One of our Y9 Students, Daniel Joyce completed at the ESAA National Championships last weekend, in the Junior Boys 800m.
He easily won his heat on Friday in 2.00.20, and went into the afternoon’s final as the second fastest, but only by seventeen hundredths of a second.
PE staff watched the final on a live stream from the championships, and were once again amazed by the talent of this young man.
After a steady first lap, and looking like he might be boxed in, Dan made his move with about 250m to go. Although the others initially tried to keep up with him, Dan pulled further and further away, winning by about 30m in a time of 1.58.90!!!
This is a phenomenal achievement, and we are all so proud of him!
