Kent Schools 220 Yards Relay Champions 1945

This photograph of the Borden Grammar School team who won the Kent Schools 220 yards Relay Championship in 1945 was sent in by Ken George (1937-1945) who was an outstanding sprinter at School.  At London University, he clocked 10.1 for the 100 yards, and 23.2 for the 220, which was some going in those days.  He once raced against the Usain Bolt of the post-War era, the Jamaican E. McDonald Bailey.  Unfortunately, he lost!
