Keep on Running
Congratulations to Isabelle Thompson, Year Eight, in her excellent performance at the Hereford and Worcestershire County Athletics Championships and to George Beardmore, Upper Sixth, for his impressive attainment at the Cardiff Whitchurch 5K run. Both pupils have achieved significant success in Athletics this month.
Isabelle, Year Eight, recently competed in the Hereford and Worcestershire County Athletics Championships in Stourport-on-Severn. Isabelle competed in two events and was presented with a Silver Medal in the 100m, making her the County Runner-up. Her recorded time in the 200m meant that Isabelle was awarded the notable, County Champion title. Isabelle said: “In the 200m, I received a Gold Medal with a time of 27.7s which is a new Personal Best. I am very happy with my performances.”
Isabelle has a very busy few months ahead, with a number of competitions all over the country. We wish her the very best of luck.
George, Upper Sixth, who made his Midlands debut as a Junior in Belfast in January 2019, has stepped up to Senior ranks at the Cardiff Whitchurch 5K race with a remarkable 15:14 minutes Personal Best in the 5K event, to finish 19th overall. George said: “I was delighted with the result and to finish so high up, in a very elite field, is particularly pleasing.”
George was running against several Great British Senior Athletes. His next event is in Manchester, where George aims to break the 15 minute barrier in the 5000m. We wish him every success.
