England Athletics U15/U17 Champs, Birmingham, 26/27 Aug 2023

It was great to see four of our juniors compete at this event. Hope to see more there next year.

Another great run by Tom to take the 800m Gold to add to his season’s medal collection.
With 200m to go, he was probably 20m behind the leaders, including the race favourite, but he made up a bit of ground around the last bend before storming past them over the last 50m to win in 1.54.9. Won heat 2 in 1.55.69.

This win means that Tom has achieved a great ‘QUINTUPLE’ of 800m race wins this summer.
England Athletics Indoor U17M 800m champion.
Highgate Night of 10k’s invitational 800m winner.
English Schools Inter Boys 800m Gold.
SIAB school’s international winner.

He ends the season with a best 800m time of 1.52.02.
Tom also won the County 400m title in 49.48 and ran a sub 4minute 1500.
Well done, Tom. A great summer.

Looking forward to more success in 2024!
