Harrow Athletic Club's Junior Ejehu has been selected to run for Britain in the World Junior (under 20) Athletics Championships in Poland later this month.
The 17-year-old has been chosen for the sprint relay following a superb early season where he has set new club under 20 records of 10.64 for 100 metres and 21.46 for the longer sprint. He has two more years in this age group so will be still eligible for the World Juniors in 2010 as well as the European under-20 event next year.
Meanwhile, Adam Bowden achieved the 'B' qualifying standard for the Olympic Games in finishing fourth in a high quality steeplechase in Solihull on Saturday.
The 25-year-old ran 8.29.52, his second fastest time and best since 2006, but will need to gain the 'A' standard of 8.24.60 to expect selection for Beijing. Peter Norris was close to his best in finishing 15th in the same race, clocking 9.25.79. Matt Carey returned to good form in the 1,500 metres, recording his second best time of 4.01.40.
Harrow's Southern League men's squad continued their unbeaten start in Division Three north with a comprehensive victory at Bannister on Saturday.
Richard Carr was the star of the show, winning the high jump and long jump with classy leaps of 1.85m and 6.45m, and also taking the 200 metres.
International veteran Rohan Samuel won the 100 metres while Mark McIntosh, Mohammed Rahim, Jim Cooper and Luke Hunt made a clean sweep of the middle distance events.
Marcus Alexander-Neil made a welcome return to competition, taking the shot and discus double, while James Chapman was back after injury to win the hammer with 38.50 metres. Harrow also won both relays to keep their position at the top of the league table.
