Impressive results at county championships

Track Academy athletes returned from the Middlesex Indoor Championships with a grand total of four medals and 30 personal bests achieved across the two-day event.

Fifteen students and two coaches from the academy took part in the championships at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre in Edmonton, north London.

Shenal Kuranage took home gold, winning the U15b long jump on day one with a personal best of 5.48m. His team-mate Demario Seaton secured a silver in the U17m 200m with a time of 23.57s, while Maxwell Litchmore won bronze in the U17m 60m after finishing in 7.40s.

A second bronze medal for Track Academy was achieved by Takiyah Barbe-Springer after she threw 6.59m in the U15g shot; this was a personal best. Dexter Abeyasekera, Zoe Dolan and Alexia Quintanilla, none of whom had competed in county championships before, were also among those who achieved personal bests.

Track Academy founder Connie Henry said: “Coming home from the championships with four medals and 30 personal bests is an outstanding achievement for our young athletes. Considering how much their training has been impacted by the pandemic over the last couple of years, their commitment to their sport is certainly something to be celebrated.”
