Title success for Tasmin

A LOCAL teenager produced a strong performance on Saturday to win her race in the Derbyshire Cross Country Championships at Markeaton Park in Derby.

Tasmin Boam, 14, from Hackney, who is a member of Chesterfield and District AC, improved on her silver medal last year in the Under 15 Girls category to take a convincing victory over the 4k course.

Just for good measure she also beat a strong field of Nottinghamshire athletes taking part in this joint event to claim the overall win.

It was a double celebration for the club as Chesterfield’s girls took the team prize, with Lauren Beckett and Sophie Critchlow joining Tasmin to win the gold medal.
