Despite the worldwide pandemic, summer season of 2020 has turned out to be a dense one. Light euphoria because expectation for the season were exceeded. This year, almost all Ašais athletes were in the younger year of their respective age groups, which often times is a disadvantage, but not for our athletes, because of the hard work during quarantine. This summer, athletes of Ašais won gold and bronze in Latvian championships, in addition a bronze medal in Baltic Championship for U16 too! Small note - in each age group to U18, there are two athletes. The statistics are as follow:

A rating of excellent is awarded to Stella Paltiņa, who won the Latvian championship and many other competitions. Roberts Glazers had a great season in his first year of U18 winning bronze in 1500m Latvian championship and many new PB's. Furthermore, the great performance of Elza Niklase in the U16 Baltic championship - bronze in 2000m! However there are a few unfortunate events. Renāte Beļājeva exeprienced a dissapointing season, but there are reasons for that. Hopefully everything will go back to normal. But let's end this review on a positive note. It is clear that the next year should be even better, because then their opponents will be the same age as them. Now a small break and soon the training of fall will start!
