Outstanding performances by Oakham athletes at the Achilles Relays

Oakham School athletes performed outstandingly at the recent Achilles Schools’ Relays in Oxford. Out of 12 relay events, Oakham’s teams won 7 Golds and 5 were placed second. There were also 7 confirmed School records and 5 new Achilles records, making our pupils some of the fastest independent school athletes in the country.

Assistant Director of Sport Mr Trefon Vandoros said, “ It was the most extraordinary day of track running. Teamwork, passion, celebration! We could not have planned it more perfectly. Each performance called on the next team to perform better than the one before! Each team celebrated the extraordinary finishes of not just the last runner but every runner before them. Every runner ran to the finish line like their lives depended on it.”
