under-15 girls 11th.
Overall winners were Hampshire (under-13 girls), Hertfordshire (under-13 boys), Norfolk (under-15 girls) and Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan (under-15 boys, where North Yorkshire were 12th).
