St John’s pupil Ardan Suphi (Fourth Form, East House) has triumphed at the South of England Indoor Rowing Championships, which took place on Sunday 8 February at Brookes Sports Centre, Oxford.

Representing the School, Ardan was placed second overall in the event, coming home with the silver medal. Winning his heat with a total distance of 1,132 metres in four minutes, Ardan was beaten to the gold by a mere 12 metres. He said of the achievement, “It was really close, but I tried my hardest and am satisfied with my result.”

Director of Sport at St John’s, Nick Platt, commented, “Many congratulations to Ardan. It was a fantastic effort and I am very impressed both with his performance on Sunday and the mature and independent way in which he has gone about his training. He has done himself and St John's proud.”
