TWO of Tamworth's fastest rising athletes have been honoured by Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson.
Abbie Peet and Isabella Wall have been celebrated for their recent efforts at the state cross-country titles by being awarded certificates.
The duo's coach Wally Warner said the certificates were "reward for effort".
"These two girls have worked so hard and have come such a long way," Warner said.
"They have both overcome their challenges and have improved 100 per cent.
"Their efforts were top notch and I'm very proud of them."
Both Wall and Peet will now turn their attention to their weekly athletics training and competitions.
"At the moment we are training Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights," Warner said.
"As well as those nights we are also training Sunday mornings.
"Anyone is more than welcome to join and give it a go.
"We work hard but have a lot of fun as well, so it would be great to see some new people give it a go."
