Three Dacorum & Tring AC athletes scored outstanding results in the England Athletics U17 and U15 Championships held at Bedford International Stadium.

Super sprinter Chenna Okoh once again showed his class, winning the U15 300m with a championship record and personal best time of 35.58, which earned him a £75 voucher as a reward for his efforts.

The club had two other stellar results: Michael Fryer finished fourth in the U15 pole vault with a leap of 3.40, not far off his PB of 3.50, which currently ranks him fifth overall for his age group in the UK.

Jackson Cowans, meanwhile, qualified to compete in the U15 triple jump and achieved a new PB of 12.52 to finish fifth. His new PB vaults him into the top-eight in the UK rankings.
