Isaac Rothwell wins bronze medal at School Games National Finals
Isaac Rothwell earned a bronze medal at the School Games National Finals.
The Cambridge & Coleridge AC runner was selected to compete at Loughborough University in the 1,500m, alongside clubmate George Keen.
Rothwell clocked 4min 3.76sec to take third spot in a highly competitive race.
Keen was fourth, but then won silver in the boys’ 400m relay with Team Paris.
“My experience at the School Games National Finals was amazing,” said Rothwell.
“I’m lucky to have the experience that I did at this age and take part in such a prestigious event. My highlight was coming together as a team and creating the team atmosphere. I was over the moon with a bronze medal as it was a slow tactical race which I feel I dealt with well.
“I would 100 per cent do it again if I had the opportunity and I’m very grateful to have met the people I did, and experience things not many people get to experience.”
Cambridge athlete Thomas Miller took part in the boys’ 100m wheelchair race, and was fifth in 20.85sec.
He was then part of the victorious universal relay team.
Issy Routledge and Jasmine Westley won silver medals, representing Team Knight in the cricket.
In the first match against Team Brunt, Routledge captained the team to a 19-run win.
In the second match, Routledge played and took a wicket as they secured a seven-wicket success over Team Sciver.
Routledge then took three for 24 in the third and final match but Team Knight suffered a 21-run defeat to Team Sciver, who won the gold medal.
