Athletics season ends with excellent results at ESAA Championships and London Youth Games

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.
