Onyeka ends outstanding season in style with Gold and Silver at SIAB International

27 Sep 2021

Onyeka Okoh started 2021 with little to no experience of the 400m Hurdles event - which makes his achievements this season all the more exceptional - and he ended the season in fine style by taking Silver in the SIAB Schools International in Derby at the weekend, recording yet another PB, crossing the line in a time of 53.31, and hence breaking the club U17 record again.

He then ran the first leg for England in the 4x400m relay, and proudly took home a team Gold too.

Just as a reminder of his achievements in 2021:

English U17 Championship - 400mH - Gold
English Schools Championships - 400mH - Silver
SIAB International - 400mH - Silver
Manchester International - 400mH - Silver - GB U18
UK School Games - 400mH - Silver
Essex Schools Championships - 400mH - Gold - CBP
Essex County Championships - 400mH - Gold - CBP
Essex County Championships - 400m - Gold

He broke the club U17 400mH record on numerous occasions - AND also claimed the club record for 400mH over the Senior Men's height!

Congratulations Onyeka! Now, make sure you take a rest!
