Athletes are Sports Awards’ big winners

Four separate awards were the remarkable haul for City of Salisbury Athletics and Running Club at the newly-reintroduced Salisbury Journal annual sports awards hosted by Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas.

For the club’s members who were present among the 300 guests, winning the four titles seemed almost unbelievable. It made CoSarc the most feted club of the night, just ahead of Salisbury Rugby Club’s also well-deserved wins in three categories.

For the running club, Jaymee Domoney scored a double, taking the titles of both Athlete of the Year and for Outstanding Progression in the Year, these reflecting the long series of successes his hard work has achieved, on the track as well as cross country and parkrun.

Alex Mundell, now a London-based medical student but who still leads from the front and regularly turns out to support the club in competition was winner of the accolade Female Sports Personality of the Year.

Evergreen coach Dave Amey, with no less than 60 years’ dedication to the club and to athletics across the region was recognised by the Outstanding Service to Sport award.

All in all, not a bad night for City of Salisbury.
