Matt Stonier qualifies for the 1500m final at the English Athletics Championships

Matt Stonier (Marlowe House, 6b) has had an exciting and successful weekend at the U20 and U23 English Athletics Championships in Bedford. With over 1000 individual athletes entered to contest Matt was delighted and pleasantly surprised to qualify for the 1500m final and he travelled back to Bedford to compete in this.

It was a great experience for Matt to run in such a competitive race with older athletes. Despite being nervous and worried about getting tripped up, as someone had gone down in his heat the previous day, he ran well and came a respectable 6th in GB. This was a great event to participate in.

Well done to Matt from all of us here at King’s.




Matt trains hard each week and we wish him luck for his next race as part of the English Schools’ team.
