Tim Penley (Year 9) has had a massive season this year in Athletics. Having been selected to represent Buckinghamshire a few weeks ago, he competed in the Pole Vault at the English Schools Competition and won the Bronze medal with a huge 3.45m jump. This was a personal best for Tim and has put him at National standard.
Going into the competition, he was ranked 10th or 11th out of 12 competitors. Once the results are published on Power of 10, it is expected for him to be ranked joined 7th in the whole of the UK, which will be a massive jump up from his current 17th position.
Tim was one of only two people from the 40-strong Buckinghamshire team who came home with a medal.
A huge congratulations to Tim; Walton High is very proud of you!
