James Puxty (the son of our Sports Massage Therapist, Richard) has continued to achieve in athletics at a National level. He followed up his Nation U17 cross country win in the winter with a win at the English Schools track and field championships where he won the Senior Boys U18 3000m race in a time of 8.32.87. This is even more impressive as this category is a two-year span and he is in the younger year, allowing an opportunity to defend the title again next year.
The English School Championships is seen as the premier athletics championships for junior athletes and was held at Birmingham Alexander Stadium. James runs for Tonbridge Athletics and will now start to look ahead to the Road Relay and Cross Country season.
