Whitgift pupil, Farren Morgan, is force to be reckoned with on the athletics track. Having won the 200m and 400m at the Kent County championship earlier this year, he went on to win the 400m at the southern England inter-championship in a time of 49.5. Going into the IAAF World Junior Trials undefeated in the U20 400m track event, Farren finished second, smashing his own personal best. He went into the competition ranked 25th in the UK and came out ranked 5th, resulting in an invitation to compete at the Olympic Trials in Birmingham at the weekend, an event that will see the likes of James Ellington, Jennifer Ennis and Dwain Chambers competing. The Sixth Former commented before the event, “This will be my first ever experience racing against senior and very experienced athletes. I am looking forward to competing against my role models and the people I see on TV.” Although failing to progress through the heats, the event has no doubt raised his profile in national athletics.
