Mo Steps Up to European Athletics

Athletics Academy

One of our students Mahamed Mahamed, also known as Mo, ran on Sunday 13 December in the European Under 20s Cross Country championships in the south of France.

It was the first time Mo has represented Great Britain so he was very excited about wearing his vest and being involved in such a high profile competition.

Mo finished 22nd in the race which was an excellent effort on his first competition at this level and as he is only 18 he will have another chance next year. He has continued to raise his profile in athletics and we expect he will have several more opportunities to represent the country in future.

The Under 20 men's team managed to come 3rd overall so as part of the team, Mo brought back a bronze medal.

We look forward to seeing even more success from Mo on the European stage!
