An Air Cadet quartet from 1228 Mablethorpe represented their squadron and competed in regional athletics competition this week.

The event took place on Sunday (June 8) at Barkers Lane Athletic Stadium in Bedford where the four took part in events alongside cadets from other UK squadrons.

Their wing, Trent Wing, took first place overall in the competition and these four cadets helped to secure victory after taking two seconds, two thirds and two fourth places in the events they competed in.

And cadets Vincenzo and Domenico Lippolis helped to set a new record in the 4x100m relay race with a time of 48.9 seconds.

Commanding Officer for the squadron, Warrant Officer Scott Gardiner, said: “These four cadets have all done their unit proud with their efforts and we hope to push on and gain more sporting success in the future.

“A big congratulations goes out to all the cadets and staff involved for the overall success.”
