Anatomy of season 2021

Thank God, season of 2021 was not ruined by Covid-19. Therefore SC Ašais had a fulfilling summer! And what a season it was! Let's take a look!

An excellent season experienced Roberts Glazers with 9 pedestals in his account, from which 8 were the highest step of a pedestal and one was the 3rd step. Roberts got two confident victories in both middle distances (800/1500m) in the U18 Latvian championship, a victory in the Baltic U18 championship in the 1500m distance and two victories in Finland including a first time record and a club record in the 3000m distance. Furthermore a 3rd place in 800m in the historical Ullevi stadium located in Gothenburg! That way Roberts concludes U18 age group with an indisputable season leader status in the 800m, 1500m and also 3000m distance. In the Baltics Roberts is the season leader in the 1500m and the 3000m! Excellent!

Continuing further, Elza Niklase also had a fulfilling first season in the U18 age group with two victories, two 2nd places and a 3rd place this summer! Also including a 3rd place in the Latvian championship for adults in the 1500m and also a 2nd place for the 3000m distance in the U18 Latvian championship! Just as much joy for U14 Stella Paltiņa who managed to get bronze in the 1000m. Unfortunately due to the virus, Teodors Godiņš had to pass the Latvian championship, however his seasons' results suggested a place on the pedestal was possible.

The other youngsters of SC Ašais are continuing to get acquainted with athletics and who will most likely experience their own pedestals next season.

And now time for a little rest before the preperations begin for the fall/winter season!
