On October 27 one of our members, Liam Wilson claimed four national para-records, Liam broke records in both the 16-and-under and 19-and-under T37 long jump, with his jump of 4.28m was 1cm further than both previous records. He also broke the record in the 200m for both age groups with a time of 28.42 seconds with the previous record being 29.21 seconds.
