Matthew Phillips qualifies for the English School Multi Event finals for the second consecutive year

Matthew competed in the regional finals of the under 17 Octathlon at Middlesbrough. He didn’t expect to qualify against older competition but against all the odds Matthew finished 5th in the region. Matthew also won the 400m and 1500m events. He attained personal bests in 100m Hurdles, Javelin, Discus, 1500m and 400m.

Well done and good luck for the National finals in September.
