What were already stunning results at the Junior World Championships (JWOC) were made truly astonishing by the final event's result: the Great Britain Women's Relay Team winning gold.

This was the thirtieth JWOC. Already in the week Grace Molloy had won bronze medals for sprint and long. And Fiona Bunn had won silver in the middle distance. These three medals equalled the GBR medal count from the previous 29 competitions combined. For the final race Grace and Fiona teamed with Megan Keith to win the first ever GBR gold at a junior world championships.

Clearly this ia a great reward for excellent runs and years of self-motivated hard work. The week's achievements are a great credit to not just the athletes but also their many coaches and training partners. Many congratulations all round.
