Ed O'Hara, coached by Alan Woodland, represented Oxfordshire at the English Schools Combined Events Finals in Stoke over the weekend. The team of Ed, Peter Barnshaw (Abingdon Amblers) and Marcus Woodington (Oxford City) finished second in the team event.
In the Individual Event Ed put together a series of outstanding performances. He managed 6 personal bests (including two club records).
During the second day he also had to cope with an ankle injury which looked like it might scupper his chances. He finished 4th following a brilliantly judged 1500m.
In finishing 4th Edward has been selected as part of the team to represent England at the Combined Events International in the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow on 3rd December.
