Fantastic result for Sasha at the World Schools

sasha 23rd in the Middle Distance Race

Well done, Sasha!

Here he is in the traditional medal winners’ pose along with Dane Blomquist of the England team. Take a look at the results and pics on the WSC2013 website – if you think it looks hot and sunny in this photo then imagine that run-in along all that loose sand.

Sasha also came 6th in the Long Distance race and teamed up with Jens Van Lommel of Belgium/Flemish team and Xiaojia Ou of China to come 35th out of 148 in the Friendship Relay. I guess a handover is the same whatever language you speak but must have been interesting trying to discuss routes afterwards?
