Jake continues dominance winning English Schools

Jake Minshull continues his high level of dominance this year, winning the 800m English Schools championships.


Congratulations to Jake Minshull on winning the Junior Boys 800 metres title at this years English Schools Athletics Championships.

The England indoor U15 800metre champion, Jake went into the championships ranked number 1 in the UK following his club age record of 1.58.24: one of four sub 2 minute clockings this season.

He carried the pressure of favourite with great aplomb in a race of fluctuating pace which at times saw him boxed in and all of the field in contention at 600 metres. Coming off the top bend in 3rd place, his kick took him to the front 60 metres from the finish and the outcome was never in doubt as he crossed the line to win in 2.00.75.
