Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
