dna castellon clash of the clubs 2022

“The inaugural DNA U20 Clubs competition involved, as its name implies, youth. It was also witnessed with enjoyment, I can personally vouch, by many others who fitted into that sacred category… Much whooping and shouting, and even some drumming, came from the respective teams and related supporters as they encouraged their fellow competitors.”

“Wow, what an event! Met some wonderful people and had great fun while competing for the U20 team of @tvl.leichtathletik at the @dynamicnewathletics U20 Cup de Club. In the end I never lost a single battle in highjump and ran one of my fastest 400m splits in “The Hunt”. Swapped some jerseys along the days and partied with the other athletes.”
