James Harding withdrew from his events to try to get a time for the 1500m to attend the Junior World Champs. This was done in a Senior Men’s paced race at the conclusion of day 1. He didn’t manage the time he needed after the effort that he had put into his 800m record earlier in the week but did run a PB. A clean sweep of the Boy’s 1500m races for King’s students who are part of Perry’s well trained running group.
