Jamie Moffatt, Youth Commonwealth Games, Trinidad & Tobago, 07/08/23

North Down AC’s Jamie Moffatt whose outstanding 100m form was recognised with selection for Team Northern Ireland at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Trinidad and Tobago, or Trinbago ’23, was in action on the track on Monday 7th August. The Bangor Grammar School pupil who is coached by Roger Sexton ran in the 3rd heat of the 100m where he finished 3rd with a PB of 10.85 qualifying for the semi-finals. There were 3 semi-finals with the top 2 sprinters automatically qualifying for the final alongside the 2 fastest runners up. Jamie ran 10.99 in the first semi-final later the same evening finishing 5th and outside qualification. The exceptional achievement and experience of racing against the best sprinters in his age group will undoubtedly benefit Jamie through future local, national and international competitions.
