KING'S School pupils Jonathan Hodgson and Flavia Kumar both won gold medals in the under-15 triple jump competitions at the Cambridgeshire Amateur Athletics Championships at the weekend.

The school's newly-appointed director of athletics, Richard Powell, said he was delighted with the success of the two 14-year-old Year 9 pupils and is excited about the prospects for a crop of young athletes.

There were other good performances from six pupils who competed against athletes a year older than them: Lucy Clift was fourth in 800 metres and fifth in the 100 metres, Alicia Casey was fourth in the long jump, David Scott was fifth in the 800 metres and sixth in the high jump; Tom Turner was sixth in the 800 metres; Michael Brennan was sixth in the long jump and William Gould was fifth in the 800 metres.

King's is currently investing in improved athletics facilities - including a new long jump pit - thanks to the support of the Friends of the King's School.
