Well done to athlete Evan in Form 7, who has been awarded the Jim Sharlott Memorial Trophy for ‘Best athlete performance’ in 2019-2020 by the Leicestershire and Rutland Athletics Association (LRAA).
The LRAA informed Evan of his achievement at the Outdoor County Championship, where he won the 200m race in 21.8 seconds. He has since had a tough season due to injury but is now back to near full training and is looking forward to the indoor season.
Director of Athletics, Mr Tref Vandoros, said, “It is fantastic that Evan has been awarded such a great prize and to see all his preparation and hard work pay off. He is an incredibly talented athlete and fully deserves this awesome accomplishment.”
Evan has run up a collection of sporting accolades over the past couple of years with wins at the SIAB championships and fantastic performances at the England Athletics U17 Championships.
