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
