YOUNG athletes from King’s Ely brought home a grand total of 15 medals at the Cambridgeshire Athletics Association Championships over the half term holidays.
Gold medals were won by the impressive Gemma Gow, who finished a good five metres clear in the 100 metres final; Owen Cole, who gave a fine performance in the hurdles, despite limited training this term due to his many other sporting commitments; and Rasul Mohsumov, who won the shot after delaying his flight home so that he was able to compete. A further eight silver and two bronze medals were won on the day by King’s Ely Junior and Senior students.
Head of Athletics, Richard Powell, said: “Along with Owen Cole, Harriet Bruce and Max Stubbings showed that there is much talent coming up through King’s Ely Junior, particularly in Year 7, while Elric Doswell deserved more for his determined performances in three events, securing a silver in the triple jump. It was particularly pleasing to see the likes of Sam Hirons and Ollie Saunders still eager to do athletics when cricketing demands allow, thus showing that their ability as athletes remains high. Michael Brennan also deserves a special mention for winning silver in the Under 20 100 metres; Michael has kept his athletics going all the way through King’s Ely Senior and his contribution and example is much appreciated by staff and fellow pupils.”
