February 10th and actually the whole weekend turned out to be the Olimpics for our athletes! The crazy weekend came to an end with the start our U16 runners winning 2 and 1/2 pedestals. Why 2 and a half? It will be explained shortly, but first - 1000m! For the very first time in her life, Elza Niklase set a foot in the 1000m distance, in which every breath taken was a new adventure in the world of athletics. Fighting fearlessly and winning her heat, Elza "stopped" for 1/2 a second before the pedestal in the two run overall score. An excellent performance also in the mid-distance was for Roberts Glazers being 3rd abong his giant rivals. It's clear that runnning with these giants, that it's work not only with the muscles, but with the mind too!
From one Queens'(athletics) ball to the next, Ašais runners continue pushing their limits in Maximas' youngster multiathlon for U14. To tell the truth, it was more of a sprint multiathlon, but that is nothing ;D. We can sprint too! Idea of the race is quite simple - you had to compete in 60m, 200m sprint and long jump from place. The colossal amout of participants further increased the heat. Very well performed Ričards Špacs, getting 5th both in 60m and 200m sprint of 100 athletes. Long jump from place wrecked a little the overall score, but despite it, Ričards 8th overall. First time competing in multiathlon, Roberts Cercins 29th overall. The very same race for U16 will be in the evening.
With the start in Latvian U20 championship in Kuldiga, Ašais athletes continue indoor season 2019. Artis Rožkalns sets his feet on the start line of 800m. In a very high-powered junior competition of 21 athlete. This time 5th with a result of 2:00,39. Result's appropriate for this winter. His PB improved by 4 seconds and he's place higher. For the winter conditions it's alright. Next up from the indoor championships - powerful U16 race. It's going to be fun!
On February 3rd to the captial traveled the best latvian U14 athletes (born in 2006.-2007.), who proved themselves in selection competitions in their respective regions. We are truly happy, that in his second indoor championship, he managed to be the best among his peers running at a golden speed and earning the fastest middle-distance title, we are talking about none other than Ričrds Dāvis Špacs!!! We are proud and happy for his

Ašais runners went went for the first time to the city of Klaipeda to compete in an international athletics competition for youngsters. Latvia's and Lithuania's strongest athletes had come to compete in their respective age groups. An astonishing number of runners in our distances - 30 on average! On the first race day to the start line went Renāte Beļājeva (U16) and Kārlis Dieviņš (U18) to test their limits in the 600m distance. Renāte, in a very cutthroat competition of 35 girls, got 4th place. To bronze medal only -1,5 seconds! Kārlis' return in the world of athletics after ankle fracture and 6 month long "empty" period resulted in a new PR, but still with a humble place in the leaderboard.
2018. /2019. season is the 11th season of SC Ašais! On 12th December we will be celebrating club's 10 year birthday! What is sports club AŠAIS?

And the pursuit of the great goals is one that brings us together everyday - in training sessions, races, jokes, laughs and all the good things that happen to us!
