On Saturday 13 July Hakan Digby, Jamaal Darlington and Christo Chilton represented Dulwich College and London in the English Schools Athletics Championships at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham.
Hakan (Year 12) ran a personal best in his 110m Hurdles heat with 14.68s and then finished 7th in the final with 14.79s. He is a year young in his age group so it is very encouraging for him to hopefully go even better as a senior next year.
Jamaal (Year 9) finished joint second in the high jump with 1.78m. Just shy of his personal best but a brilliant performance for him in difficult windy conditions.
Christo (Year 8) ran his 1500m heat in 4 mins 29s. Unfortunately he did not qualify for the final, but he is a year young in his age bracket so next year, making the final would be a great goal.
In other news, Christo and Jacob Taylor (Year 9) also won their respective aquathlons at the London Youth Games on Saturday 6 July.
That brings to an end all of the schools athletics for us this summer although we hope many boys will keep competing for their clubs and wish them a strong end to the season.
