A lot can happen in six months, especially when you're an up and coming sports star.

Team England finished Trinbago 2023 with 49 medals - 16 gold, 23 silver and 10 bronze - placing the team second in the overall medal table.

And less than a year on from that incredible feat, our accomplished athletes continue to break ground and make waves on the domestic and international sports scene.

Here's just what some of our Trinbago medallists have been up to over the past month.

A couple of 60m speedsters

Maddie Down became the first para gold medallist at Trinbago 2023 as she stormed to victory in the T38 100m.

In a time of 13.47, the teenager beat Australia's Indi Cooper by a staggering 0.54 seconds, with Akeesda Snowdon, also from Australia, grabbing bronze.

Since that moment, Down was nominated for the 2023 SportsAid One-to-Watch Award an roared onto the senior stage with a recent silver at the UK Indoors National Athletics Championships in Birmingham.

Clocking a brand new personal best time of 8.24 seconds over the distance, Down came second behind Birmingham 2022 gold medallist Olivia Breen, who beat the youngster by just 0.02 seconds.

But Down wasn't the only Trinbago medallist to shine in Birmingham.

Mabel Akande helped Team England to mixed 4x100m silver at last summer's Games.

The Lincolnshire athlete teamed up with Teddy Wilson, Noah Hanson and Thea Brown for the silverware, finishing an agonising 0.03 seconds behind winners and new Commonwealth Youth Games record holders Nigeria.

But her recent feat on the senior stage brought 60m UK Indoors bronze in 7.32 seconds for the 17-year-old, close behind Amy Hunt and Team England four-time Commonwealth Games medallist Bianca Williams.

Netball Super League debuts

The netball squad that earned a bronze medal in Trinbago have also gone from strength to strength, with three members making their Netball Super League debuts in February.

Captain Darcie Everitt and midcourter Isabella Phillips were both included in London Pulse’s squad for this season, with Phillips impressing on her debut at the league’s season opener in Nottingham on 17 February.

Phillips then earned her first start a week later, with Everitt also taking to court as Pulse beat Surrey Storm.

There was also a debut that weekend for shooter Anya Williams, who made her Super League bow for Manchester Thunder against Cardiff Dragons.

Williams signed her first senior contract with Thunder aged just 16 last summer, with her performances at the 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games were a key factor behind her inclusion in Thunder’s squad of 12.

Swimming to silver at BUCS

The swimming squad in Trinbago enjoyed outstanding success with nine golds, 10 silvers and four bronzes.

That haul was Team England’s best in the pool since the inaugural Commonwealth Youth Games in 2000 and saw them beat Australia to top the sport’s medal table.

One of the standout performers in the pool was Sienna Robinson, whose new Commonwealth Youth Games record of 32.09 seconds in the 50m breaststroke catapulted her into the record books.

Add that to her 100m breaststroke gold and 200m breaststroke silver and Robinson was making waves.

At the recent British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Long Course Championships at Ponds Forge, Sheffield, Robinson was back on the podium with 200m silver.

Taking over five seconds off her time in Trinbago last summer, the 19-year-old finished second behind Kara Hanlon of Edinburgh in a new personal best time of 2:27.32.

Robinson led out the first 100 and held on strong for silver in a charging field, stunning the field six months after her history-making moves for Team England.

Three-time Trinbago medallist Reuben Rowbotham-Keating also soared to a silver medallist at BUCS.

The Loughborough-athlete had narrowly missed out on bronze in the 400m IM, with the title going to Team England's Max Litchfield who was competing as a guest at the event.

But Rowbotham-Keating made it up with a flying time of 2:01.84 minutes to take the silver behind Bath's Josh Gammon in the final.

At last summer's Games, the butterfly and freestyle specialist took silver in the 200m fly event behind Malaysia's Li Hen Goh whilst helping clinch mixed 4x100m freestyle gold and mixed 4x200m freestyle silver.
