Polly Maton leaps to Silver

Many congratulations to Upper Sixth pupil, Polly Maton who stepped up on to the podium in July at the World Para Athletics Championships in London to receive her Silver Medal.

Polly represented Team GB in both the 100m and Long Jump at the games. She delighted herself and the home crowd with her last jump in the T47 long jump – 5.23m which was a lifetime best that upset the field and claimed the Silver Medal.

Polly has previously competed in Doha and Rio and now has here sights set on Tokyo 2020. We wish her much success in the future.
