LEWIS Shaw, currently in Yr8 at The Sutton Academy, has been selected to compete for Merseyside in the U15 Boys 80m Hurdles at the English Schools Athletics Championships.

The championships are being held at Manchester Regional Athletics Stadium this weekend (Fri 9- Sun 11).

It will be Lewis’s first time competing for Merseyside after only taking up the sport two years ago.

Under the guidance of his coach Neal Petley, Lewis has trained hard throughout lockdown, despite not having a track to train at for the majority of the last year.

He was rewarded with winning ‘The Most Improved Male Athlete 2020’ by Warrington Athletics Club.
