Medals a plenty for Sussex youngsters

Sussex youngsters scooped up a plethora of medals at the South of England U15 and U17 championships at Lee Valley over the weekend, with some twenty youngsters on the podium and four of them achieving gold.

Conditions were fairly mild for Saturday’s events but Sunday produced a strong head wind for most of the track races.

A near miss for Grice in Berlin

Charlie De’Vall Grice (Phoenix) just missed a medal in an exciting 1500m final at the European Games in Berlin last night.

Having qualified comfortably behind Edinburgh’s Chris O’Hare on the Wednesday, Grice ran a sensible race and was always in contention.

Amazingly the talented 17-year-old Norwegian, Jakob Ingebrigtsen, the youngest of the three siblings who had all made the final, led by the half way point and instead of his elder brothers pulling through to win, he kept his nose in front to take the title in 3:38.10s.

SoE championships - BMAF 10k champs.

Many Sussex youngsters are expected to travel to the Lee Valley Stadium this weekend for the U17 and U15 South of England Track and Field championships.

Following their superb performances at last month’s England Schools' Championships when the Sussex Schools U15 Girls won the team title and the Boys team finished second, there are high hopes for some of the athletes. That is if this most important event, does not clash with family holidays.
