SESSA Indoor Champions at Lee Valley
On Tuesday 6 December, our Athletics Academy travelled to Lee Valley to compete in the Southern England Student Sports Association (SESSA) indoor championships at Lee Valley.
All of our Itchen athletes did extremely well. Everybody got personal bests in their events, including:
- Hannah Ingram - 800m, 2.38
- Jacob Thomas - 60m, 8.04
- Ellie Hodgson - 60m, 7.78
- Lynden Olowe - 400m, 50.72
Two of our athletics students brought back medals, with Ellie Hodgson achieving the bronze in the 60m and Lynden Olowe impressively taking the gold in the 400m. See the video of Lynden winning his race here.
All of our athletes were competing against other colleges and several universities, meaning that many of their competitors were older than them.
We are thrilled with this result and are sure more personal bests will be met during the rest of the season.
