Ulster Rugby Star Breaks 100m And 200m Records At Schools Championships

Aaron Sexton broke 100m and 200m records at the Ulster Schools Athletics Championships at the Antrim Forum track on Saturday.

The 18-year-old, representing Bangor Grammar School, won the senior boys 100m in 10.49 seconds.

He later followed that victory up with another in the 200m. His time of 21.20 was also an Ulster Schools best. Though, it did not beat his personal best of 21.06.

Sexton is also an Ulster Rugby star. He made his first senior appearance for the province last August in a pre-season game against Gloucester.

Earlier this month, he was named Ulster A Player of the Year on the back of his performances in the British and Irish Cup.
