Westminster Athletics Championships

A small squad of carefully chosen year 7 athletes made the trip to Battersea Park for this years Westminster Athletics Championship where our boys were treated to fine weather and a vibrant atmosphere, with the main stand brimming full of students from contesting schools.

First of our stand-out athletes to step up to the start were our sprinters and although both were unlucky not to make the final, they gave a solid account of themselves – please congratulate Leon  and Idowu  for finishing 3rd and 6th in their respective heats against some serious competition.

Later in the day, we had a stand-out performance from Mehdi who was leading the 800m race coming off the final bend, although Mehdi bravely tried to hold on, he eventually finished in 2nd place and was awarded a silver medal – please congratulate Mehdi for his outstanding achievement.

Not to be outdone, Zhan and Taveesh performed strongly in the throws events with Zhan showing excellent strength and technique to gain two bronze medals for his shot-put and discuss efforts. Taveesh just behind in both events.

Please congratulate all the boys for their efforts on the day – they were great ambassadors of the school.
