Speedy King’s Ely pupil, Oliver Loveday, sprinted his way to victory at the National Preparatory Schools’ Athletics Championships.

Oliver, who is in Year 8 at King’s Ely Junior, joined top athletes from prep schools across the UK to compete in the Championships, which were held at The Pingles Stadium in Nuneaton on July 4th.

Oliver, who is moving up to King’s Ely Senior in September, ran in the Under 14 Boys’ 800m race. He not only came first, but also achieved a new personal best by crossing the finish line in a superb 2 minutes and 9 seconds.

A pupil at King’s Ely since joining King’s Ely Acremont Nursery as a baby, Oliver qualified for the Championships after winning the same category at the Regional Heats in Bedfordshire, where he also broke the competition record by 2 seconds.
