Stefan Amokwandoh is looking towards the Olympics
CROYDON athlete Stefan Amokwandoh is on track for future success after claiming a gold medal at the Sainsbury’s 2013 School Games.
The 17-year-old was crowned triple jump champion with a best jump of 14.37m at Sheffield’s Don Valley Stadium at the weekend.
The Sainsbury’s School Games featured more than 1,600 athletes competing in 12 sports across eight venues, and is billed as a mini Olympic Games.
Amokwandoh said: “I am really pleased. The season has had its ups and downs and I am just glad I was able to come out and perform.
“Olympics is my aim, and I am building it bit by bit. I want to make the GB side by making the standard and to just go and have fun.”
The Sainsbury’s 2013 School Games, which is supported by National Lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, was held in venues across Sheffield from 12-15 September 2013. Visit www.2013schoolgames.com for more information.
