National Medal for Kristian

Posted: 31st Aug 2017 by Lewis Smith

Kristian Samwell-Nash has continued his amazing first season in Athletics by winning a Silver Medal in the 300m, at the England Athletics National U15 & U17 Championships, in Bedford over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Kristian, who only took up the sport in April, ran a personal best of 36.15s in the heats on Saturday, the fastest time in the heats. On Sunday, having dominated the whole race he was only just beaten at the line but ran another personal best of 35.96s to get the silver medal, solidifying his ranking as 2nd fastest in the UK this year.

Kristian has now has broken the U15M 300m Club Record six times this season!   

A surprise for Kristian was that the medals were awarded in front of a packed grandstand by his Coach, Stella Bandu.

Ashford AC also had another athlete at the event, Sarris Teale, competing in the U15G's Triple Jump. Despite breaking the Club Record six days earlier, this is a new event for Sarris and this was her first experience of competing at a National Championship. Sarris made the Final and finished a very impressive 7th overall with 10.11m.

Kristian will be joining Marshall Smith, Sarris Teale, Cameron Amedee, and Hannah Owen to represent Kent at the Southern Inter-County Championships in Oxford in a couple of weeks time.
