Themis sprints to golden hat-trick
Themis Bower took centre stage at the inaugural Team Bath Minors Open medal meeting, which was given a sprinkle of Olympic Games stardust on Sunday.
Bower completed a hat-trick of victories on the University of Bath track, winning the under-13 boys' 100m, 200m and 800m titles in respective times of 13.8secs. 28.6 and 2mins 32.4.
He received his gold medals from London 2012 4x100m relay runner Danny Talbot, who has recently graduated from the university.
"Danny kindly agreed to come along in his London Olympics tracksuit to present the medals and he was brilliant with the kids," said meeting organiser Di Viles.

"We tried to do the prize giving like the Olympics, with a rostrum and the top three all getting their photo together."
Chasing Bower home in the sprints was Team Bath club colleague Jonah Wrigglesworth, in 13.9 for the 100m and 28.9 for the 200m, while second spot in the 800m went to Tom Brown in 2:41.2
Sam Burkey won the under- 11 boys' shot with a 3.75m throw and Rhiannon Bowen won two silver medals in the girls' category, clocking 11.2 over 75m and 2:01.9 in the 600m.
Joshua Wareham was runner-up in the under-11 boys' 75m in 11.0s and Caitlin Wosika took silver in the under-13 girls' high jump with a 1.15m clearance, as did George Adams in the boys' section with a 1.40m effort.
Bronze medals in the under- 13 girls' age group went to Laura McNab, who ran the 800m in 2:36.5, and Jasmin Norma, who cleared 3.36m in the long jump.
"Overall the meeting went really well and the youngsters who turned up seemed to really enjoy themselves," added Viles.
"We had a total of 99 competitors, which I was a little disappointed with following the Olympics and on a lovely day, but that's just me wanting more."
