Dou­ble de­light as twins make dis­cus fi­nal at Na­tion­als

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHESHAM Prep School had an out­stand­ing day at the Lon­don Re­gion ath­let­ics meet­ing – with seven pupils qual­i­fy­ing for the Na­tional Fi­nals in eight events.

A se­lect group of young­sters from years five to eight trav­elled to Eton to com­pete against the best schools in the re­gion, and came up with the best Chesham Prep per­for­mance in re­cent mem­ory.

Top of the class was Har­riet Beeby Wynn, who set a new Lon­don meet­ing record in the 70m hur­dles and was awarded the Heather Gar­side Memo­rial Tro­phy for out­stand­ing girls’ per­for­mance.

She also qual­i­fied in the dis­cus, and will com­pete at the Na­tion­als in Birm­ing­ham along­side twins Theo and Mil­lie Rus­sell, who also qual­i­fied in the dis­cus. Chesham’s other qual­i­fiers were Olivia Ed­wards (1500m), Ge­orgina Beeby Wynn (high jump), Daisy Bouch­ier (shot) and Amelia Brownsell (hur­dles).

Even those who missed out on the Na­tion­als were busy beat­ing age group school records, in­clud­ing Joshua Oak­ley and Fred­die Bate­son (both 800m) and Oliver Wilkin­son (long jump).
