Proud Jim praises young stars
Yamakai coach Jim Ross praised the hard work his young fighters had put in over the competitions in 2015.
He said:“The kids train really hard and all put 100 per cent in. It’s a long year. We basically compete from January to November so they put a lot of time and effort in and a lot of dedication in. I can never fault their attitude towards training.
“The Wishaw Championships is a series of events. The young boy Keir Fraser took medals in all four events, two gold, a silver and bronze. With those medals you get points and he became the outright champion for the year.
“He’s done really well and he’s not one of the more prominent members of the squad so it’s a good boost for his ego and will help him for the future.”
Jim also commented on his two Yamakai members’, Amy Luke and Calum MacDonald, performances in Indonesia for the World under 21 Championships, adding:“This was the first time both kids had attended a World Championships.
“Neither of them looked out of place and both are eager to get back to this level of competition.”
