As the busy athletics season continues, our Fatima boys continue to produce outstanding performances. At the National Relay Championships held on February 7th, 2013 the team retained its top 3 ranking among all-male schools after medalling in each age group division. The boys in gold and blue impressed in the under-14 4x200m and 4x100m; under-15 4x200m; under-17 4x100m; and in the under-20 4x100m and 4x400m.
At the under-14 level, the team of David Callender (Form 1-1), Kion Benjamin (Form 1-1), Elisha Taylor (Form 1-4), and Orlando Gomez (Form 1-2) won a bronze medal in the 4x200m event. In the 4x100m race Benjamin, Callender and Taylor were joined by Jonathan Creese (Form 1-1) to earn 2nd spot.
Two more bronze medals were added by the under-15 and under-17 boys. Jeremiah Garcia (form 2-2), Jodian Blackman (Form 1-1), Joshua McMillan (Form 2-3) and Jordan Casimire (Form 1-1) did us proud in the under-15 4x200m. Whilst in the under-17 4x100m relay, Jordan Moses (Form 3-3), Xavier Mulugata (Form 4-3), and Justin Phillip (Form 3-4) just missed out on earning silver.
Our most senior athletes in the under-20 division brought home two more medals to take the total count to 6. Quarter-milers Breon Mullings, Brandon Brown, Nahshon Rullow, and Akil Olliverrie (all from Form VI) finished third in their race. Fatima College retained its #1 ranking in the 4×100 as Dwight Thomas, Abraham Bowen, Breon Mullings, and Alexander Prevatt raced home in a time of 43.64 seconds on a slow Ato Boldon stadium track. Here’s the full thirty (30)-man team at this year’s National Relay Championship
