Athlete, Douglas Noel, ranks 7th in UK

2017_sport_Douglas Noel RSCN4381St Edmund’s and Invicta athlete Douglas Noel (L6) produced some outstanding PBs in the English Schools Multi Events Championships held in Boston, Lincolnshire last weekend.  The octahlete ran the hurdles 400m and 1500m faster than he had ever done and threw the discuss javelin further than he has achieved in a multi event and high jumped to more points than any other Invicta athlete in an octathlon.  His fantastic total of 4816 points means he achieved the national standard for the event and now ranks him 7th in the country –  a fifth place would have given him a chance to compete for GB in Ireland later in the year.  We wish Douglas continued success as he moves up to the U20 age group and onto the decathlon for next season.
