Reece Is A National Champion!

Track Academy athlete Reece Earle stormed to victory in the 60m at the National Indoor Championships in Sheffield at the weekend.

Reece won gold in the U15 Boys’ final with a time of 7.16 seconds, having achieved a personal best of 7.12 seconds in the semi-final. The teenager also took home a bronze medal in the U15 Boys’ 200m, which he ran in 23.56 seconds.

Meanwhile, Reece’s four team-mates all secured personal bests over the two-day England Athletics championships. On day one, Tajaih Kidd ran 7.54 seconds to win the first heat of the U15 Boys’ 60m, while Clayton Jacinto finished heat three of the same competition in 7.71 seconds. Elsewhere, Milan McNeil completed the eighth heat of the U17 Women’s race in 8.36 seconds. Ruth-Ann Otaruoh’s personal best of 10.88m in the U15 Girls’ triple jump came on day two.

Track Academy founder Connie Henry said: “The results from the National Indoor Championships are absolutely fantastic. Reece’s medals and the team’s personal bests are richly deserved, and highlight how much hard work goes on at Willesden Sports Centre each and every week. We’re all so proud of these five wonderful athletes, especially as they spent time doing extra school work over the weekend.”
