Mo's Winning Month

Athletics Academy

We're just over half way through May and already Mo Mahamed, our athletics champion, has already taken part in three athletics competitions.

Most recently, Mo took first place in 5000m in the Hampshire Athletics Track & Field Competition on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May. This was a great achievement for Mo, since not only did he come top of his category in the Senior Men's, but it was the first time he had competed in the 5000m. It's yet another race he can add to his already impressive repertoire

On 7 May, Mo competed in Watford at the British Athletics League Division 1 and came second in the 1500m with a time of 03:59, only one second off his personal best of 03:58. 

The week prior, on 2 May, Mo also performed in the 3000m, taking seventh place at the BMC PB Classic in Street. The time was 08:34, setting a brand new personal best for Mo this year. 

Overall it has been a great month so far from Mo and we look forward to seeing even more from him in the following months.
