Williams siblings give their best show at championships
Rahaman won silver and Matt Aldred bronze, both in personal best (PB) times, while Olivia Scarles added a bronze in the javelin for the U15 girls.
Turner-O’Toole had a great Championships debut for the U15 boys, adding an 80m hurdles silver to his double gold, while Williams claimed 1500m bronze, as well as 3,000m gold, and Christian Grint won bronze in the hurdles.
Reid’s blistering winning time of 2.05.09 in the 800m was just nine hundredths of a second outside the English Schools qualifying time, but he was at least able to boast a silver in the 1500m too, while Ben Smith took silver in the 3,000m in a PB of 9.53.20.
There were further bronzes in the field for Harry Brandon in the long jump, Kristian Everiss in the javelin and Felix Hale, who leapt to a new PB of 4.85m in the long jump.
Watkins’ 1500m gold was complemented with an 800m silver for the U17 women, while Thear’s 800m gold for the U20 women followed silver in the 400m and bronze in the 1500m and Emma Barraclough landed 800m silver for the senior women.
