Athletics Success for Year 7 & 8 Boys at Douay Martyrs
Year 7 and 8 Indoor Athletics at Lee Valley Indoor Athletics Centre
On Friday 13th January 2017, 12 students from Year 7 and 8 participated in an Indoor Athletics Competition at Lee Valley Indoor Athletics Centre in Edmonton. It was our first time entering the competition but due to our recent success in the Borough tournament, it was a good opportunity to test ourselves against schools from Inner London.
The Year 7 and 8 teams finished 5th respectively out of 12 schools in their Year groups were only beaten by either private schools or previous winners of the competition.
All the students performed extremely well on the day but special mentions must go to the following students for outstanding achievement in their events:
Nikhil Chander – 1st place in Year 8 200m and Long Jump
Elllisha Gyamfi – 2nd place in Year 7 200m
Richard Olise – 2nd place in Year 7 400m
James Oyebola – 2nd place in Year 7 Hurdles
