On Saturday 22nd February, Thomas Hockley joined over 1000 athletes from across the UK to compete in Sheffield at the National Indoor Athletics Championships. This followed his success in the South of England Indoor Championships in January, when he won a gold medal for the U17 Men’s 400m.
Thomas first had to take part in the heats. He won his heat and secured his place in the final. In a close run competition, Thomas crossed the line in second place, with an indoor personal best of 51.02 seconds.
Thomas is now in a strong position at the start of the outdoor season. He continues to train hard towards his goal of a place in the U17 England team.
