He also secured the under-17 long jump title at the championships.

He won both the hurdles and long jump titles at the Warwickshire Schools’ Championshops, before going to win a gold and silver at the Midland Championships.

Representing the Midlands at the School Games in Loughborough, Sumners finished an excellent fourth. Sumners is currently ranked fourth in the UK at 100m hurdles under-17 level, and 18th in the UK at long jump.
