Our very own Mike Strange was duly recognised, along with several Bristol and West AC athletes, at the EA South-West Volunteer Awards in Exeter on Saturday 29th September.
Mike won the SW Athletic Official of the Year award, and will be in contention for the national official’s award which will be announced on Saturday 13th October.
His nomination stated:
Mike is a very familiar face in the Bristol and South West track scene
He works well with those around him
Mike stands out as a shining example of how to engage with all aspects of our Athletics community
Despite not being in the best health recently, Mike still turns out for time keeping duties at all manner of meetings
From all at the club, a huge well done to Mike for this very well deserved accolade.
Some of the club’s other stars also picked up awards on the night, with Emily Diamond named as female Senior Track Athlete of the Year, and Eleanor Davis as female Senior Endurance Athlete of the Year.
Remember, we need club members to follow in Mike’s footsteps and help us out as volunteers and officials. Find out more here.
