Fisayo Flies at the Nationals

Year 3 Grange Senior School pupil and speed merchant, Fisayo Williamson-Taylor, set two personal best times in the National Indoor Athletics Championships in Sheffield last weekend.

Competing in the under 15 age group, Fisayo smashed his previous best in the 60 metre sprint heat as he streaked home to first place and a fabulous time of 7.41 seconds.  In the semi-final Fisayo clocked a slightly slower time but managed a 3rd place finish to claim his spot in the final. He then executed his race well in the final, coming within a whisker of equalling his personal best, as he recorded a time of 7.42 seconds on his way to 6th place.

On the Sunday Fisayo returned for the 200 metres but found himself in the same heat as title favourite.  With only the winner of each heat plus two fastest losers to qualify for the final, Fisayo was unable to progress despite finishing his heat in 2nd place and breaking the personal best he set at the Northern Championships as he recorded 23.72 seconds.
