Photo shows first 3 in U20W 60m final. Emmanuella Kone Gold. Issie Tustin Silver. Sadie Graham-Mulvaney Bronze. Due to an initative by Lorrainne Graham-Mulvaney, Lorraine asked Colin Jackson (who attended Day2 of the Championship, with TV cameras, upon his main task that day), if he would present the medals to the 3 Cardiff girls. As you can see he obliged. Something that all the girls, and their parents will remember. Will complete this report when full medal list is sorted.
