Harriers in action at Virtual English Schools

Last week would normally have been the highlight of many a young athletes season with the English Schools Trak and Field Championships in Manchester, an event that has only been cancelled during the Second World War, and would have been the 90th games.

With the loss of the event the decision was made to offer an opportunity for athletes to compare their progress with others across the Country the week of the championships, hence the decision to stage a virtual competition. The results were not eligible for Power10 however all results were recorded determine final rankings and certificates of participation will be distributed.

The Throws Squad had 3 members that were eligible to enter and all produced exceptional performance taking into consideration recent training restrictions

Intermediate Girl Katie Gibson threw a lifetime PB of 52.34m with the 3kg Hammer to rank 2nd, which is a testament to her dedication in her training sessions with Matt Bell.

Alfie Cope, Katie Gibson & Josh Darnell who competed in the Virtual English Schools Games

Josh Darnell , Intermediate Boys Shot now throwing the heavier 5kg implement threw a pb of 11.46m to take 4th spot.

Senior Boy Alfie Cope returned to training after a 4 month lay-off to throw a pb of 41.08m ranking him 2nd.

A great result for KTH!

Well done to all the athletes who competed.
