BGS Athlete's Achievement in European Championships
Year 14 pupil Mark Patterson achieved great things in the European Junior Athletics Championships in Serbia in July.
Running in the 800m, he got through the heat to the semi-final where he came second. In the final he came 8th. This means that he is ranked 8th in the whole of Europe, a great achievement.
Conditions for running were far from ideal with temperatures reaching 40 degrees celsius. Mark must have been exhausted having run three such intense races in three consecutive days.
Well done, Mark! The School is proud of you!
Mark will shortly receive his A Level results after which he will have a lot of thinking to do about his future. We wish him luck.
