While Ašais athletes are testing their limits in Alūksne, Ašais hiperactive bomb Roberts Glazers is spending his time in the Swedish city of Karlstad to participate in Baltic Sea Games. Roberts started in the rather unusual distance of 2000m. He started promisingly, winning 3rd place with a pre-record - 6:16,32! We are happy for Roberts' first international start being a member of the Latvian team. We are certain, that just now everything is starting! Awaiting new challanges!
In the athletic spirits this summer season, Ašais athletes once again participate in Stirnu buks. This time in the beautiful Pilssala of Alūksne, though unable to fully enjoy the race, due to the bad weather. Alūksne stayed unexplored. Unfortunately another mishap occured to Artis Rožkalns - to fast of a pace for the few indications in the track. Lack of indications led Artis from the track costing him the result. Roberts Glazers, who at the time was in the Baltic Sea sports games, let his Latvian peers get the pedestal much easier. all in all, Ašais runners participated honorably, winning 3x bronze medals and the fastest team status. Been and will be better. We will be back for gold! Third place for Renāte Beļājeva in U16 age group, Stella Paltiņa in U12 and the flying Dutchman - Artis Rožkalns.
With the start of Ričards Špacs in Latvian U14 age group championship summer season continues in the athletics tracks. Continuing with a blast! As usual, in U14 age group there are many participants. As well in the 1000m distance 27 young runners step on the start line, including our only U14 athlete. Competition was fierce! No joke, because 6 similar level runners were all aiming for the pedestal. Even with the imense nerve-wrecking tension, Ričards fought like an animal, winning a silver medal in the U14 Latvian championship and setting a new PB - 3:05,58. Thus finishing U14 age group excellently - gold medal indoors and silver in stadium. Next year awaits new expiriences! Photos - here!
Two stormy days, both literally and figuratively have endured 3 Ašais U16 age group athletes. First race day in Ventspils olimpic center stadium was very windy. On the start line first set foot Elza Niklase in the 1500m distance. Have to mention that this was her first start in this distance. Finished in honor. In her first Latvian champioship Elza was in 8th place, leaving a considerable reserve for improving her result. Second to set off was Roberts Glazers. The statistical place beforehand let us hope for a medal, however the God of sports had a different idea - Roberts 5th in 1000m.

After skipping previous season due to an injury, Kārlis Dieviņš(U18) is back on track. He's achieved yet another PB taking off a second to his previous record, though only 12th among his peers(of 23). The most important thing is that progress in
An excellent adevnture once again. In the exact middle of June Ašais athletes went on a journey to Finland - the land of a thousand lakes - to participate in a huge athletics competition "YOUTH ATHLETICS GAMES" in the town of Lahti. On the first race day (actually the second) two of our athletes set off in the sprint distances, but Kārlis Dieviņš started in his first international 800m competition. If Renāte Beļājeva and Stella Paltiņā blazed across the track sprinting without high ambitions, then Kārlis Dieviņš managed to set a new PB in 800m (2:09;19) and be 11th of the 22 participants.
