Rokeby Record Breakers

Having qualified from the Regional Athletics meeting earlier this term, Benjamin S and Flynn R were representing West Surrey in the National Prep Schools Athletics meeting on Monday this week.

Both boys ran exceptional track events. Benjamin ran an astounding 4:51:82 in his 1500m, beating his own school record! He finished in 2nd place overall in what was an incredible race.

Flynn was competing in both the 100m and 200m finals. He qualified through his heats comfortably for both these races, winning both these races. He finished in 2nd place in the 100m final in a breathtaking 13:46, collecting silver on the podium. He then mustered the energy to go on and break the school record in the 200m in a time of 27.70. Again, Flynn was narrowly beaten and finished in second place.

Both boys should be very proud of their performances and achievements!  Congratulations to them both.
