Success for Osunsami in England Championships

Mighty Mayowa Osunsami continued his superb indoor season with an excellent medal at the England age-group Championships at the weekend.

The Essex & Eastern under-20 60 metre hurdle champion, travelled to Belgium last week and put in two fast runs and it warmed him up well for this prestigious competition.

Osunsami won his heat in Sheffield in 8.21 seconds to make the final and there he battled his way to the bronze medal in a time of 8.04, just a hundredth away from the silver medal.

The Tony Jarrett coached youngster

He began with second place in his heat, clocking 49.52, before improving that in the semis where he was fourth in 49.37.

He could only finish sixth in the final, but he still managed to improve that best to an excellent 49.21.

Aaron Ashmead-Shoye was in three separate events at under-15 level, beginning with the 60m.

He also competed in the 200m where he was third in his heat with a new best of 25.11 and he was 10th in the long jump.
