SGS Improvement Centre see athlete's flourish
The SGS Improvement Centre, that runs on Thursday evenings at the WISE Campus, is a dedicated Centre for athletes wishing to improve their performance.
The Centre is open to athletes from all event specialisms and focuses on strength and conditioning work through specific circuits and activities.
SGS College has seen some fantastic results from its participants during the 2022 competing season. The Improvement Centre started last winter under the guidance of Paul Filer. Paul set up the Centre with the idea of offering essential winter conditioning to high achieving athletes to help them improve and see results during the competition season.
This summer has seen all its regular athletes improve in their performances with Owen Garrett, pictured, finishing in Gold medal place in many competitions this year. Owen also achieved a Gold medal in each event this year at the Welsh Championships.
Paul Filer, Head Coach at the SGS Improvement Centre, commented:
"The Improvement Centre has been so beneficial to athletes wishing to push themselves further to achieve great things."
“Owen Garrett is shown clutching his 3 national Welsh Championship medals this year in Javelin, discus and shot. Owen finished in the top 10 UK U15 in all 3 events. Owen finished 3rd in the UK in shot and has only just turned 14. Owen got the Bronze medal in the Shot Putt at the England Age Group Championships earlier this year with another big personal best of 11m34 up from his previous 11m06 recorded the week prior. This is a direct result of the work being done at the Improvement Centre."
