Form 4 pupil Issy Morris claimed the Welsh Under 17s Indoor 3000m title in some style at the championships which were held at the National Indoor Athletics Centre in Cardiff on Saturday 12th January.
Sports Scholar Issy completed the 15 laps in a time of 10 mins 31 sec- a full 23 seconds ahead of her nearest rival – although just outside her Personal Best which she set on her way to victory in the Under 15 outdoor equivalent last summer.
Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, said: “This is a stunning achievement for Issy. She was actually using this event as preparation for the Welsh Schools Cross Country Championships being held in Brecon next month but she stormed to victory in this race! This is typical of Issy however as she gives 100% in everything that she does. She is an exemplary pupil, achieves so much and is so phenomenally busy and committed. We’re very proud of her!”
Issy is now focusing on the Welsh Schools Cross Country Championships being held in Brecon on 1st February where she hopes to secure her place in the Welsh Schools Cross Country team for the third year in a row. Issy’s win comes just a week after another Year 10 Sports Scholar at Christ College, Amelia Reynolds, bagged two gold medals at the Welsh Athletics Junior Grand Prix at the same venue.
