Proud Jim praises young stars

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

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.”
