English Schools championships 2017

Selection for these is primarily based on performances at the main London Schools Championships. Athletes cannot enter themselves - selection is by a very experienced panel from the LSAA committee. Further information regarding selection for the London track and field team will be made available in the spring of 2017.

The following six athletes have all competed for the London Schools team and this summer were selected to represent GB in major international championships. Congratulations to all of them on their performances which we are sure will inspire younger London athletes to emulate them in the future. Here is a summary of how they performed:

SOPHIE LEWIS-WARD came 4th in the 5000m race walk at the European Youth Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia where her new pb of 23:37.55 set a British U18 record.
ALEX YEE came 9th in 5000m at the World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz where his pb of 13:52.01 was the 2nd fastest time ever by a GB 18 year old.
ZANSON PLUMMER was a member of the 4 x 100m relay who came 6th in final at World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz.
LORRAINE UGEN competed in Long Jump in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. After an injury curtailed her season in May Lorraine did really well to reach the final in Rio where she came 11th with a jump of 6.58m.
DARYLL NEITA was a member of the 4 x 100m team who won silver medals at the European Championships in Amsterdam. She went on to compete in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. She came 4th in her heat of 100m, narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-finals. She then brought the baton home in the 4 x 100m final to secure fantastic bronze medals for the GB women, whose time of 41.77 was a new British record.
JAMES ELLINGTON was a member of the 4 x 100m relay team who won gold medals at the European Championships in Amsterdam. He went on to compete in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. He was 5th in his heat of 100m so did not progress but was a member of the 4 x 100m relay team who came 5th in the final in 37.98, their second best time of the season.

Also, competing for another country:
TOSIN OKE competed for Nigeria in Triple Jump in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. His jump of 16.74m in the qualifying round was not far enough for him to progress to the final.

In the memory of Sylvester Akpalara, (a very talented runner, who competed several times for London Schools, and tragically lost his life in 2010), the LSAA created an annual award which is for the athlete who embraces the spirit of the 'English Schools Track & Field Championship'. The first receipient of the award is Victor Dos Santos Soares. Here is Victor receiving his award from the Associations Chairman, Gwyn Williams, at the '2011 Sainsbury's UK School Games'.
