Lymm High School athlete, Jordan Jones travelled to Birmingham on Saturday 16th June, to compete in the Mason Trophy Inter Counties Schools Championships.
Representing Cheshire, the young athlete had qualified through the Cheshire Schools Track and Field Championships earlier this month, completing a solo run in the 1500m steeplechase.
During the race he smashed his personal best, knocking eight seconds off, to finish in 4.33 minutes to be crowned Cheshire Champion.
The fast time placed Jones 4th in UK’s U17’s rankings, as well as inside the English Schools qualifying time, earning him the right to represent his county at the prestigious Birmingham stadium.
Other Lymm High School athletes who competed in the Cheshire Schools’ AA Track and Field championships included Jasmine Jones, 8WL, in the Junior Girls 800m and Eva Ferris, 8DH, in the Junior Girls 1500m.
The Mason Trophy Inter Counties Schools’ Championships at Birmingham saw Jordan Jones’s summer continue to get better.
Running in the Inter Boys 1500m steeplechase, Jordan pulled away on the first lap and raced to 1st place winning Gold! Absolutely tremendous! – that’s some achievement and there’s surely more to come.
Jordan now looks forward to representing Cheshire in the English Schools Athletics Association (ESAA) Track and Field Championships in July.
We wish him the best of luck!
