Gold for Nana & Brandon

A 10.78 semi set him up as the fastest qualifier and then a 10.83 final into a 2m headwind secured the title Marian Owusuwaah (Under 15 100m) and Jade Fitt (Under 19 400 hurdles) both made their finals with fine runs – Jade running a great pb of 64.07 to win her heat, but both found the final tough finishing 8th and 7th respectfully. Luke Okosieme took 7th in the Under 19 high Jump with 1.92m, Abbie Stewart 9th in the under 17 discus with 29.28m whist Prince Mulumba ran 11.84 into a headwind in the Under 15 boys 100m but was not quick enough to progress to the final
